I think this is a little bit of an unbelievable episode...

I do love the Nellie's Restaurant scenes... Laughing

Especially the corset snapping on Mrs. O.!!!!!!!!! Laughing

I thought so too. It seems that head trauma can cause temporary blindness, but I can't imagine anyone regaining his sight after having it gone for so many years.

I agree, the restaurant episodes are hilarious.

Good point.I'am so glad He got his sight back. I could tell mary was maybe a little jelouse. But i can understand her feeling left out too. Glad he passed his test and got to do what he loves.

Mrs. Oleson going into the restaurant in her corset is funny every time you watch it. I don't know what the show would have been like without her...sure at times she was too mean, but this episode, the one with Nellie and the pig farmers son Luke, the poison ivy camping trip, the list goes on...she is hysterical.

I would have been a bit envious too as Mary, if I hadn't gotten my sight back...you feel threatened and Adam was a bit clueless as he left Mary in other episodes by herself at garden party, etc. He was blind a long time to forget how it is to not have your site. They had a lot in common, but blindness bonded them in the beginning...too bad we couldn't see how their life continued with him seeing.

I love this episode too. Gotta love Mrs. O! laugh3

I noticed something horrible though. I was reading episode air dates. Part 2 of this episode's first ever air date was on 12/8/80...the very night John Lennon was shot! It aired just a few hours before. I never realized that! How sad. bawling

I just saw the Mrs Oleson scene in the restaurant landing on the table, hysterical. : )

I thought Adam in this episode was very "blind" to everything he couldn't see. How after so many years on not seeing, he could forget what it's like to be Mary. The first time he ran around thanking God, you could say, he was in shock and not thinking, he was so happy. But later at the croquette games, leaving her to sit there alone, suddenly "teaching" was not his calling, mentioning all the things they could do now, that HE could see and not her.

I'm overly sensitive to things, but I could understand Mary's fear for a while. I wish we got to see more how they developed later, but alas, they left the show.

The resturant scenes with Mrs.Oleson was funny. When she went to pour popcorn kernals into the pot, she ended up putting the whole jar in there and put a lid on it and after it started popping, you would think glass would be popping out. Nels startled her and she dropped the glass jar in the pan. Adam should have been more considerate of Mary. It was like he forgot she was blind.

Loved this one! laugh3

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.

I liked this episode and I also didn't like this episode.

Plusses:  Adam and Mary screentime, especially when he sees Mary for the first time and exclaims about how pretty she is.  So sweet!  Adam running through the field to celebrate being sighted again and exclaiming that the world is wonderful.

Mrs. Oleson and her popcorn / Nellie and Percival were funny comic relief as usual.

Minuses: Adam shouldn't have had his sight return, the main thing that was so romantic/emotional about Adam and Mary's relationship was that he taught Mary through being blind and was blind from his youth...not really realistic.  I wonder whose idea this was.... scratchead and what could have been had they left him blind. Oh Well

Oh...and it was sooo cliched that Adam suffers the double misfortunes of being robbed the night before one of the exams AND getting so ill he misses the last exam! Typical Michael Landon-written calamities!

One other thing about these episodes..... I found it so disturbing that Adam didn't remember what worries and insecurities he went through when Mary had those false senses of regaining her sight in the episode "The Enchanted Cottage".

If the Raschellas had written these eps instead of Michael Landon, I'm thinking they would have made Adam more sympathetic with Mary's concerns about him regaining his sight.

There should have been a few scenes put in these episodes to show that Adam empathized with Mary's insecurities about him having regained his sight.....it was so out of character for him not to have the empathy with Mary's feelings as that was always such a trademark of their relationship.

I don't know how to feel about this one sometimes. It seemed totally unbelievable to me; but assuming it could happen, Adam's reaction seems normal. He's thinking mostly of himself because it is so exciting to be able to see after all this time. He also thinks of what it will mean for him and Mary, not just him.

Since it was rare that characters referenced past events, I can't say I was surprised Adam having empathy for Mary didn't happen at all.

Yeah, I guess my expectations are too high! I'm expecting a lot more detail than what's given onscreen. Laughing

Just imagine what LHOP might have been if they had long story arcs like they have in some modern shows.

Actually I do imagine that quite a bit!  I think that's why I feel sometimes not satisfied with some of these 2 parters or a single standalone episode....that there wasn't enough meat on the bones of the stories or enough character development. I should really stop whining about it all...makes me sad just imagining what could have been.... bawling
