I felt really bad for laura the poor thing working so hard.I dis-liked Eliza Jane in this one.She was a bit annoying.I know she was just trying to help and meant well. But she was kind of helping him in the wrong why. I hated how Almanzo just gave up all hope to live. It must of been hard to be a famer back that. I liked how laura tired to push him to do things for himself.

My heart went out to Laura. She and Almanzo worked hard and then he fell ill then had that stroke. He pushed Laura away and wouldn't let her try to help him. Eliza Jane didn't help matters by babying him. Laura wanted him to do things on his own so he would get better.

I can't imagine how hard this must have been back then..did Almonzo suffer long in real life? They made him so whiny in this episode, it made me want to yell at him, he barely did anything at all to help himself.

I thought it was funny how a hail storm started off the LHOP season with Charles losing his crop and then later it was Almonzo's.

He was very sick, indeed. Laura and Almanzo suffered from diphteria, and Laura was O.K after a while, but Almanzo wanted to wake upo and go to work too early (as sho9wn at the TV show), and suffered a stroke that let him almost crippled. He got well and could keep woriking in the fields, but Rose could recall that when she was a girl, his father used to put ger feet inside hot water and salt, to ease the pain he felt after a long farm work day.

i guess they did the best they could with the knowledge they had.
When did they build more of the house, was the next episode a "fast-forward" and they were in the new home until the boarding house was left to them? I didn't watch as many of the later ones years ago.

I also realized in this episode, none of the children except Albert said anything. Cassandra, Carrie, they all were silent. Albert said yes sir when asked to watch the house and yes to Eliza about being monitor at school if needed, but not a word it seemed from anyone but the main characters. Seemed odd especially seeing Rose for the first time.

The next episode is Mr. Edwards's return to WG and they are living in the new house Almanzo built, so we just have to assume it got built at some point.

Hello, in my opinion, this was a HUGE mistake. This was a good epie, very well directed and acted, but there is A LOT of historical inaccuracies. First of all, Laura was the first one to catch the diphtheria. HER attack was much worse than Manly's attack.  In fact, he got the diphtheria caring for her. How sweet..... anyways, Rose was born, in afct, she was almost two when diphtheria happened. Also, Manly was very mature when this happened. In real life. He wasn't a self pitying lump of a man. Most of all, if they wanted Rose to be born in this episode, then they should've done it in an another episode. Final decision, good acting, and Don Balluck, look at the script.

The show was only based upon the books--which are also fiction--not meant to be real life. Michael Landon was a good storyteller through the medium of television. Not all books can translate directly from the printed word to the big or small screen.

Over the years, I've had to put aside my attention to detail and realize LHOP is a show that continues to attract fans nearly 40 years after it first aired. People obviously relate to it, no matter how accurate it is.

That is true.

Chill out everybody. This show wasn't meant to be historical record and no one connected with it ever said it was was . It was meant to convey a message, and the writers did a great job in doing just that!! Everyone needs to read a couple of the books and then imagine yourself packing it in to a one hour screenplay. NOT an easy task.

I have to agree and understand. It would be very hard to follow a movie to book cover. I think some things in books wouldn't be good in a T.V show how or movie. Then again I haven't the books. Expect a few pages from the first novel.

I don't mean to go off topic. They did change things in Road to Avonlea. They did however use some things from the novels for episodes. I've read all the books. Noticed few changes.

I did however liked this episode.Smile

RTA is another perfect example, Krissy. Books and television are very different mediums. And overall, I would rather the focus be on telling a good story for TV than sticking to the books or the history. Even Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, which did a good job of sticking to the history of the times, wandered away from it from time to time.

Absolutely not, you didn't make me mad. You keep expressing yourself in any way you want. That's what this forum is all about. We ALL have our opinions........
and you are entitled to yours!

Smile Yeah! I do understand more or less about not being able to follow the books. I got thinking RTA would have been boring with out adding aunt hetty.
Just like LHOTP be boring id The olsen family wasn't on it.

I guess if M.L Didn't make the show the why he did. It couldn't have lasted all 9 season.

You are right, the show would be boring without the Olesons.

I don't think I have ever seen all of this episode ( or the second part) even though they are very important episodes. I know that I have to watch them soon! Especially since I have this season on dvd so I really have no excuse not to watch it ShyGirl

I finally started watching this episode this morning, it is very sad to see Almanzo feeling so sorry for himself that he doesn't even try to get better. Even when Doc Baker says he thinks Almanzo can make a full recovery if he works hard at it. I am looking forward to watching the second part of this episode.
