Waltons, The: The Complete Seasons 1 - 3
They built their home on the timeless mountain that bears their name. They built their lives on even stronger stuff: the bedrock of family.
This 5-disc set features all 24 Year-One episodes of the beloved series that ran 9 years and won 5 Emmy Awards its inaugural year, including Outstanding Drama Series. Richard Thomas plays the key role of John-Boy Walton, a youth on the verge of manhood during the Great Depression and a fledgling writer whose observations are filled with the growing-up lessons and love he receives from father John, mother Olivia, Grandma, Grandpa and all the rest of The Waltons.
A year has gone by on Walton's Mountain. The Depression has deepened, but so have the love and respect that hold the Waltons together.
Share good times and hard times with America's favorite family in this 5-disc set featuring all 24 Year-Two Episodes - including The Thanksgiving Story, a poignant movie-length tale that won an Emmy Award for Best Writing in Drama (Series). This is the year John-Boy graduates from high school and delivers a baby, the year Mary Ellen falls in love, the year John and Olivia finally take their honeymoon, and the year Grandma and Grandpa separate (well, maybe just until tempers cool). Make yourself at home!
Change comes to Walton's Mountain. Scholarship winner John-Boy enters Boatwright University. Jason takes his big brother's place as head kid wrangler for the Walton brood while finding his own identity in music. John and Olivia celebrate 20 years of marriage. Grandpa and Grandma leave home (and return). But one thing can never change: the powerful family bond that keeps the Waltons united.
In this 5-disc set containing all 24 Season 3 episodes, the Waltons experience situations unique to the Depression, including a dance marathon and the construction of Blue Ridge Park. But mostly they face the age-old issues of family: holding children close and letting them go, doing without and making do. Topical yet timeless, of its era yet forever true. That's Season 3 of The Waltons.
