LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE SEASON ONE DELUXE REMASTERED EDITION Review

You read right!  Little House on The PrairiSeason One will be available for the first time ever in High Definition On Blu-Ray And Digital HD.
It was released on March 25th, Timed To The 40th Anniversary Of
The Original Pilot Movie Broadcast On NBC From Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

I know a few of you are like me and reading this brought a HUGE smile to your face.  As a kid growing up I LOVED Little House on The Prairie!  Watching the Ingalls and their friends was a childhood past time for me.  On rainy days my mom would get out her Little House movies and we would have all day marathons.  My favorite scenes were the ones with Laura and Nelly.  I remember crying when Mary lost her sight and cheering when Almanzo finally seen Laura as a woman.  (FYI if you ever get a chance google the real Almanzo he was a cutie in real life!!)  I remember wanting to on several occasions pull Nelly and her mom's hair out.  And a tiny part of me always wished Charles Ingalls was my Pa.
I loved watching this show as a child and I'm excited I will now have the chance to share it with my children.

My review:
Well you can see for earlier in the post I'm def. a Little House on the Prairie fan.  I could go on for hours about how much I love the show and how all the characters are like beloved childhood friends to me.  I could also talk about all the life lessons the show teaches and even comment on how this will be something your children will remember watching with you.  (I remember watching them with my mom and I still remember the day I was home sick with a stomach bug and we watching the episode where Laura punched Nelly in the nose for talking badly about her Pa.  My mom and I couldn't stop giggling.)  I could tell you about all of this, but I think Little House is just one of those shows you need to watch for yourself to understand the magic behind it.
So instead of trying to put all that into words I will talk about the quality of the Remastered DVD.  I was beyond impressed!  It was like seeing one of my favorite shows new and improved.  The sound and picture quality are amazing and the DVD extras are awesome!
Whether you are already a Little House fan or someone who has yet to see the show you def. want to invest in this DVD set.  Its something you will cherish for years to come :)
