The Waltons Season 9--"Goodnight Mama, Daddy, Mary Ellen, Jo

"The final season of The Waltons finds Michael Learned (Olivia Walton) no longer a cast member, while Robert Wightman has now officially joined the cast as John-Boy. Although this is the greatest weakness of the season, The Waltons still delivered intersting, and some exciting, episodes.
The season begins in the spring of 1945, and all the Walton men--save John--are fighting the war. Ben is captured by the Japanese forces, Jason has to deal with the question of killing another man, and John-Boy (played by Robert Wightman) falls in love with a French girl.
Back at home, Mary Ellen discovers a need for a doctor on the mountain and is determined to become one, while facing a great deal of opposition. Ike and Corabeth are investigated by the rations board, and a new minister comes to the mountain. Jim-Bob is frantic when a girl back home claims to have his baby, Cidny finds that she has been adopted, and the series ends with John-Boy going back to New York.
The following is an epidode list for this final season:
1. The Outrage (1)
2. The Outrage (2)
3. The Pledge
4. The Triumph
5. The Premonition
6. The Pursuit
7. The Last Ten Days
8. The Move
9. The Whirlwind
10. The Tempest
11. The Carousel
12. The Hot Rod
13. The Gold Watch
14. The Beginning
15. The Pearls
16. The Victims
17. The Threshold
18. The Indiscretion
19. The Heartache
20. The Lumberjack
21. The Hostage
22. The Revel
While the show ended in 1981, it would continue in 6 made-for-TV-movies from 1982-1997, moving from the characters from the forties and into the sixties. In these TV movies, Richard Thomas returns as John-Boy and Michael Learned is back as Olivia, while Ellen Corby makes a few appearances as Grandma. Hopefully, Warner Brothers will release these 6 TV movies, as it would be great to own the entire Walton legacy on DVD."
Now we wait for the remaining 6 tv movies to be released.

"As someone else ALSO pointed out the waltons series ARE NOT ended with this final 9nth regular season. There are also 6 post tv movies and one prequel movie which COMPLETE the series.
The prequel movie "homecoming" is here BUT what about the remaining 6 post tv movies ?
I Hope they will be released too SOON so that we can have OUR COMPLETE WALTONS DVD COLLECTION."
Can't Wait !

"Season Nine will probably be most fans least favorite, but being that I missed most of these episodes on CBS when they first ran, it made me enjoy the later seasons even more when I watched the re-runs.
If you are true fan of the series, you will still like season Nine. There are many new characters, but the writing is still excellent."

"Season 9 of the Waltons is a big disappointment. I have the entire series on DVD and enjoyed watching this show growing up. However, after reviewing season 9 DVD, I have to say that it is a disappointment. Season 9 has gotten away from the family themed show that dominated the previous 8 seasons. From Ike's infidelity, to Mary Ellen's presumed dead husband wanting nothing to do with her to the unmarried young lady claming Jim Bob is the father of her unborn child--season 9 seems to be an attempt by the producers, writers, etc.. to liberalize the show. The absence of Ralph Waite and Michael Learned for the majority of the season adds to the disappointment. The recasting of John Boy was poor. The bright point of Season 9 is the presence of Peggy Rea as Rose and the continued presence of Ronnie Claire Edwards as Corabeth."
