Have always loved Little House on the Prairie. Thought I had seen them all, but upon watching season 2, I guess I hadn't. This show is so wholesome I can watch it with the kids around.

Just to have these on DVD at all deserves 5 stars!

"Plenty of people have already reviewed these DVD's complaining about the sound quality and other related gripes that are probably valid. However, I can't give this series any less than 5 stars simply because I'm so thrilled to have them available at last! Rather than reminisce about my vicarious childhood in Walnut Grove (which no one cares to hear), here are the episodes of Season Two, in case anyone wants to know exactly what they'll be buying. These episodes were first aired from September 10, 1975 to March 31, 1976.The Richest Man in Walnut Grove
In the Big Inning
The Spring Dance
Remember Me, Parts 1 & 2
At the End of the Rainbow
His Father's Son
The Talking Machine
The Pride of Walnut Grove
A Matter of Faith
The Runaway Caboose
The Long Road Home
For My Lady

"I sent the following email to the imavision.com:
Please fwd this to your DVD production dept:
Just picked up Season 1 and 2 of LHOP. Although the USD price is reasonable, I am VERY disappointed in the quality. Here's why:
(1) Over use of EDGE ENHANCEMENT. The people in your tech/production dept will know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. DVD is a high resolution format to begin with; there is no need for this TRICK. It degrades the look immensely. Bottom line: images should have a smooth, film-like look.
(2) Variability of source material. Some episodes are sourced from very good elements; others look horrible (e.g., Remember Me Part I, Remember Me Part II in season 2).
(3) Opening intro/credits missing on most episodes. There is EPISODE-SPECIFIC info contained in the opening credits. And, as noted by other, many, many scenes cut from myriad episodes. Imavision cannot honestly make an "uncut and in their original form" claim if these are missing.
(4) Shabby audio: often sped up so it can be fit into a syndicated time slot. AFAICS, the "source masters" ARE syndicated versions, not original NBC prime-time versions.
(4) Lack of proper TOC, chapter encoding, and other random access features. It would be nice to jump from scene to scene (or, at least, mark the ORIGINAL commercial break points).
(5) Shabby packaging (over packaged). Too much to pull out; too many discs. Look at how many other TV series are released, then redesign your packaging scheme for the remaining seasons. The original Outer Limits series DVD set is an excellent example to follow: one easy-open case, each disc is dual-sided dual-layered, which allows all 27 episodes to fit on only 4 discs).
This is a superb TV series and I think it deserves the best DVD treatment.
Sincerely, K. Hashmi"

"This review refers to the 6 disc DVD set of "Little House on the Prairie..The Complete Season 2"....
So now by Season 2 of the Little House series, we really feel like part of the family. The beauty of having them on these DVD sets season by season, is having the pleasure of watching the characters grow, the relationships strengthen,and the love abundent, episode by episode. And how nice to share them with each new generation, as they are stories that may be enjoyed by the whole family and never get old. And ...without all the commercials!
Season 2 ran from 1975-1976. There are 21 episodes in all on 6 DVDs, for a total of about 18 hours of viewing pleasure for those that loved and still love this series. The stories range from whimsical to heart wrenching. All will move you in some way. The episodes included are: "The Richest Man In Walnut Grove"(Pa may have to work like a mule to provide for his family, but the love he recieves makes him rich in other ways),"Four Eyes","Haunted House","The Big Inning","The Campout","The Spring Dance" and the very touching 2 parter, "Remember Me"(Academy Award winner Patricia Neal is a dying widow who asks Charles to find a home for her children). You will also enjoy "Ebenezer Sprague","At the End of the Rainbow", "The Gift", "His Father's Son"(Mr. Edwards tries to bond with newly adopted son John Jr.), "The Talking Machine","The Pride of Walnut Grove", "A Matter of Faith"(I love this one...how DOES Caroline know exactly when to open the infection, so she won't lose her leg?), "The Runaway Caboose","Troublemaker","The Long Road Home", "For My Lady", "Centennial", "Soldiers Return"(this one took a bold step in 1976 to deal with drug addicted veterans), and finally "Going Home"(Charles wants to sell the Little House after being discouraged one more time by a tornado that ruined his crop).
If you are a big fan, you probably already know just by the titles what these stories are about, and for which ones you'll need to bring the along the Kleenex. And by now, we are also in tune to David Rose's wonderful and familiar music that sets the tone of the story and gives the perfect feel for each character.
I thought the DVDs were great. There are still no title credits for the major guest stars(but you'll recognize them), but the color correction is greatly improved, the picture clear and the stereo sound is great.Features include a photo gallery that shows various characters at different stages, some cast bios,and...the quiz works this time!(I aced it by the way). The fold out box opens nicely to the disc you are ready for and if you take a peek behind the folder in the back of the set you will find a nice brochure that lists all the episodes, what disc they are on and a brief summary of each story. Very Nice!
So gather the family around, "git out the way for Ole Dan Tucker"... and enjoy this treasure!...Laurie
If you have to have em all: Little House on the Prairie - Collection - Seasons 1 - 9

"Our family loves the shows. We have seen the first three season and are watching season 4. Not that we are experts, but none of us have noticed any problems with the cinematography as previously mentioned. It is great to see the example of a family that is NOT disfunctional -- it is something we need more of. I find these shows vastly superior to the majority of shows currently on TV and I highly recommend them."
I think we all love "Little House" except for the maker of t

"I won't bother to review Little House, I think pretty much everyone here agrees it's the quintessential American classic. The sad truth is that the company that made these DVD's doesn't seem to share our love for the show. Yes, they made a pretty box and disc's, but to anyone who's a bit of a classic TV box set-buff, you realize all too quickly that the company collecting your cash did a quickie-job on Little House. Some of the most pathetic televison shows are available beautifully remastered, and include interviews with cast members with wonderful stories and memories of the show. You're not going to see anything resembling this in these Little House series. Since most of us (any of us?)didn't have a VCR in the days these shows were aired, it's lovely to be able to own these episodes today on DVD, but don't expect any kind of improvement to some old VHS recordings in these box-sets. And why in the world couldn't they have at least gotten the pictures on the box-covers and disc's correct? Wrong dog, wrong characters on every season. I really don't think the people that made this ever saw the show!"
