Reasons to Watch The Waltons
The Top Ten
It's a story about the American family, for heaven's sake! I mean, you can't get any more American than baseball, fried chicken, and corn on the cob, can you!?
He is one of my favorite characters on the show. I watched all nine seasons and I'm only 11 years old
OK, to you this may seem like a silly reason. But it's not! Richard Thomas makes John-Boy Walton come alive. I really appreciate this actor. And John-Boy has really inspired me to write a story to the very end.
There are seven children in this family, so you'll never feel bored while watching a show. Someone's always sleepwalking, teasing siblings, getting mad, playing music, writing something, falling in love, crashing the car, running away, etc., etc. Gosh, did I say "crashing the car"!? Ooops.
OK, it didn't actually say this, but this is a show that is clean. Clean and sober. No drugs, swear-words, cursing, or immodesty.
That's what we call it, anyway. Those kids are always helping each other [and bickering! ] but isn't that what sibling-ship is?!
Grandpa makes the show! His laughter, his way with trees and plants, the way he gets mad when John-boy called him 'vulpine' because he thought it meant deceitful [it really means smart]. Yup, Grandpa makes the show. Or how about the time he wondered if the Baldwin sisters would consider adopting him along with Jason...?
Hey, can't have Grandpa without Grandma! That lady makes us all laugh from her "Oh, you old fool! " [said to Grandpa at least 9,000 times a day] to her "Oh, Good Lord! ", Grandma always makes us laugh.
Daddy is as cool as a cucumber! When John-Boy was busted for writing letters for his friend Curtis to Curtis's loved one, Daddy just sat at the table, took a sip of coffee, and said, "Looks like you've got some explaining to do, son. "
Mama is the picture of motherhood. She's raised 7 children, and all of them grew up to have great careers and successful lives! [And every holiday, the Walton clan joins together again. Wish I could be part of it, sniff, sniff]
