  1. I have this version and it's not a good one. Many changes in the characters personalities and events. Laurie is very agressive towards his grandfather and so on... :(

  2. I have this version and I really enjoy it (probably because I've never read the book). My mom also enjoys it because there's so many TV actors she enjoyed as a girl. It's a bit strange to see some of them dressed up in Victorian garb, especially William Shatner! Not the most accurate version perhaps but it always makes me cry when Beth dies (a beautiful scene!).

  3. OMG! William Shatner as Prof. Bhaer. Did they realize what they were doing? Captain Kirk and Laurie Partridge and Jan Brady? They could have had Mary Tyler Moore as Marmee and Bea Arthur as Aunt Josephine and the 1970s aura would have been complete.
    Thanks for my teehee of the day. Perhaps it's funnier because I lived through the 1970s!

  4. Jenny, I was as surprised as you at some of the cast! Don't forget The Walton's...I think someone from that show would fit right in!

  5. It's a good thing that "The Shat" has an Emmy, he deserves it just by paying his dues for taking this role. So beneath him, but what the general public probably don't realize is that he more or less had to take this role, he was broke after having gone through a divorce. But the very next year he was filming Star Trek the Motion Picture which started the renewal of his entire career. OK, will now take off my Trekker hat.

  6. Teresa,
    I suppose we can thank Shatner's unemployment for his appearance in this series. Haven't seen it yet but eager to see his Bhaer!
