I was happy to find this community and sorry to see how quiet it is. I just commented on a post that I realized was over two years old. LOL
I'm actually a new fan. I'm a home care provider and my client, an elderly lady, watches The Waltons. Somehow, I got hooked. I'm a long-time fan of Richard Thomas from his other work, and just sort of got pulled in. I consider myself a realist by nature (not a cynic per-say, just realistic) but in spite of the occasional neck-snapping eye rolls it sometimes affords me, it really is endearing and well-acted.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to having a little community to bounce things off of as I enjoy the series for the first time.
That's all from me for now. Goodnight, John Boy.
I have a new layout up at the community! I hope you all enjoy it. Who all got the 7th Season DVD? I did, and watched it. It's not a bad season. I hope that there will be an annoucement about Season 8 soon. I'd love to have all of the seasons on DVD someday. Well, that'll be all for now.

Well, finally some news!! I got an email from tvshowsondvd.com
saying that the sixth season of The Waltons is finally coming to DVD in January!!!!!! I was so excited to see this email, I almost fell out of the chair! Here's
the link for more info. I'm sure the cover art will be posted there when they get it in. This'll sure be a good way to start off the new year!
And, in other news, I got a couple of autographs from 2 of the actors! Joe Conley
(Ike Godsey), he sent me two
, and Ralph Waite
(John Walton, Sr.)!! I'm so excited about those, I could just burst! :D
Also, I don't know if I've posted about the fanlisting I own for the Waltons. Everybody here should join
I'll go for now. I'll try not to be an absentee moderator so much.
just wanted to say hi, and that i'm glad I found this community. It seems like the Walton's is a forgotten show but every now and again, i get a glimmer of hope that there are still people who appreciate this show. I am plain old addicted to it and to be honest, at one point in my life I found John-Boy attractive (boy did i get some teasing about that) i still kind of do. i'd love to have a family like that. I appreciate my own, and my mom trys to give us the most modern equivalent of it- an open, honest, LOVING family, that supports one another, but i'm a softie and bit of a romantic, and there is something about The Walton's that is just... i really don't know the right word.
Oh, i'm rambling, which i do well.
Just some information
hometown - Richmond, VA (about a two, two-and half, maybe three hour drive from Schuyler VA- the real Walton's Mountain, and about 3-4 hours from Scottsville- home of the actual Dew Drop Inn)
good to meet fellow walton's fans
Well I am completely new to this community. I ABSOLUTELY love "The Waltons". I want to be writer just like John-boy, and my favorite episode is the one where the rosemary goes to see her sister and they need a substitute teacher. Ralph Waldo Emerson is my favorite philosipher...haha. Oh and it help if you know my name...Katie...

It seems as though the third season of the Waltons is scheduled to be released on 25 April. Hooray! :)
I have some sad news to report. Mary Jackson (Miss Emily Baldwin) died on December 10th. We've lost both of the Baldwin sisters now. :(
From Sitcoms Online:
Stage, film and TV actress Mary Jackson, who played Miss Emily Baldwin on "The Waltons," died in Hollywood Dec. 10. She was 95.
Born in Milford, Mich., Jackson taught school briefly before leaving Milford to pursue a theater career.
Through the 1940s and 50s, she worked in summer stock and on Broadway as well as stage productions in Chicago and Los Angeles. On Broadway, Jackson appeared in shows including "Kiss & Tell," "Eastward in Eden," "The Flowering Cherry" and "The Trial of the Canonsville Nine."
She worked primarily on TV through the 1950s and 60s, appearing in shows including "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "My Three Sons," "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Barnaby Jones." She was best known for her role as Miss Emily on "The Waltons" which ran from 1971-1982. She also appeared in several Waltons specials which were produced until 1997.
Starting in the 1970s, she performed in feature films, including the roles as Jane Fonda's mother in "Fun with Dick and Jane, " a nun in the first "Airport" movie and roles in "Blume in Love" and "Coming Home."
Jackson was a member of the Screen Actors GuildScreen Actors Guild, the Motion Picture Academy, Actors Equity and AFTRAAFTRA.
Though she suffered with Parkinson's disease in later years, she worked regularly on film projects until a stroke in 1997 made speech more difficult.
She survived by a goddaughter and godson.

In other news, I hope everyone here is well & that everybody has a happy and safe holiday season! I watched "The Homecoming" for my 3rd time, I think, a couple days ago. That's such a warm story. I'm glad I managed to find a copy of it.
I just finished watching "A Thanksgiving Story" from Season 2. It's the last one from season 2 that I watched, because I remember watching it on German television, and somehow they either cut out or I missed John Boy's accident, so the whole premise kind of seemed off to me. However, I forget that this was the episode where the Baldwins want to adopt Jason. That's one of my favourite storylines! I thought that episode was in Season 3, except that I was watching some other episode recently from later on in Season 2, and when a lot of people were talking, you hear Jason say something about "Jason Walton Baldwin", and that just seemed strange, because that would be out of order if the storyline really was part of Season 3.
Anybody know when Season 3 is coming out? I can't wait, because then I'll get to hear the song "The Maiden and the Soldier" by Jon Walmsley. :) (Oh yes, and then I can see the episodes uncut and in English!!!)
