But, that's not the long-and-short of the changes. We also witness the departure of Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary), Linwood Boomer (Adam), Allison Arngrim (Nellie) and Steve Tracy (Percival) from the series cast. In their absence, we're first introduced to Allison Balson as Nancy, the vicious Oleson adoptee who takes Nellie's loathsome, underhanded antics to a new, all-time low. At least, Willie Oleson (Jonathan Gilbert) is beginning to change and mature and aids the Wilders, Ingalls kids and other students in showing Nancy what's what.
Not only that, but we're graced near the end of the season with the return of Victor French as Laura's dear montain-man companion, Isaiah Edwards.
Many people know that much of the Little House television series was of Michael Landon's invention, as opposed to being derived directly from the books or Laura Ingalls Wilder's biographies. (For instance, Charles & Caroline never adopted any children.) However, this season includes a compacting of tragic turns that in reality did affected Almonzo & Laura's lives. These events included Almonzo contracting diptheria and suffering a stroke, the destruction of their farm and crops from a vicious hailstorm and a tornado that shook the Wilder house to pieces. According to the bonus interview with Dean Butler (Almonzo), these tragedies occurred, but respectively to each other, not in one fell swoop, as depicted on the show.
Side note: Jason Bateman's older sister, Justine was a star of the 80's television series, Family Ties with Michael J. Fox. Fox would later star in the 1985 comedy Teen Wolf, and Jason would take the leading role in its sequel, Teen Wolf Too. (It's only a coincidence that Little House series creator Michael Landon's first taste of fame was as the star in 1957's I Was a Teenage Werewolf.)
Season 8 seems a bit off though. I'm only about 3 disks into the season, but many of the long-standing characters leave the series and the stories seem to shift focus to the younger children. They also seem to re-hash themes from prior seasons. Michael Landon appears to be taking more of a back-seat role on the acting front as his character plays less and less of a feature in this season.
I like the episodes so far, but they are not as good as earlier seasons. If you have enjoyed the series as a whole, then you should enjoy season 8 as well. Just keep in mind that the stories are not as impressive as prior seasons.
