I’ve hit an age where I look at specific television shows and movies and think to myself, “How could that have come out so long ago?” The 40th anniversary of “Little House on the Prairie” is celebrated through the release of the second season of the beloved series on Blu-ray for the first time ever. All 22 episodes are fully restored to broadcast length for the “Little House on the Prairie:” Season Two Blu-ray.
Season Two of the series is packed full of action, excitement, drama, suspense, and humor. Charles Ingalls is forced to take on different jobs to pay off his debt. His entire family shows their support by helping to earn the money they need. Meanwhile, Mary becomes the talk of the town as she reveals her mathematical gift. A sick widow taking care of three children catches Charles’ eye and he rushes to her rescue. The nation’s centennial is cause for a great celebration and the Ingalls hit the town to show their patriotism.
The deluxe remastered edition of the “Little House on the Prairie:” Season Two Blu-ray is presented in 1080p High Definition with English 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio. The picture is fully restored and looks better than it ever has before. It also includes Spanish and French 2.0 Dolby Digital Audio and English SDH.
The Blu-ray release of “Little House on the Prairie:” Season Two doesn’t have much in the way of bonus material. A 15-minute featurette entitled “The ‘Little House’ Phenomenon Part Two – In the Beginning” continues where the last edition left off on the Season One Blu-ray. It includes interviews with the children of Ed Friendly and Michael Landon.
The “Little House on the Prairie:” Season Two Blu-ray will thrill families looking for something wholesome and exciting to watch together. There aren’t very many shows coming out anymore that cater to parents and their children sitting down together to enjoy a relaxing night of television. “Little House on the Prairie” can definitely help fill that gap.
