Day 4 – a Favorite Television Program
I’ve gone back and forth as to what my answer is going to be, but I have decided to answer with the show I have always loved, and which can make my heart skip a beat with joy when I hear that it is on.
Little House on the Prairie.
I wore the books out so much that the covers came off, and sometimes, some of the pages in the back. So it’s natural that I should like this show so much.
The other day my Uncle was in town and was quizzing us on episodes, and I think that we knew the answers to all of his questions.
We don’t watch a lot of current shows on TV, (I’ve never seen a complete episode of American Idol, The Bachelor, CSI, NCIS, Lost, The Office, and many other shows like these) and I don’t care! I prefer my Little House on the Prairie. Thankfully all of my siblings like it too, although if you ask them right now what their favorite show is, they’ll probably say either Andy Griffith, or the A-Team.
I am a big fan of the books, but I don’t mind that they completely and utterly destroy their plot with the show. It’s okay, I just view it like it’s almost another family.
I personally love Caroline Ingalls and her strong faith, and her love for her family. She can do almost anything, and she is full of wisdom, but she is also ver real in that we often see her stressed, overwhelmed, and scared, just as real moms are. I shouldn’t say to much, because I’ll probably use her for a “Character Friday” one of these days.
And then of course, you have the other characters, like I said, I don’t mind that they changed details, so the fact that they added three children the Ingalls never had isn’t a problem for me.
All in all, a great show about community, family, faith, character,perseverance in the face of trail, and doing the right thing.
