Whoa...

This one scared the Cr*p out of me. It shows, in excruciating detail, Albert going through morphine withdrawal. Now you may be thinking, "yeah, sure, on Little House, what are they going to show?" Everything. Every once in awhile, the writers of this usually "sweet little show", turned the tables on you and totally freaked you out when you were least expecting it. As far as I can remember, the only other Little House episode that was this jarring and disturbing was one entitled "Sylvia" in Season 7 (but that's a whole other review). The writers of this episode sure weren't kidding. I saw it when I was about 16 and it has stuck in my mind ever since. If I ever seen an effective deterrent for taking drugs, this episode is it.
