5.0 out of 5 stars NOT included on the Complete Season sets,
By A Customer
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)This is the ONLY single disc release that is not being included on the Complete Season box sets being released by the same company. All of the 2-hour specials, etc. being released individually are also included on the box sets, but this pilot episode is not. So, if you are a Little House completist, buy this disc to add to your box set collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best show of all time!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)I wish there were shows like this still on TV today! We got this DVD for a family Christmas present a couple of years ago and we're starting to collect the whole series on DVD.
The actors are awesome, especially Michael Landon. Charles Ingalls was about the kindest, smartest, and sweetest father you'll find in any TV show or movie, ever. Karen Grassle was pretty good as his wife, Caroline Ingalls. Not all of her performances in the series are that great, but in this, the Pilot Episode, she really shines. Melissa Sue Anderson is perfect in the role of sometimes annoying, but still lovable, oldest daughter Mary. Of course, then there's Melissa Gilbert as Laura. Next to Michael Landon, she exhibited the most talent. Finally, the twins Lindsey and Sidney Greenbush play the adorable baby of the family, Carrie.
This is such a touching story, and true to boot. A family who sticks together through hard times--what could be better? One warning, though: if you see this pilot you'll find youself buying all the other Little House DVDs there are.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best pilot of all,
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)Little house on the prairie is the greatest show ever.
The pilot was not aired here in France. I know folks who had bought the VHS so I could see it. But I ordered the DVD anyway.
The quality is great, the pictures are wonderful, much more than the VHS. It is so great to hear the original voices! And funny to hear the Osage chef speaking french with such an accent! :-))
Anyway, the DVD is worth the buy, you won't be disappointed and although it is encoded region 1 ONLY, you can perfectly see it with ALL DVD player as it's written behind "zones (1-6)".
I absolutely recommend this article for all the fans and the others. It's the beginning of all, you discover the characters, you love them!
Everybody acts so well they don't look like acting. It seems that you are looking your dreamed-neighbours by the window!!
Well, buy it, even in other countries than USA, because it's not very expensive regarding its value.

5.0 out of 5 stars little house on the prairie-pilot episode,
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)I like the movie so much because it teaches very important values that could change you as a person, family, and even as a community. The movie carries heavy messages that are simply illustrated and makes it very understandable by the children. My children learn how to be thankful and appreciate the things, even the simple ones that they have but which they just took for granted before, when they saw how the Ingalls children appreciated the simle gifts that they received on Christmas. My attitude towards my husband also changed when i saw how obedient, respectful, loving and caring Caroline is towards her husband Charles. These are just some of the important values that this movie has imparted to its viewers, plus it clearly illustrates to us the way of life in the 1800's which is truly enjoyable.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love this!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)I've always loved Little House on the Prairie and my two children love watching my complete dvd collection. This video is an absolute must for any Little House fan!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode,
This review is from: Little House on the Prairie: Pilot Episode (DVD)This is the first episode and a really must have to really get to know the Ingll's family and how they came to be where they ended up, all of these books teach good basic values, I think a lot of this is missing today and that is why there is so much violence and bad things going on with the young people today.
