Coming to DVD: The Waltons, Season 8

Here's some cheery DVD news for fans of classic television: Season 8 of THE WALTONS will be released on DVD next January 6th.

Isn't the cover art gorgeous? I actually had this particular still hanging in my college dorm room "back in the day." My favorite seasons of the show were those depicting the World War II era.

What's even better about this DVD release is that, as I was hoping a year ago, the 1980 special A DECADE OF THE WALTONS will be included with this set. This documentary chronicled the history of the show and the characters from THE HOMECOMING up to the time the special was filmed. The show also included interviews with Earl Hamner's family members who inspired the Walton characters.
