But the episode Hallmark Channel showed yesterday made me wonder if this was when they "Jumped The Shark", so to speak.
It was the one where Elizabeth kept seeing wierd things happen, like rocks and chairs floating around, and the radio getting all static-y when she came near it.
I thought they would show that it was all in her imagination, and they did hint at that during the episode, until I saw the end where everyone saw the stuff happening, and they seemed to explain it more as a manifestation of Elizabeth's "feelings" during puberty. It was like a scene from Poltergeist.

It was the first time since I started watching The Waltons, that I saw a really unrealistic episode. My respect for that show went down a couple notches when I saw that one.

I like this episode quite a bit. I like how The Walton's had some spooky episodes. Like with the one with the Ouija board.

Earl Hamner Jr. had written for The Twilight Zone, so an episode like that I guess shouldn't be too surprising...!

I have a preference for the early years of The Waltons, as the production values on Season 1 in particular are just outstanding. But the later years have their advantages, like seeing Mary McDonough in full bloom as Erin!
