Review

Our Score
This beautifully realised drama reunites the original cast of the beloved American TV series. It's now 1970, and reporter John-Boy Walton (Richard Thomas) and his pregnant spouse return to the Blue Ridge Mountains to help commemorate his parents' (Ralph Waite, Michael Learned) 40th wedding anniversary. As the clan plans a party, Ma and Pa just want to slip away to Virginia Beach. Meanwhile John-Boy begins to yearn for the simple country life but his wife can't wait to get back to New York City. Yes, it's sentimental and sweet but it doesn't hurt to see a little caring and sharing for a change.
