The Waltons is a 1970's TV series that is still relevant today. It's relevance is that it depicts the moral and social expectations of rural USA in the 1930's-family roles and economic priorities and childrens' roles. Whether the 1970's changes in family structure and the social events were played out by the television writers is beyond my scope to comment, The Waltons TV show is a door for discussion and thought with current generations.

Much of the shows of the 70's focused on large families, Post WW or current they covered various struggles and some humor, void of profanity or sexual scenes. It is a classic show that is loved The Homecoming is still my favorite growing up watching the Walton's on Sunday evenings Maybe big networks would revive big family theme shows . Nice change from the current

family show set in the mountains of Virginia in pre and post WW2. A show I grew up on and have watched with my own children. It may well be 'out of date', 'out of style', etc., but still a great watch.
