Just not enough

Sadly, as I watch this, I reflect on the fact that most of my "favorite shows" (which includes movies) were, at their core, merely "revenge porn."

Wife and I are watching Little House on the Prairie, I think we're halfway through season 2 now.  Last night's episode was when the Oleson's got a recording device.  Nellie used it to surreptitiously record Laura saying she liked this classmate, and then Nellie played it for the class, Laura got embarrassed, and ran out.

Next day, arriving in class there was a heart with arrow through it and "James loves Laura" inside the heart.  Schoolchildren were giggling.  I said to my wife, "I bet he wrote it."  Schoolteacher asked the class who wrote it, and after a moment of silence -- James stood up and said he had written it!  I know I watched these as a child, but I think we started several seasons in; I don't remember a hand-cranked wax cylinder.  So that's really neat that I thought it was him.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is: there doesn't seem to be much of a revenge theme in Little House.  Somewhat, because as a child I hated Nellie, and as an adult, I can see how her behavior has been influenced by her mother, and not at all by her father.  Who, in this episode, started laying down the law, so it'll be interesting to see how it continues...

Anywayx2, if I was stuck on a desert island I'd rather have Little House with me than pretty much anything else.  Not to mention, because it also has lots of homesteading info in it.
P-p-p-pedovores: we're c-c-c-coming to k-k-k-kill you!  Yeah3  (Paraphrased from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgJvgESR920 )
