In Season Three, John-Boy heads off to college - and life will never be the same. Change has come to Walton's Mountain. But one thing will never change: the powerful family bond that keeps the Waltons forever together. Both topical and timeless, the third season sees the Waltons facing the age-old issues of family: holding children close and letting them go, doing without and making do.

For nine seasons from 1972 to 1981, the Walton family was America's family. Viewers' hearts were captured by the story of John and Olivia Walton, their seven children, Grandpa and Grandma as they faced the Depression and World War II with not much more than a love of the land and the rock-solid support of each other. This elegiac final season is the ideal capstone to the Emmy-honored and lovingly remembered series. The Walton boys endure terrifying dangers in Europe and the Pacific, then gratefully return to Walton's Mountain when the war ends. Peace brings new challenges, but also new beginnings and - for many of the family, young and old - new love. Share the final good night with The Waltons.

Viewers partake in many joyous celebrations with the loveable Walton's clan, during the sixth season of this poignant classic series. John Boy (Richard Thomas) comes home from New York, participates in the re-opening of the old Guthrie mine, and also proposes to Daisy Garner (Deirdre Lenihan). Another significant homecoming is that of Grandma Esther (Ellen Corby), who is finally released from the hospital into the care of her loving family. The Walton's welcome a new addition to the family when Mary Ellen (Judy Norton-Taylor) and Curt (Tom Bower) have a baby boy named John Curtis. John and Olivia celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and John discovers the family is nearly out of their debt. But the joy is fleeting when it's set against the tragedy of events in the outside world. As the fall of 1939 turns into the spring of 1940, war rages in Europe and the Waltons are soon caught in its chilling grasp. Curt is called up for duty and soldiers train on Walton property. The first local enlistee dies. British children flee the Blitz for the safety of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Depression may finally be ending but even tougher times lay ahead.

Question: True Detective is by far my new favorite show! The acting, storyline, intensity (especially last week's episode on Feb. 9) is incredible! 
I've heard that this is just a miniseries. However, with the good ratings and reviews as it is getting, any word on a possible renewal of a second season? - Mike

Matt Roush: Though it hasn't been officially renewed yet, that seems to be just a formality at this point, especially since HBO has signed the show's creator Nic Pizzolatto to a two-year deal. Which means more True Detective, although whatever happens, it will be a very different True Detective in seasons to come. Because this is one of those franchises that occupies the territory somewhere between miniseries and anthology, not unlike American Horror Story but potentially with less of a repertory ensemble feel. If/when True Detective returns, it will be with new stars, new characters, a new locale and new focus, so don't get too attached to Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, although I understand why you would be.

Premise: A popular, long-running drama about a close-knit family in rural, Depression-era Virginia, based on the experiences of series creator and narrator Earl Hamner Jr. Sentimental and often moving, the Emmy-winning series told stories of family trials, triumphs and values with great simplicity and honesty. Its genesis was a superb 1971 teleplay, 'The Homecoming: A Christmas Story,' which starred Patricia Neal. The TV-movie also featured Richard Thomas and several others who became series regulars.
