#5 looks interesting, but my bet is that #8 walks away as the favorite.

I missed the day they were showing #8, but #5 was as good as you'd imagine. That mustache-shaving scene brought a tear to my eye.

I knew you'd like #5 - for me, it was the barn-raising scene where Jebediah used his suspenders to snap-whip his son out of the way of the falling beam.

And I was right about #8 - everyone loved the climactic finish in the furniture building contest, where Obadiah and his three sons took first place with their five piece bedroom set. Awesome!
