  • I think this is an excellent show which fairly and closely represents the world of organ donation and receiving organs.

    This show is wonderful! As a lung recipient myself, I am so pleased that someone finally is doing a show about this subject, and doing it well. I must admit that I am a huge Treet Williams fan, and have become a fan of every major player in this series. Organ donation is a very touchy subject and one which many folks are frankly afraid of because it's not talked about in most settings. Besides being a great learning tool, it's very good entertainment. I really hope it comes back next season with a full 13 shows. I, for one, will much miss it if it goes.moreless

    Well I must admit that I only started watching this because Treat Williams was in this and I'm still upset that they canned Everwood. I will say it's not even close to the caliber of Everwood BUT ..I have not watched it enough to get hooked either..so that may be an unfair statement. I will point out some of the uncanny similarities between heartland and Everwood. Once again Treat is the HERO physician ( as in EW) he is single with a teen who he just doesn't understand, Most of his meaningful conversations come from a diner with an elder (but retired) surgeon. All as in EW. I'm enjoying noticing these similarities and maybe some of you have noticed others that I haven't yet. I guess I'm just having a hard time getting "INTO" the series and am probably apprehensive for fear of THIS getting canned as well. I have 5 episodes on DVR saved that I haven't watched yet and came on here to find out if the show already got axed because it quit taping. To my delight found out the shows season just ended WHEW!!moreless
  • A true medical show that is reaching out to help people understand how to save lives. This show is a one of a kind.

    The vast majority of people usually lack in knowledge about organ-transplants and the importance of donating organs. What makes this show so unique and valuable above every other hospital show is it's ability to not only entertain with high quality performances by top actors and actress's with high standard scripts, is also the sensitive and delicate way it deals with and teaches about organ-transplants, life and death. Heartland demonstrates with compassion and honesty by being an example with a strong medical staff that team together to make a difference in such a frank way that each week we are drawn into the show with a deeper understanding of the fine lines between these such topics. As in reality not every patient will survive and Doctors have to show wisdom and maturity with every decision they make. In my opinion this is one of the top medical/hospital shows on TV and it has surpassed previous or on-going shows in various ways. There are some hospital series that shoot right pass the real issues extremely too much but Heartland is a show that takes responsibility for precious issues of present and future, and they are devoted to telling the truth no matter how hard or difficult it may be. By repeatedly learning about organ-donation weekly in such a sensitive instructive manner, viewers will know more than they ever have in their lifetime. This show is making a true difference for the future of lives.moreless
  • I will be really upset if this show is canceled.

    I just love this show! It started out as my summer Greys Anatomy replacement, but now I don't want it to end. I look forward to Monday nights again. My boyfriend and I are both really into it. The characters personalities keeps growing, the music is great, and the storyline is very attention getting. I can't wait to see the relationships evolving every week to deeper and multisided dimensions. I miss Dabney Colemans character, and I am hoping to see him again, perhaps showing himself in spirit form to Dr. Grant. This show is actually, in my opinion, educating people of the benefits and satisfaction of organ donation. It has the potential to benefit many people and save many lives.moreless
  • TNT shoots … and completely misses the basket.

    6.0
    For a show with a decent enough gimmick that looked like it could have had some potential on paper, “Heartland” sure turned out to be a gigantic pile of manure. Treat Williams (Everwood) returns to television in a show that tries hard to be like both “ER” and “Grey’s Anatomy” … and ends up failing to emulate either. Terrible dialogue and pathetically developed characters really made it hard for me to sit through even one episode of this “fresh” medical drama set in the world of heart-transplant surgery. It’s also really hard to decide whether the show is plagued by incredibly weak storylines … or just plain nonexistent ones. Either way, this isn’t exactly an Emmy Award-winning drama.moreless
