Show Summary

Highway to Heaven was Micheal Landon's second pairing with Victor French (the two both starred on Little House on the Prairie). This show was about Jonathan Smith, an angel sent down by God, aka "The Boss," to partner up with ex-Oakland cop Mark Gordon. They would be assigned duties by the Boss in which they would help people see a better life, and sometimes help each other. The show ran for 5 years on NBC. Each episode began with clips of that episode. Then the sky would fill with a heavenly shot of clouds. The clouds would fade away, and the soothing theme music would begin to play, and the highway to heaven was open to all. The show ran for a seemingly short five seasons and is shown today in reruns on the Goodlife TV Network (Monday through Friday 1 p.m. EST and 7 p.m. EST) (Also, it will show on TVLand, every day at 8pm EST.

  • Where did Highway to Heaven go??

    I am absolutely HOOKED on Highway to Heaven! FETV must have dropped it? I cannot find it on any channel. The TV I watch it on does not have a DVD player so buying the CD program does not solve the problem. happened FETV???
  • Great show, Great message

    My children (ages 12 and 13) currently watch this program on FETV. We love this show because of the faith and morals displayed. We were fans of Little House so we naturally took to watching Victor French and Michael Landon on this program. I do not remember watching this as a child but I am glad I have found it now. This program opens the door for questions and communication about difficult issues.

    Both Michael Landon and Victor French did an excellent job in this series and are missed as individuals and as actors.moreless
  • Amazing show that should NOT be missed! Make it a family night!

    FANTASTIC series with bold definition of morals and religion. Some episodes can be a little heavy for children as some matters discussed are more understood by adults or young teens (racism, illness, divorce, adultry, death, drugs, gangs etc) However the show does provide solid rolemodlels and "lessons". Jonathan Smith (Landon) is an angel sent to earth to help people in need. Being an angel, he's a great example of the 'ideal' human being and in that way is a great character to look up to. He's NOT, however entirely perfect, and in some episodes makes mistakes or is left with a challenging situation of whats wrong and whats right. Mark Gordan (French) is Jonathan's human friend who goes along helping him with 'assigniments' from the boss (God). Mark is a fantastic character, as he is human and makes plenty of mistakes than Jonathan *highlights* for the viewer to recognize. All in all, its a faboulous show that should not be missed!moreless
  • "The Whole Nine Yards" 4/27/1988

    Highway to Heaven: "The Whole NIne Yards" (1988) This episode is with Chad Allen; and, myself. This is THE best acting job I ever had. I wanted to thank Chad Allen for being a great acting partner in this episode. And, Mr Landon, you were the coolest. It was an absoutute honor working with you.

    Whoever does not believe :) I don't care :)
  • Bring It Back in Michael Landons Honor !

    As a Christian I have to say I also loved watching Highway To Heaven. It was a show that I watched all the time and I would continue to watch if it was still playing new episodes, even though Michael Landon was the Best.There must be someone out there that could play this part good in Honor of him. I was so disappointed when they took it off the air. They need to bring it back on the air, like I said with a new actor in Michaels Honor. It was one of the GREATEST shows ever and I really enjoyed watching it. I try to catch the reruns when I can, but it's just not the same as when you watch a newly released episode. I miss watching it and was really disappointed when it was taken off the air, not to mention that the show had a lot of inspirational points and stories that touched me and I'm sure it touched many others as well. And had some great lessons for everyone in it. Please put it back on the air in Michaels Honor.moreless
