This is a fantastic series from Canada. It follows a farm ranch in the Rocky Mountains called Heartland which is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating troubled horses, and the lives of the people who live there. Think of an up to date Black Beauty / Follyfoot type of series for all the family.
This is shown in Canada peak time sunday evenings on CBC and is huge. It is already on season 5 there.
It has finally been released on dvd in this country. The Canadian region 1 dvd release is very classy with all singing and dancing menus,in a big fold out cardboard pack, however this UK region 2 release is very cheap and cheerful low budget with several mistakes and no episode titles whatsoever, just a frame from each episode and an episode number.
This is very annoying, especially on disc 5 because-
EPISODES 17 AND 18 ARE BACK TO FRONT!!!
This ruins the big build to the season finale, so watch 18 first, then 17.
Also, on the bonus features- THE SERIES IS CALLED HEARTLAND.... Not HEARTLANDS -which they spelled wrong 10 times.
All in all, however , I do recommend this series. I am totally hooked. This is one of the best shows on television. Do not think of it as a throw away kids show. It is well worth watching.
