5.0 out of 5 stars Great family entertainment 10 April 2012
Format:DVD
In many respects, Highway to Heaven is more poignant today than at the time of its initial broadcast. Michael Landis plays the Angel guide, helping people with their troubles and saving tortured souls in a world themed by corruption and malevolence.
The occasional episode spills into over sentimentality, however most are well crafted and deliver a moral (not just religious) message to warm the cockles of the severest cynics.

Landon, who created and owned the show, hired crew who had terminal illnesses or were disabled, adding poignancy to the storylines and a genuine atmosphere on set. Cancer was to eventually strike Landon in 1991, and in the final season of the show co-star Victor French succumbed to the illness as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remember! 25 Jun 2012
By Mr. J. W. Mc Evoy VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's been a long time since i've watched this program, 15 years i'd say. One thing I can say is it's just like I remember, just as heart warming. Michael Landon stars as Jonathan Smith, an angel sent to earth to help those in need find their way. Not as preachy as it sounds believe me. Each episode is infused with a great story and a moral to accompany it.

It ran for 5 seasons, finishing in 1989 shortly after co-star Victor French who plays police officer Mark Gordon died of lung cancer. Most believed that Michael Landon decided to end the series after Victor French's death, but by the fifth season the ratings began to fall, and most agreed that the show had run it's course.

All good things must come to an end. Just enjoy the journey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wholesome 22 Nov 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is great, wholesome and mostly charming family entertainment.
The good guys win, the bad guys change heart or lose and it makes for terrific family viewing.
Do be aware though, that one or two of the episodes deal with very difficult issues and thus are a bit tough for younger children. However, there is a synopsis at the start of each, so you can decide which is appropriate for your family to see.
On the whole, there's plenty in this series to make the whole family feel good - real good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Joe Returns. 28 Aug 2012
By Brian VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Many people will remember Michael Landon, from Bonanza ,and Little House On The Prairie. He's back in this series as an apprentice angel, who is trying to help people with their problems, and learn a bit more about compassion himself.I actually didn't watch the series when it was shown on tv in the eighties, and so this wasm all new to me. This Season One package comprises of seven discs , with twenty four episodes. The picture , and sound quality , are both excellent , and English subtitles are available. The stories are interesting , and varied , and although first shown in 1984, they don't seem too dated. The acting is good, and 'Highway To Heaven',stands up well against other series which feature angels helping people here on Earth,which appeared later like 'Touched By An Angel'. Also, I feel that 'Quantom leap',wouldn't be with us, if there had been no,'Highway To Heaven'.So this was somewhat of a trailblazing concept,as such.
I would thoroughly recommend,'Highway To Heaven',for all the family to view together - this is good family entertainment.

By Keith_Joseph HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Highway to Heaven Season One set is a real hit with my 18 year old daughter, and she has already bought the newly released Season Two and Season Three UK sets. Michael Landon's as likeable on-screen as ever, and the series seems well suited to secondary schoolkids & young adults who will appreciate its moral clarity. We got the set for my daughter, who likes it and other old TV programs & films like 'Bewitched', '7 Brides for 7 Brothers', and 'Calamity Jane'. My daughter's review of Highway to Heaven: "It's so sad, but it's so sweet, and the other bits made me laugh ... it's really good though." We thought the show has aged quite well, probably as none of the issues covered have gone away, its storylines weren't always predictable, and when required the series didn't pull its punches.

The series stars Michael Landon as Jonathan Smith, an Angel sent down to earth to do good and so win his wings. He soon finds a human companion soulmate in ex-cop Mark Gordon, played by Victor French, Landon's co-star from Little House on the Prairie. In a similar manner to 'Quantum leap', Jonathan and Mark are given missions by God (The Boss) to advise and help those in trouble overcome their problems and get back on track. It was filmed mostly in California, with the memorable Mark picking up Jonathan sequence set in Tucson, Arizona - the home of Bonanza, Landon's first major TV series break and one of my childhood faves.
