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.
