Highway to Heaven

By Lynn Gibson

The premiere season of Michael Landon's Highway to Heaven is consolidated into this collector’s edition box set of seven discs containing 24 episodes of faith and love. The television series (1984-1989) has a loyal following because of its compelling storylines and uplifting messages characteristic of Landon, an icon of family-friendly entertainment since the early days of Little House on the Prairie and Bonanza.

An angel on assignment from God is disguised as "everyman" Jonathan Smith in order to comfort--and sometimes miraculously guide--the lost and suffering through various dilemmas. Smith and his earthly cohort, ex-cop Mark Gordon (Victor French), journey across country to work as horse trainers, bellhops, baby-sitters--whatever the task requires. The collection leads with the two-part pilot episode that establishes Smith and Gordon's friendship. Other highlights of the collection include the two-part "Thoroughbreds" with guest star Helen Hunt as a woman who learns to risk love while battling cancer; and "Help Wanted: Angel" where Gordon is cast in a movie and falls in love with the leading lady. Especially poignant is a bonus documentary, "Michael Landon: Memories with Laughter and Love," a tribute to the prolific star including film clips and reminiscences by family members.

"Highway to Heavan was my absolute favorite show to watch when I was growing up. I am very dissapointed that they took it off the air, I haven't been able to watch it for years and I don't think that they made a videotape of all the esisodes. Michael Landon was the best and this show actually did something for my mind and in a wierd sorta way made me thankful for what I have. I don't think that shows like highway to heaven should be the only ones on TV, you have to have some action once in a while to get updated on a reality check because life just ain't like highway to heaven- there's a lot more to it. Life up here in oregon is more like Dukes of Hazzard or Rambo. I'm just thankful that I did get to see these shows when they were on aire but I wish they would come back."

--Impala Peterson

"Easily the best episode ever and perhaps the best episode of any tv show all time, has to be episode #64 "Wally." I don't know what it is about that episode, but it just shows how selfless people can be in their everyday life. Wally didnt need money or power to make a difference in a lot of lives, he just showed them that he cared about them."

--Daysleeper

"My favorite episode of HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN has to be "We Have Forever". The story is powerful and the ending has always been a good surprise to anyone who has seen it, and its one of the more romantic and touching stories of the human spirit and heart written by Michael Landon."

--Ktruelove2

"I absolutely loved Highway to Heaven. If I had to pick my favorite episode of HTH it would be "A Song for Jason." The episode was very well done and it also helped to inspire me to work with critically ill kids in hospitals."

--Melissa Morgan

"On Highway to Heaven, my favorites are "We Have Forever" and "Keep Smiling." Makes me think that anybody like the couple and no matter what age you are. I think it's a wonderful love and life. I don't know how many times I've seen these episodes. I've taped almost all of the episodes. I really wish HTH comes back and even with new casts for like maybe 'Return of HTH.' And that would be great. I wish it would be on channel 7. Because that is the only channel we have in our villiage."

--Angel Lover

"I first saw Highway to Heaven when I was a child it was one of those series that I remember so well. The stories were so good and moving I must idmit I did cry to some episodes. I live in the uk I would love to see it again to see if im right. What I can remember of it its not bad its good I highly recomend it to everyone bring it back to british tv."

--anthony

"Michael Landon was the greatest actor to ever live. "Highway To Heaven" was his best role. He made us laugh , he made us cry, and most important he taught us to love one another. Michael Landon was definately an "Earthly Angel". He was doing something possitive when the world was trying to do something negative. I know he was used in a special way. I would also like to say to the Landon family "God bless you all". "

--angel4u

""Highway to Heaven" showed warmth and caring in spite of hardships, not without them. It had God reacting in a more "hands-on" approach then she is actually able to with free will; but, in a way we wish happened. An example is the scene where the car was flipped upside down when the guy parked in the handicap spot that he didn't need.

My favorite episode though was Wally (it appears to be others as well). It didn't surprise me it was so excellent, with Michael Landon writing, producing and starring in it with Victor French and Dick Van Dyke. Talk about a great combination! That episode to me summed up all that was good about the show and all that is good about humanity."

"Being a big fan of Little House and Michael Landon Highway to Heaven was right down my alley. When Highway first appeared on tv I was in the navy and stationed aboard an aircraft carrier. Highway was one of the few television programs piped in. Watching Michael Landon and Victor French work together is always intertaining, they make a great team. There was always a moral and it sent a good message, If only those kind of shows where on for the kids today! An Angel (Michael Landon) and an ex cop team up to to help various people in need, most shows were real tear jerkers. Ill always remember Highway to Heaven and sometimes I even catch on TV these days."

"Ever since I was a young boy, I truly admired Michael Landon, and what he stood for. Though, I'm not old enough to have watched Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie in both their entire run, I enjoy them today thanks to the power of reruns. Michael Landon touched my heart in so many ways.

My favorite show that he did, by far, is Highway to Heaven. I can't tell you how much I weeped, (at time uncontrollably), at the heart-wrenching stories that came directly from Mr. Landon's own heart.

I have a lot of favorite episodes of "Highway" , i. e. , one in particular, was "Dust Child. " I was extremely touched by the story. It taught a hard lesson on the reality that prejudice plays in this world. (insert the uncontrollable sobbing here). One of my favorite scenes, is the one where Michael Landon is looking out the window, and give a beautiful "speech" on why people hate, and, that the cure to hatred is simply. . . Love!

Another favorite episode is "The Banker & The Bumb" , with Ned Beatty, playing duel roles. I enjoyed this particular episode, because it showed how it would be like to live in someone elses shoes, and to appreciate what we take for granted. This reminded me of a modern day, "The Prince & The Pauper. "

When Michael died in 1991, I was truly devastated. He proved that one man, one person can make a difference.

He will be missed!!!"

--Jason Ranne

"Michael Landon is without doubt one of the great "Class Acts" to have ever worked in tinsel-town. His troubled relationship with his mother, a verbally and mentally abusive shell of a matriarch, his constant dread that he would not be more successful than his own father, as well as his own hidden demons he tried to slay through his writing/directing/producing has led to some of the best television ever. The show featured many hollywood personalities from Sep. 84' to Aug. 89', including Eli Wallach, Ned Beatty, Dick Van Dyke, Eddie Albert, and even Ernie Borgnine. All of these stars lent their time to performing characters wrestling with moral ambiguity, " Do my choices improve my favor with God?". "Do I have to earn God's love?, Or is he obligated?".

Now picture the clothing, the cars, the look of the Awesome80s. Remember all that? Now marry that to Michael Landon dishing out God's "Tough Love" to these well developed portrayals of sinners who feel lost in God's shadow. Then like clockwork, Landon cries, everybody cries, and then BOOM!, they've learned to love again. The only thing I would add to this show would be a laugh track. Just watch for bad religeous overtones and worse acting. This show makes me laugh daily, and though I know that was never Michael's message, I hope "The Boss" and he will forgive me. Hey wait, . . they have to."

"I am not a Christian, however this show urged me to believe in the power of our selves and the power of belief. I was looking for an actor by the name of James Froesh who did a number of these shows and I remember thinking: "if he can do it (in a wheel chair) than so can I.

Years later I went to desert storm with the Corps and now that I can not walk, I remember that show. If he can, So can I.

These shows envigerate all, regardless of religion, to continue and be good, spiritual people."

--Devilpup

"I enjoyed each episode of Highway to Heaven. My most mermorable was "Thouroghbreds" starring Helen Hunt. Helen's character was the horse trainers straightforward daughter who caught the love of the wealthy Boss's son. Others I can't remember the titles to but thourougly enjoyed included one about a writer recalling his romacnce with a young girl who drowned in a boat "Jenny", a man trying to make a vet memorial to his son "Timmy", the orpaned Russian official who was reunited with his mother, the hilarious episode where Victor French was a woman, Jonathan vs. Satan I & II, the countyr singer reunites with her long lost daghter I could go on! I wish it was still on or available on DVD, VHs in it's entirity. That show is a shining example of how TV should be."
