Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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. (Ages 8 and older) --Lynn Gibson

Product Description

Jonathan Smith isn't your average helpful handyman. He's an angel with a mission from God, or "the Boss" as he likes to call him. Accompanied by ex-cop Mark Gordon, whose troubled life Jonathan once helped turn around, he travels the world, guiding the lost and suffering back toward the HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN. Whether helping a young boxer pressured to throw a fight or a veteran's Eurasian daughter feel welcome in America, Jonathan finds a way to bring a little grace and love into the lives of those he touches. And when necessary, he helps things along with a little angel power. Starring Michael Landon and Victor French, all 24 uplifting episodes from the first season of this family favorite are now available on DVD for the first time. DVD Features: Feature-Length Documentary "Michael Landon: Memories with Laughter and Love"; Rare Outtakes;Text Biographies of Michael Landon and Victor French; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

4.0 out of 5 stars To Earn My Wings April 3, 2005
By Ned

"Highway to Heaven" is one of my all-time favorite television programs so I was pleased to learn about the DVD release of Season One. Michael Landon and Victor French shared a great friendship as Jonathan and Mark and their scenes together are priceless. It's too bad that many of them have been cut from this collection as these are the syndicated episodes of "Highway to Heaven".

I have two of these episodes on old VHS tapes. When they aired on NBC-TV, the episode "Going Home, Going Home" was approximately two minutes longer than its DVD counterpart; "Another Song for Christmas" was approximately three minutes longer. Think about this: If each show is missing between two to three minutes and you multiply this by the season total of 24 episodes, you get the equivalent of one missing hour of programming! And for the most part, the scenes dropped are those memorable buddy moments between Jonathan and Mark.

The syndicated episodes of "Highway to Heaven" closed with a tag for Genesis Entertainment. On the back cover of the DVD box is a logo for Genesis International. It would seem, presumably, that these are the same entity.

All I can say regarding this DVD set is that I'm glad I kept my 20 year old VHS copies of "Highway to Heaven". I have scenes that others will NEVER see and that's unfortunate. Mr. Landon's work was the best thing that ever happened to television and it should also be the best thing that ever happened to TV on DVD. Perhaps the powers that be will release a COMPLETE season two with a bonus feature containing all the missing scenes from season one. Now that's a collection that would earn FIVE stars! I'll be waiting for it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Edited episodes suck! August 29, 2010
Format:DVD
Grew up watching this show with my family and love it! (Same with Little House)

It is a great shame that A&E (and Genesis Entertainment) released the edited versions which are chopped up and have anywhere from 30 sec to as much as 3 min of scenes missing per episode! And they inserted commercial breaks where they were not intended. To make matters worse A&E has only released the first 3 seasons and there are, from what I can find, no plans to release seasons 4 and 5. This is terrible. What will it take to release all the original episodes unedited and all seasons on DVD?! I know fans will pay for it if they'd just give us a chance! Fans DO NOT BUY THESE DVDS - if they see people aren't buying this bastardized version they may finally release the full unaltered episodes and all 5 seasons. Please correct this travesty :(

5.0 out of 5 stars First Little House, then Highway To Heaven, Landon rocks. December 14, 2005
Format:DVD
If anyone can pull off being an Angel on television is Charles Ingalls, err, I mean Michael Landon. Charles Ingalls from Little House, or Johnothan Smith from Highway To Heaven. He was amazing in both roles, but I really like the thought of Landon being an Angel and Highway To Heaven is the way to go from that standpoint! Landon inspired us all as being being the most inspirational father (Charles Ingalls) on the beloved Little House on the Prairie series. But thankfully after the "New Beginning" aired, he decided to take his talents to his own show, Highway To Heaven. Make no mistake, this series rocks. Landon always seem to have a spirit that brings the heart home and mangages to tearjerk my girlfriend everytime he goes on-screen. Victor French along for the ride is just the icing on the cake for the series as the both of them seem to mesh as they did so well on Little House.

Landon's talents are endless as he proved for years. As he did with Little House, he wrote, produced, directed and of course acted throughout Highway to Heaven as playing an angel to help people. While some of the stories are a bit iffy, it strives with wonderful acting, tearjerks throughout and of course Landon is just fun to watch as being the perfect Angel sent down from heaven to help people cope with their problems. While I was still very young when this series started in the 80's, I'm not aware of the edits and cuts they made for the DVD collection. But nonetheless, this is great stuff and Landon is the perfect Angel and I wish stuff like this was still on TV. This is something I want my kids to watch, and knowing this is Landon before he dies, it's just that much more touching to the heart.
