7th Heaven: Season 1

Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Created by Barbara Hampton (Blossom) and produced by Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Seventh Heaven premiered on the WB in 1996 and would become its most enduring hit. It may lack a gimmick, but this heartwarming family drama doesn't lack a theme: communication. And since the Camdens are a minister's family, faith comes up often, as well, which gives the show something in common with such otherwise disparate programs as Touched by an Angel and Joan of Arcadia. Throughout 1996-1997, the Camdens would deal with many tough issues, both internal and external, including teen pregnancy ("Family Secrets"), death ("In the Blink of an Eye"), racism ("The Color of God"), spousal abuse ("What Will People Say"), and alcoholism ("Last Call for Aunt Julie"). In the years to come, the cast would have their own real-life issues with which to contend, such as Watson's battle with cancer (after taking 2003 off to recover, he would return in 2004) and the gradual loss of Biel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) to the movies. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Second: This show is a family show, made for families, meant for families. Others can obviously watch, but I believe the main purpose of the show was to give family's something wholesome to watch together, something that address's some serious issues but doesn't always provide all the answers for the issues...and sometimes it does provide answers.
Third: Regarding the characters dialogue being older (more mature) than the character it may belong to. I agree with that. Sometimes there really doesn't seem to be any real difference between alot of the characters dialogue. At times, Ruthie (the youngest daughter) can say something extremely wise and mature, way past her years, something maybe her Teacher or Father wouldn't even know. The same with Simon or any of the other kids for that matter. Alot of the times the most irresponsible of teenagers in the show will display the most responsible attitude and or philosophy. But that being said, I don't necessarily think that that is a bad thing. I think it's actually pretty good (a tad annoying at times), but good none-the-less because I believe it can strike a cord with a viewer of the same age level of the speaker.Read more ›
Re-runs don't "re-run" exactly in order most of the time so if the DVD of all the seasons was released I could watch whenever I wanted. It's not like its hard to put it out on DVD because it's not. And, it's not like it wouldn't make any money because it would. So, if you can give me one good reason that "7th Heaven" shouldn't be released I would like to see. When I first started watching "7th Heaven" I didn't really plan to watch it again or to try not to miss an episode. But, later when nothing else good was on T.V. I watched "7th Heaven" and fell in love with everything about it, the characters, the actors, the storyline, the set, and everything else. If I could only say one thing to everyone who made "7th Heaven" such a great long-running show it would be "THANKS!!!" The show has taught me much and some think its "cheesy" but I don't. I know how hard all those people worked and continue to work to make this show what it is today. Please do whatever you can to get this great show called
"7th Heaven" get on DVD!!!!!! Thank you for reading my "review" that's not really a review.
