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!
Warmly remembered as Little Joe, he went on to "Little House", some very good TV movies, and then this consummate series.
I remember our daughter of round 10 crying each Saturday evening when these were on. I must confess that I rarely saw them through at the time so can't comment on those reviewers who vow that the episodes here miss one or two minutes.
We are watching them now and find them absolutely marvellous, tear-inducing but ultimately very uplifting. The sound seems a little low-cut; we have to have the volume up more than, say, for series like the "Invaders" and the "Fugitive".
It's been said so many times before: why oh why can't they make these quality shows now? At least we can ignore the tide of trashy filth by watching these DVDs instead but we should all worry for the future.
We bless you Michael from here in the UK, your legacy is guaranteed.
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.Read more ›
