My Thoughts:
Highway to Heaven was my favorite television series to watch with my dad during the 80's, and still is to this day when he comes to visit, as we can watch reruns on television, or put on a DVD from one of the first three seasons, which Mill Creek Entertainment has released.  The Highway to Heaven series aired for 5 series, and had a total of 111 episodes -- and my dad and I watched all the episodes countless times over the years.
When I was recently sent the Season 3 DVD to review, I was quickly reminded that Paul Walker, who recently passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash and was launched to stardom with the Fast and Furious franchise movies, guest starred in a Highway to Heaven episodes.  And, this new season release contains that particular episode.  It was surreel watching the young Paul Walker on the television scene, knowing that his life was cut way to short, and that he had so much potential to be a great actor, which can be seen in the following clip from Highway to Heaven:

Did you grow up watching Highway to Heaven?  Not only was I a fan of Michael Landon, but I loved the wholesome family story lines.  Some people thought that this television series was religious, but I didn't think so.  Yes, it was about an angel -- but it was more about helping others and doing the right thing.  I continue to enjoy watching some of my favorite episodes from Highway to Heaven, now that it is available to own on DVD.  And, I will definitely be watching from the remaining two seasons to be released from Mill Creek Entertainment.  In the meantime, my dad and I will enjoy quality time when he comes to visit, as we watch and reminisce of our time spent together watching this television series during my youth.

  1. I used to watch this show as much as I could. I really miss Michael Landon he made the best shows. I really can't stand what is on television these days and try not to watch it. Thanks for the great review.
