TV Shows - Highway to Heaven

Highway to Heaven is an American television drama series which ran on NBC from 1984 to 1989. It starred Michael Landon as Jonathan Smith, an angel sent down to earth "on probation", and his human companion Mark Gordon, played by Victor French. Jonathan and Mark are given "assignments" by "The Boss" (God) where they are required to use their humanity (and sometimes a little bit of "The Stuff") in order to help various troubled souls to overcome their problems. Examples of these problems include families dealing with sick loved ones, wealthy and greedy businessmen being encouraged to use their wealth for good, and discouraging prejudice in regards to people of different ethnicities/appearances/socioeconomic backgrounds or who have disabilities. While dealing with these situations with sensitivity, Highway to Heaven also utilised humour - particularly between Jonathan and Mark, who would often goad each other. Jonathan's mission on Earth was to do enough good so that he could 'earn his wings' and presumably, ascend to heaven. Due to the close relationship that builds between Jonathan and Mark, this becomes a contentious issue as Mark doesn't want to lose his friend to "The Boss", and sometimes tries to prevent it from happening. Although French appeared as an old man, he was in fact less than two years older than Landon. The third popular Michael Landon television vehicle (after Bonanza and Little House on the Prairie), it consisted of 111 episodes produced over five seasons.

1 Oh I remember this show! My mother loved it. It was so pious I had blood coming from my wrists and feet. I was not a fan, this was all too cheesy for my taste. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:07 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
