Such a frustrating disappointment
Simply A Masterpiece
Highly Overrated But Still Good
I have just finished watching Season 10 on Netflix and am going to start watching again from the beginning for the third time. That is how much I enjoy this show. Jack and Tim are great characters and the actors who portray them, Shaun Johnston and Chris Potter respectively, bring the characters to life with masterful performances. Chris Potter is the best actor in the series. His portrayal of Tim is nuanced and complex and takes what could have been a two dimensional character and gives us a complicated, flawed, funny, and lovable man. The Ty and Amy thread is the center of the series but other characters are woven in and out adding depth to the show. I would give this a 10 except that the character of Lou is just too flawed for me to like. Whereas Tim's flaws are compelling and complex, Lou's flaws are irritating and downright silly at times. That said, this is a beautiful show for those who like character driven stories, horses, and gorgeous scenery from western Canada. If you are looking for a wholesome, almost old fashioned type of show, then give this a try.
Such a breath of fresh air ! I want to be adopted by the Heartland family ... your stories, your trials your joys your heartaches we live them with you. Gosh o gee Oooomighty ! Love love love ya!
I tend to love shows like CSI, True Blood, Sex and the City.....you get the idea. I accidentally watched an episode while getting my nails done and I immediately came home and found it on Netflix.
Great story, great characters in a gorgeous setting. I'm hooked!
I like the show but I'm only in season 4 and I have to wonder if the writers know how annoying Lou, Tim, and Amy are. I can't stand Lou. She is a whiny selfish brat who only thinks of herself. There's not one single episode where I don't want to smack her. Tim is quite the selfish swindling jerk himself. Like father, like daughter. And Amy is slightly better, but her holier than thou attitude is hard to swallow sometimes. Just had to get that off my chest.
