Heartland Review: Is it Worth Your Precious Viewing Time?


About.com Rating 4.5 Star Rating


This fast-paced medical series centers around a workaholic transplant surgeon (Williams) and the various suffering relationships in his life, including the strained relationship with his ex-wife.

Was it worth your precious viewing time?

If you've loved series such as ER and Grey's Anatomy, you're going to love this medical series. While the other successful medical series have touched on the topic of organ donation, Heartland delves right into the lives of both the recipients and the family members who must make the agonizing decision to donate their loved ones organs. As I watched the pilot, there was one scene that actually made me stop the DVD and have the organ donation talk with my husband. I can't think of one series that has ever made discuss lifesaving decisions. The series hits close to home and tugs at those heartstrings!
