However, the lazy writing is becoming so annoying that, at the end of the second season, I'm beginning to think I've had enough. I enjoyed how his past became relevant more than once. It's hard to believe how far the characters have come since the show began. Ty Borden comes to Heartland on a temporary visit and stays on as his character grows in importance. I am a horse person but I could quite easily watch the series without the horses, they are an added bonus. The stories of Heartland resonate with me in quite a different way then most of the pablum I watch on television. We will be happy and we will watch your program very Sunday night at 7pm.
I found this show totally addictive. Unfortunately i have to watch this show online because it has not aired yet here. It'll be very sad indeed when it goes off the air. Makes me want to get baby girl a pony. . He has a strong sense of family values and try's his best to keep everyone happy. Ty's character was my favorite.
The characters are lovable and the horses are amazing. I watch this with both my daughters who are 9 and 4 and they love watching it. Amber plays Amy exceedingly well because she is in real life a horse owner, rider, trainer and animal lover in real life. The actors are well chosen for the characters and are most like the description of the books. Chris Potter plays Amy's and Lou's father, an x-rodeo cowboy always looking for a make-money scheme.
I would say my one problem with the series so far is that they have not used Caleb as well as they could of. If it was really meant for youth somebody would have put a muzzle on Mallory to keep her from lying and gossiping. I like it when it snows at heartland. Make sure to come back to episode. The scenery is amazing, and it is nice watching all the different seasons and all the trials and tribulations that happen with new weather. The show just would not be the same without him. We always watching your program and it is very good interest and drama.
The series is loosely based on the Heartland books by Lauren Brooke. She says that they are dangerous!!!! Grand daughter is 2 and says horsey show mama. This show is on the verge of becoming a great show. Would love to see Calgary someday. She always has this dumb look on her face and she never closes her mouth! I look forward to the end of the season and see where they leave off, and fervently hope for a ninth season.
My next fave would have to be jack, Amy grandfather. I can't really remember too much of the books just the basic bits which is probably a good thing. We have a large number of friends and family that share our feelings and interest in the show - which makes watching it even more exciting because my daughters love going to school the next day to talk with all of their friends about what happened on the last episode. It is a long-running 'chick flick', in my wife's own words, which probably explains why I don't find anything positive about this series. Also the message Heartland and nature portrays. The United States has beautiful scenery just like Canada, in fact here in Tennessee on the Cumberland plateau we have vistas very similar except the mountain peaks are not as sharp. It seems this is the only show they watch right now, and they have seasons 1-6.
It's not like he moved and everyone back home forgot about him. There are lots of laughs surrounding jack and he is never far from a drama. They have created such a glut that horse desertion in Tennessee was at an all-time high 10 years ago. My wife likes it, but hates the women as well. The story's are gripping and leave you desperate for more. Probably a few years late, but I feel better now.
I confess this show is one of my clearly-no-longer secret pleasures. Ty Borden adds the attitude to this family-some show and it works, a bad-boy on the mend, while we, the audience are teased by the budding relationships, especially Scott and Lou. All the other characters are great too, and it is nice they constantly add new people to the show, they keep the series fresh and moving forward. I cant wait for series 6 and hope they go on to make a series 7, 8, 9 and 10. Grandfather Jack is a somewhat crusty individual who is the one everyone else turns to for advice and help in times of trouble.
