  • Starring: Kari Matchett, Danielle Nicolet, Chris William Martin
  • Summary: Everwood's Treat Williams once again plays a doctor--this time a heart transplant surgeon--in TNT's new original drama. We should warn you, though, that he's also a member of the ever-growing clique of television characters who speak to ghosts.
  • Genre(s): Drama

  1. A surprisingly effective personal drama.
  2. This is suspense that goes well beyond that of most medical shows.
  3. 63
    A mushy, messy, medical melodrama that's pretty much identical to a dozen other doctor dramas you've seen many times before.
  4. 40
    Despite “Heartland’s” obviously good intentions and Williams’ likable presence, it’s difficult to find a pulse in this workmanlike drama.
  5. Fox should send TNT the super fancy bouquet because, once again, "House" never looked so good.
  6. 30
    "Heartland" doesn't use its talent in service of anything other than predictable, inoffensive stories and a contrived relationship between the two leads.
  7. Reviewed by: Diane Werts

    [A] treacly piece of tripe.
