Critic Reviews

  1. Fox should send TNT the super fancy bouquet because, once again, "House" never looked so good.
  2. It is every organ transplant storyline you've ever seen before on "ER" or "Chicago Hope" or elsewhere, told in the most unimaginative fashion possible, acted out by a competent group of actors not given much to play.

    "Heartland" doesn't use its talent in service of anything other than predictable, inoffensive stories and a contrived relationship between the two leads.
  4. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    In terms of concocting drama, the characters and situations don't strike sharply enough to break the skin, much less stir the heart.
  5. Reviewed by: Diane Werts

    [A] treacly piece of tripe.
  6. There's no reason to sugarcoat this: Watching Williams made me want to nod off.

    good cast, ok show. I do like the fact that they are not 100% successful.
