  • Summary: Protestant minister Eric Camden and his wife Annie have always had their hands full caring for seven children, not to mention the friends, sweethearts, spouses, and other visitors that continually come and go in their home. When the series premiered in 1996, Eric and Annie were young parentsProtestant minister Eric Camden and his wife Annie have always had their hands full caring for seven children, not to mention the friends, sweethearts, spouses, and other visitors that continually come and go in their home. When the series premiered in 1996, Eric and Annie were young parents with three teenagers, one middle-schooler, and a pre-kindergartner. Then, when an unexpected pregnancy hit the Camdens at the end of Season 2, the birth of their twin boys brought the total number of offspring to seven. Eleven full years of "7th Heaven" gave audiences the opportunity to follow this fictional television family through various seasons of life: adolescence, marriage, parenthood, and all the good and bad decisions that come in-between. Over a decade of filming meant that the characters grew and changed tremendously over time, but from the pilot episode to the series finale, one thing remained constant: they were a tight-knit, loving, and generous family that strived to practice their Christian values both inside and outside the home.

    It's one of those prehistoric kind of shows that is heartwarming and wholesome, that made me chuckle with the family and even cry. [26 Aug 1996]

    It's all very contemporary Waltons — usually huggy at the end of the hour but with enough quirks to keep you intrigued.

    This is one of the best shows I have every watched. I love how together the family is, I wish my family was like that. This show is easy toThis is one of the best shows I have every watched. I love how together the family is, I wish my family was like that. This show is easy to get addicted to due to its loving family nature, and I started finding myself getting proud of all the children's accomplishments. I began watching the show on TV when I was around twelve, it was the later seasons. The again at fifteen, and I just started watching it again. I love how this show talks about sex, drugs, gangs and peer pressure in a realistic way and shows the consequences. I love that though the siblings fight they always makes up and have each others backs, that's how siblings should be. I also love how each of the children find their own path that is not identical to their parents or siblings. I also love how some of the children got and stayed on the wrong path instead of everyone getting on the right path in the end because this is more realistic. Expand

    If you want an hour-long show that insults your intelligence and makes you question your value system, this is the show for you. RecentIf you want an hour-long show that insults your intelligence and makes you question your value system, this is the show for you. Recent Stephen Collins controversy aside, this is probably one of the worst shows ever to be put to broadcast. Intertwining messages of God without actually saying Jesus' name for 99.9% of the show is just the tip of the iceberg. Its messages are often contradictory and warped. The show's writing is unrealistic, the plots laughable, and the acting was either bland or just (pardon the pun) god-awful, even by TV standards. The show's characters were probably the worst put to screen (special mention to Lucy and Annie Camden). The parents can hardly be considered "good" - they were either crazy and hypocritical (Annie) or blatantly condescending or ignorant (Eric). The kids weren't much better being self-righteous (Matt), flighty (Mary), doormats (Lucy), whiny (Simon), annoying (Ruthie), and straight up creepy (the twins; god, the twins!). If this is the family that America fell in love with for OVER A DECADE, this means that family systems in our country are sorely lacking (at least for the time). This family is nothing more than stereotypes meant to invoke the glory days, and sorely disappoints anyone who wants actual good drama. The reason why I didn't give this show a straight zero was because this show had (very rare) moments of emotion, and enough said about that.
    P.S. Play this show for your kids when they're awful, not as an award.
