Michael Landon (Little House on the Prairie) and Victor French (Gunsmoke) star in this family favorite hit series Highway to Heaven! Jonathan Smith (Landon) isn't your average helpful handyman. He's an angel on a mission from God, or "the Boss" as he likes to say. Accompanied by ex-cop Mark Gordon (French), whose troubled life Jonathan once helped turn around, the two travel the country, guiding the lost and suffering back toward the Highway to Heaven! Whether helping a young boxer pressured to throw a fight or a veteran's Eurasian daughter feel welcome in America, Jonathan finds a way to bring grace and love into the lives of those he touches. And when necessary, he helps things along with a little angel power!
Michael Landon's Little House
follow-up, Highway to Heaven
, first came out on DVD in 2005. That first season set came in a big, bulky box at a high cost, and even among those who were all right with that it still wasn't well received because the episodes were edited-down versions. As a result, the follow-up releases of the show's second and third seasons were spurned by fans, and the final two seasons never did see the light of day on disc. But now our friends at Mill Creek Entertainment are changing all of that!
Today Mill Creek has announced the May 14th
release of Highway to Heaven - The Complete 1st Season
, a 5-DVD set containing - in their own words - "The Complete Uncut Original Broadcasts of all 25 Season 1 Episodes
