Jonathan Smith is a probationary angel sent back to Earth to help people. During the series' first episode, he meets embittered ex-policeman Mark Gordon (as Jonathan is walking along a little-used road, on which Mark happens to be driving). Jonathan helps reform Mark, with the grateful Mark agreeing to become Jonathan's right-hand associate in carrying out the heavenly mission. The two begin traveling the country as itinerant workers, receiving assignments from "the Boss" (God), with their mission being to deliver love, understanding and humility to the people they encountered. Typical episodes stressed moral, Christian themes; though many episodes dealt with common human failings, such as egotism, bitterness and greed, some shows addressed such topics as racism and cancer. A few shows, however, were played mainly for laughs (such as Landon recreating his first famous starring role in a takeoff of his 1957 film I Was a Teenage Werewolf). Written by

Victor French's final TV series. It has often been written that Michael Landon decided to end the series after French died of lung cancer. In fact, it had already been agreed in June 1988 that the series would end because of falling ratings. See more »
If any classic drama is worth watching again and again, this is that show
I was only a child when "Highway" aired in first-run, so I barely remember watching it then, and it deserves to be on DVD, even if the entire run doesn't get released. Fortunately, the episodes never released on DVD are available on YouTube (as well as the rest of the series) Thank goodness for YouTube. Even the theme song is worth listening to over and over again. It's a shame this show only lasted 5 seasons (actually, 4 and a half, to be precise). Even if Landon and French never became ill, the ratings would have killed the show anyway, so I guess it wouldn't mattered one way or another. Notable famous guest stars: Robert Culp, Ed Asner, James Earl Jones, Moses Gunn, Helen Hunt, Leslie Nielsen, Barry Williams, Paul Walker, Richard Farnsworth, Darren McGavin, Bill Erwin, Ned Beatty, Dick Van Dyke, Chad Allen.
