'The Heights' is not only the name of the suburb a group of young adults lives in, it's also the name of the rock band they've set up. During its 12 episodes, the show tells partly comedian, partly serious and melancholy about relations, crises and important events in the lives of the young people. Each shows features a song of the band. Written by

Oh man, this brings back some years. This show made me picking up a guitar and wanted me to become a rock-star. I was in my teenage years and planned my run-away to California to found a band and to live to life of Rock'n'Roll.
Well, the show ended much too early, or maybe -in retrospect- at the right time. I'm not a rock star and did not do the runner to California, and did not set up a band. Guess I turned out alright - but when I listen to songs like "How do you talk to an angel" it really takes me back - and makes me wanna be a Rock'n'roll star all over again.
Great show, nice memories - but I'm not surprised it got sacked. Even good bands don't make it to their second album. Did really anybody expect the Heights to do more than one season? I didn't.
Anyway, can you buy it on DVD? Is worth it.
