Amazing, inspiring and smart show... a rare treasure!
How often do you come across a show aimed at teenagers that does not portray dumb kids doing stupid things in unrealistic situations?
What happened to shows that were "real", that people could actually relate to, that didn't have to be completely mindless to be successful?
"In a Heartbeat" was exactly what TV viewers needed. A very intelligent show, it followed the lives of EMT teenagers dealing with their daily lives in school, at home and at work. The characters easily hooked you on, and their adventures were interesting to watch. It was neither overly dramatic nor sugarcoated, and yet was still very enjoyable to watch. The acting was terrific and the storyline was simply remarkable. Most everyone who watched the show fell in love with it.
I have no idea what reason Disney could give on why they cancelled the show, and I'd love to see it start up again, but I know that it most likely won't happen. Instead, Disney should consider releasing the lone season of "In a Heartbeat" on VHS/DVD to make up for their big mistake.
A definite 10/10 stars show. Catch the reruns if you can.
