Did You Know?


On one of the takes of Jack & Elizabeth's first scene of Season 2, Daniel Lissing accidentally threw his co-star Erin Krakow right over the horse he was supposed to help her up on. She fell in the mud on the other side, but was unharmed. See more »


I notice the the strap offering support to the gun belt worn by the Royal North West Mounted Police as portrayed on this show, changes sides. From what I understand, it should offer support on the side the sidearm is worn by an officer. The alternate to this is seems to offer support to a ceremonial sword worn by a higher ranking officer.

I have noticed that the strap is incorrectly worn both ways by the character Jack Thornton. See more »

A Gem of a show- Keep them coming
21 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Hallmark team, with Michael Landon,Jr and Janette Oke have a winner here.

A seemingly period piece with contemporary issues , from overbearing parent' s expectations, and complaints about homework and disinterested students and let us not forget the mayor's wife dropping the founder's day play on the teacher; to the cooperative set up of the classroom with its many distractions and interruptions which really to do occur in today's public classroom. Being a public school teacher I could relate and thought the teacher anxiety over the play was portrayed nicely. Loved the scene when Elizabeth trips and Jack catches her.

Episode 7, dealing dyslexia. and the conflict with the parents was again portrayed well. Parents and teachers both meaning well, yet not sure what is really best for the child.

Episode 8, simply the best most moving, of the season a "wounded warrior" (recovering coal miner) from a life changing experience(lost of a leg)- how the individual,the family, and community responded to a person who is different in body and spirit now. Beautiful scene between Jack and Adam around the campfire about a child's perspective when a parent(father)- is injured- being male made it even more meaningful for- since fathers are often children's first heroes.

Episode 10 Had the more of western feel with the bank robbers and Jack in the saddle and alone so much and the camera picking up the landscape and scenery, was beautiful. The camera shots the morning after, when the characters were returning to town just stunning.

Please do not stop with just one season. Nice to have a family drama and meaningful stories for all family members to watch and relate to.
