Goofs

A common theme throughout Jack and Elizabeth's relationship is "Love is patient, love is kind" from 1 Corinthians 13. But with the series set in the early 1900s, the only English version of the Bible available at the time was the King James version which says "Charity suffereth long and is kind". The NIV version is what says "love is patient, love is kind" and wasn't published until 1973.

Correction: The American Revised Standard was published in 1900. It was widely viewed as a "modern" edition of the Bible and many young, educated people like Jack and Elizabeth embraced it. It would have been available even in the wilds of Canada through various booksellers' catalogs and religious societies. Its I Coinrthians 13 reads, "Love is patient, love is kind..." So this is not an anachronism at all. See more »

A Gem of a show- Keep them coming
21 March 2014 | by globalwonder9See 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.
