Did You Know?


Starting in season 2, most of the episodes of the show have the word "Heart" in the title including all of season 4. See more »


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 »

User Reviews

Love this show!
9 March 2014 | by adnil-2See all my reviews

It is so refreshing to see a wholesome, quality show on the air. This show is reminiscent of the "Little House On The Prairie" days - not surprising given who's involved in bringing it to us!

This is one of those shows that appeals to all age groups; it's one that the family can sit down and watch together. It's great to finally have one of those again.

The cast and crew of this show is superb. The show is very well done and is set in a gorgeous location.

I cannot recommend this show enough and hope that its success in Season One means that more Seasons are coming.

This is one of those shows that I will be purchasing when it comes out on DVD/Blueray. It's one that I want in my collection.
