There are five seasons total. The first three have been released on DVD, but there are no immediate plans to release the last two seasons because sales have been so low.

This is ironic. We just ate at Cracker Barrel this morning and in their gift shop I saw the Highway to Heaven dvd set, season 1. You know, I really enjoyed that show back in the day, but I really didn't feel a pull to buy it. This could just be me, but I just don't think Highway to Heaven stands the test of time like Little House, or some of the other 'classic' series. It had a very 'hokey' feel to it, something that didn't bother me back then, but might be a bit too much to endure by today's standards. I don't know, maybe I'm way off base here. Just thinking out loud! Whistle

I will say though, Ingallsfan, that if you're a big fan (obviously so) that the first few seasons were definitely the best. The ratings really slipped for H to H with the last couple of seasons. I remember enjoying Season 1 the most. Thumbsup

I understand exactly what you're saying Amy. I watched it off an on during the time it aired, but it wasn't a must see for me. If Michael and Victor weren't in it, I doubt I would have watched it much. It dealt with harsh issues, but it didn't hold the appeal for me that Touched by an Angel did.

Ok, glad it's not just me. Wink It wasn't a 'bad' show by any means---the concept was good I thought, I just thought it was a bit over the top, especially by the last couple of seasons.

I have the first season on DVD... it's the only Michael Landon series I watched when I was younger and I agree that it doesn't age as well as Bonanza or LHOTP. But it has its moments. I'll certainly never forget the Halloween werewolf episode.

I used to watch Highway to Heaven all the time, and when seeing it, I was reminded of the episode on LHOTP, "He Was Only Twelve". I often wonder if this episode inspired Michael Landon to write and produce Highway to Heaven. Since HWOT was so way out there for a LH episode, and H2H was kind of out there as well.....it just seemed like that was the direction ML was going in...... :think:

Well, I bought this today for $7.50. Pretty good price for a whole season. I do hope I can find the others if I enjoy it enough to look for more seasons.

When it aired I just couldn't watch it. Michael was Pa Ingalls to me, not Johnathan. I loved that he and Victor were working together again, but it just didn't work for me. I will give it another shot and see how I like it now.

I love finding cheap dvds. I am like a squirrel storing up nuts for winter. hee! hee!

Oh, how I wish I could just come by and get you Jacob and go dvd shopping together! I do hope they are releasing them again. That would be great. Its a good show and who knows, those that watch might discover Little House if they hadn't already.

The first two seasons were rereleased last year and the third season this month. Viewers are complaining, however, that despite claiming "uncut" they have been edited and that the quality is very poor.

I just bought seasons 2 and 3. I sure hope they eventually have 4 and 5. Haven't started watching it yet, but will soon.
