'A Heartland Christmas:' An Avalanche, Some Horses With Makeup and Nicholas Campbell

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Dec 6th 2010 5:00PM

Family favourite 'Heartland' is debuting its first Christmas special, 'A Heartland Christmas,' this week. The stand-alone film features the 'Heartland' gang banding together to help rescue some horses trapped by an avalanche in the fictional town of Pike River.

Veteran actor Nicholas Campbell ('Da Vinci's Inquest,' 'Haven') guest stars as a crusty old Pike River resident who makes life difficult for Amy (Amber Marshall) and Ty (Graham Wardle). Meanwhile, frazzled Lou (Michelle Morgan) is trying to create the perfect Christmas back at home.

TV Squad caught up with Marshall, Wardle and Campbell to get the scoop on the Christmas special. We chatted about everything from Christmas traditions to horse makeup to what it was like acting while having snow cannons shoot them in the face.

Q&A: Amber Marshall at the Heart of 'Heartland'

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 20th 2009 11:01PM
Since its debut in 2007, the wholesome CBC series 'Heartland' has defied odds and expectations. Focusing on a young Alberta woman who can 'talk' to horses, this show has maintained and grown a devoted fan following that shows no sign of dissipating. The third season launched on October 4, and the premiere had its biggest audience ever - over 1 million viewers.

Parents and children alike appreciate 'Heartland's positive messages (a rarity in today's primetime line-up), and series star Amber Marshall is a genuine role model for Canadian girls who tire of the typical overly-done-up women who headline contemporary TV shows. AOLTV spoke to Marshall about what her life is like now, and how it feels to work with horses nearly every day.

Heartland: The Places You'll Go

by Brett Love, posted Jul 18th 2007 7:00AM
Treat Williams and Kari Matchett(S01E05) The preview for Heartland that ran during The Closer said it was a can't miss episode. To be honest, I have no idea what they were on about. There wasn't anything particularly shocking, or interesting, nor any big revelations about any of the characters. It was, for the most part, just like every other episode has been. That is, somewhat disjointed with too little focus on the main characters.

And with this episode, I think they finally lost me. The promise that I saw in the premiere hasn't turned into a show that I am going to watch every week. Add in the fact that my Monday TV schedule is already pretty busy with Inside Nextel Cup, The Closer, Big Love, Hell's Kitchen, and the upcoming Saving Grace, and there just isn't enough room for Heartland. So, I'm checking out of St. Judes, and this will be my last post on the show.

Heartland: Mother & Child Reunion

by Brett Love, posted Jul 10th 2007 12:19PM
heartland - treat williams, kerry matchett(S01E04) This week we finally got the big clash between Nathaniel and Jonas that has been coming since Jonas left Stanford to return to St. Jude. Unfortunately, it is still such a one-sided relationship that there wasn't a lot to the clash. It came down to Nathaniel jerking Jonas around while Jonas had no recourse other than to beg and plead.

The decision that Nathaniel was struggling with regarding the fetal uterine transplant was interesting. Certainly the dangers and risks of experimental surgery are nothing new to him, as evidenced by the Neubacher heart for baby Maya. It's a tricky bit of business though when the guy who blew up his marriage by cheating on his wife, and then cheats on his new girlfriend with the ex-wife, starts pulling out the morality card.

Heartland: Picking Up Little Things

by Brett Love, posted Jul 3rd 2007 4:00PM
treat williams - heartland(S01E03) The folks over at St. Jude's aren't doing a lot to assuage my concerns about the show becoming too repetitive. Three episodes is still too early to say this is how it is going to be, but I'm starting to worry. The stories and conflicts that were put in play from the first episode seem to be getting little play as we focus on the cases of the week. These aren't bad stories, but I'm far more interested in the main characters that we see each week.

While that is something to keep an eye on, we did get two interesting cases to look at this week. First, heart transplant patient Andrew Wyles (K'sun Ray). As they talked about how Andrew's treatment wasn't working whenever he left the hospital I thought it could go one of two ways. Either he was making himself sick, or it was Munchausen by proxy and his grandmother was doing it. I was leaning toward the grandmother until we actually met her. She didn't come across as the type to be behind it, which made it clear that Andrew was a very troubled boy.

TNT moves Heartland to 8pm

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2007 4:01PM

Heartland

I'm not sure if this means that TNT doesn't have any faith in the show or if they have a lot of faith in the show. I sense the former.

The network has announced that they are moving the new Treat Williams medical drama Heartland from the cushy post-Closer spot at 10pm on Mondays to 8pm. That means it won't have a strong lead-in (The Closer is doing great in the ratings) and will have to kick off the night on its own. Heartland isn't exactly a hit with critics.

What's going in the 10pm slot? Glad you asked! It's Saving Grace, a new show starring Holly Hunter as an alcoholic cop who gets help from an angel after she causes an accident.

Heartland: I Make Myself Into Something New

by Brett Love, posted Jun 26th 2007 9:00AM
Rockmond Dunbar(S01E02) With Nathaniel taking over for Bart as the Chief of Staff at St. Jude, his old position is available. This week we learn that it has been filled by one Dr. Tom Jonas (Rockmond Dunbar). I was curious to see how this would go because this is a much different character than C-Note from Prison Break. Give some credit to Dunbar. I was on board with him as Jonas right away.

It was good, but not what I was expecting. Based on the previews I expected there to be more animosity between Nathaniel and Tom. There was a bit of that as they disagreed over the treatment of Gilliam, but by the end of the episode they were joking with each other so it looks like the writers are going in a different direction.

Heartland, Morena Baccarin, Treat Williams, Kari Matchett

(S01E01) I was curious to get a look at this show as soon as I heard about it. If you were even the most casual fan of Everwood, the premise had to sound some bells. Treat Williams as a brilliant surgeon who struggles to juggle all of the balls in his personal life. That's a thumbnail sketch, but it's one that fits both Nathaniel Grant and Andy Brown very well.

TNT, TBS offer episodes online this summer

by Anna Johns, posted May 29th 2007 7:09PM
the closerTNT and TBS will offer all seven of their original summer series for free online. New episodes will appear on Turner websites about about 3 am the morning following their debut, and the episodes will be available for viewing for about a month each.

Believe it or not, Turner is one of the first cable networks to do the streaming episodes thing, following in the footsteps of the big four networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Last summer, only ABC Family offered its original programming for free online. Other networks, such as FX, Sci Fi, USA, and E! have streamed occasional episodes (mostly premieres and finales) but not entire seasons. As Broadcasting and Cable points out, it's probably because the cable networks can't demand a ton of money from carriers if their content is also available for free online.

Beginning next month, The Closer, Heartland, Saving Grace, and The Company will be on TNT.tv, while House of Payne, The Bill Engvall Show, My Boys, and The Frank Show will be on TBS.com. Episodes of The Closer, Bill Engvall, My Boys and The Frank Show will also be available on iTunes.
