Critic Reviews for Dolly Parton's Heartstrings Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Heartstrings is an acquired taste, it's true. But [Dolly] Parton herself is a universally adored figure that you wish were available to call you sugar and sing you a lullaby as you softly cry yourself to sleep for the 280th time this year.

What the scripts lack, the actors try to make up for with wry looks, lip-biting and - if trying to be sexy - constant gentle undulation. But everything is terrible, and not even bad enough to be good.

...immaculate, polished, freshly varnished sets...

Nov 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Heartstrings is a great conceit tangled up in a cheap execution. By stretching Parton's songs beyond their breaking point, and stuffing the minutes with tangential fluff, the producers end up softening the impact of her heartbreaking stories.

Nov 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a bit pat, and it's definitely too long, but Turner is warm and peppery, Goodwin is likable, and by end of it, I admit it -- I was reaching for the tissues.

Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, what ended up happening is that the acting was so stilted and the dialogue so terrible that it reminded me of a really crappy episode of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, or basically any show where a crime is reenacted poorly.

Dec 2, 2019 | Full Review…

The most objectionable thing about Dolly Parton's Heartstrings is its length. There is no good reason why even an excellent show adapted from three-minute-long country songs would need to have 80-minute long episodes.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Dolly Parton's Heartstrings won't be the most revolutionary drama anthology you've seen, but it's well-acted and a fine series to warm your heart on a cold winter day.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

"Heartstrings" walks an interesting tightrope in these politically fraught times.

Nov 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Compelling, dramatic tales bring iconic song lyrics to life.

    Muito legal. Várias Histórias emocionantes. Recomendo. Espero a 2 Temporada.

    Reminiscent of Touched by an Angel and Little House on the Prairie, these stories are heartwarming and uplifting each with a positive lesson/reminder for the viewer to consider.

    I love Dolly Parton's songs and even if you aren't familiar with all of her work, you will love these short stories! They are all well told and they invest you from the beginning.
  • Nov 30, 2019
    Most episodes play like a really bad Lifetime movie. The production values and writing are surprisingly atrociously bad. I was bored out of my mind. The actors try their best with the lackluster material. Dolly's fans deserve better, as does everyone else.

    I have only seen 6 out of 8 so far but I must rush and write this review. Perfect viewing for this long Thanksgiving weekend. Dolly's life inspired many songs and now those songs are inspired in these wonderful "hallmarkish" stories and will the added bonus of Dolly's soundtrack. Dolly Forever.
