Critics Consensus

Harts of the West wants to be a charming family sitcom, but the series struggles with its two-dimensional characterizations and convoluted plotlines.

Critic Reviews for Harts of the West Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

All 15 episodes of ABC's 1993 comedy-drama have a great feel for parent-kid relationships and quirky characters.

It's fish-out-of-water humorcall it Western Exposure -- only here the main dude acts like a 6-year-old dunce.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

[The Harts'] reactions to the dilapidated ex-rancho are mediocre comedy; the first chapter doesn't burn up any laugh meter.

Forced, fey and aw, phooey.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Harts of the West takes a stock premise and fills it with quality fun.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The premise reeks of City Slickers, and the small town near the Harts' ranch is populated by eccentrics who seem to be auditioning for a Bizarro World version of Northern Exposure

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

On one level, it delivers laughs and low-schmaltz family drama in an easygoing, engaging way. On another level, it deals intelligently with the very American notion of frontiers and new starts.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It's decidedly goofy, the performances are winning, and the Harts are a loving if not always happy little family.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

A harmless but ultimately unsatisfying blend of obvious comedy, maudlin emotion, and some seriously overaged plot conventions.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The show does have some poignant moments. Unfortunately it seems more intent on milking comedy. The result is likable but tame, truly a dude ranch experience.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
