Critics Consensus

Its heart may be in the right place, but Heartland is nothing more than a conventional medical drama.

Critic Reviews for Heartland Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

[A] straight-ahead, conventionally rendered medical series.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

"Heartland" doesn't use its talent in service of anything other than predictable, inoffensive stories and a contrived relationship between the two leads. No one has the chance to shine.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

[A] fairly generic medical drama.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

"Heartland" (created by David Hollander) is, nonetheless, an affecting and smart treatment of a complex theme.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

[David Hollander] has pared the medical drama down to its barest notions of life and death and sliced away the acronyms, arguably just when they needed some cutting.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Heartland shoots the middle with non-offensive, unchallenging plots, something a show like this simply can't afford to do.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

... after House, Heartland seems a little regressive.

Feb 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Nobody doesn't like Treat Williams, but his Dr. Nathaniel Grant, transplant surgeon, is a bit tiresome.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

[A]t least the show has its heart in the right place and could spark an increase in organ donation.

Sep 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Blending gritty drama and raw emotion, Heartland explores the sentiments on both the giving and receiving ends of the organ donation process and follows the highs and lows of life for the pioneering doctor at the center of it all.

Sep 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's always challenging for a new series to find its footing... so there's hope that "Heartland" may evolve beyond the run-of-the-mill medical drama it begins as this week.

    I love the show. But Lou can go bye bye. She is the worse character on the show. She's a brat spoiled and extremely whinny and selfish know it all .
