I am on Season 4 (It is May 27, 2021) but i just discovered Heartland about a month ago. IT IS A VERY ENJOYABLE SHOW OVERALL, BUT IT IS NOT AT ALL A CHRISTIAN SHOW, AND CERTAINLY NOT A BIBLICAL SHOW! I mean Indian mysticism is displayed more than once and there is never any mention of the the Bible or any Biblical themes taught. No mention of prayer or Christian prayer or devotion to God. I am on episode 3 of Season 4, and i don't think i EVEN HEARD THE WORD "GOD" IN THE SHOW! This reflects the STATE OF THE EVANGELICAL CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA! THE BIGGEST HIT ON WWW.UPFAITHANDFAMILY.COM IS NOT EVEN CHRISTIAN AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN WEBSITE. AND THE SHOW THAT EVERYBODY LIKES THE MOST IS NON-CHRISTIAN. AND I HATE THAT WWW.PUREFLIX.COM AND WWW.UPFAITHANDFAMILY.COM DO NOT HAVE HARDLY ANY ACTION MOVIES. JESUS BEATS UP ALL THE BAD GUYS AT ARMAGEDDON. GOD CREATES POLICE OFFICERS AND THE MILITARY BECAUSE GOD WANTS RIGHTEOUS VIOLENCE LOTS OF TIMES! I GREW UP ON AMERICAN SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS ON T.V. WITH GOOD GUYS BEAT'IN UP THE BAD GUYS, LIKE "MIGHTY MOUSE". AND, MY FAVORITE SHOW AT NIGHT WAS "SUPERMAN" ON OUR BLACK AND WHITE T.V. DURING THE SIXTIES, AND EARLY SEVENTIES! IT'S JUST THAT WITH THE WORLD BECOMING EXPONENTIALLY MORE EVIL AS GOD SAID IT WOULD IN THE BIBLE, "TRUTH, JUSTICE, & THE AMERICAN WAY" IS A FARCE NOW!
I said Heartland overall was a great non-Christian show, (Lou had sex with Peter b4 they were married and Grandpa sleeps with Lisa on a regular basis) And, there is no reference in the show to any person in the Trinity and no overt Biblical principle advocated in the show or even quickly mentioned. And we never see any prayer-only ANTI-BIBLE & AND ANTI-GOD IDOLATROUS INDIAN WORSHIP! Here below are the things that are lousy about the show. (Yet, the pluses of the show outweigh the negatives below, Although, it is hard to bear the ways of Val and Tim often times. And it is never pleasant or enjoyable to watch when they act UNCHRISTIAN, UNWISE AND JUST BEHAVE LIKE JERKS, & WITH TIM AS AN IMMATURE STUPID JERK AT TIMES. I do appreciate the light of Val appreciating Grandpa a few times lately; and a couple of nice moments with Tim and his daughters, but Tim has some lousy and unethical moments with them as well. There are 2-3 decent scenes of Grandpa and Tim). See:
First, for the first 4-6 episodes of Season 1, Grandpa was very annoying with his hatred and severe animosity toward Tim. The show's writers made a VERY POOR choice of making the show unpleasant and they gave NO NEEDED INFO as to WHY Grandpa hated Tim, his son-in-law SO MUCH! But, then suddenly, (probably because of complaints and poor ratings), Grandpa suddenly started to be a normal nice guy and not a grudge-full and resentful old man!
But, the son-in-law, Tim, on many multiple occasions in many episode has proved to be A REAL JERK & IDIOT. And once again, the screen writers do not realize that their audience does not enjoy what they write. Once again, you cannot enjoy the character; it makes the show unpleasant.
Val is the FEMALE SIDE OF TIM...A TOTAL MALADJUSTED DYSFUNCTIONAL VERY UNPLEASANT JERK!
Finally, i like all the other characters thus far. I think Lou and others TAKE MALLORY FOR GRANTED AND ON A FEW OCCASIONS WERE DOWNRIGHT MEAN TO HER. But fortunately it hasn't occurred too much!
