No offense to Jill Scott, we’re positive that she’s gonna make a great angel judging by this Highway to Heaven trailer. But there are somethings that just shouldn’t be messed with and Highway To Heaven is one of those things.
Lifetime has rebooted the classic as a movie series. And yes, are we glad that it’s not a television show? Of course! Because that would be downright disrespectful to the original.
You know how you watch television shows with your family when you’re a kid and you are like yes, let that show be over with? My Grandma used to watch Highway To Heaven and after it was cancelled, she had the show on VHS tapes and we’d all sit and watch with her.
But I will be honest, I never, ever thought that the show would come back. Michael Landon was an icon. He was what made the show. He made everything he was in special and welcoming. He was an actor that no one could ever take over the roles that he did and especially this one.
And sure, people will say it’s cause of my history with it, but that is neither here nor there.
“A few weeks in one place can be enough to change a life — I could start today.”
Yes, that line is very true and there are some things in the trailer that make us really think okay this could be okay.
But we’re still skeptical and loving the original.
The series will be about, “Scott stars as new angel Angela who comes down to Earth to help people in crisis. Landon played the male version of the character in the original series, the angel Jonathan, who was sent to Earth to help people in need. Watson portrays Junior High School principal Bruce to whom Angela reveals her true identity.”
Is it a movie series that you will watch?
