  • Jonathan Storm

    A surprisingly effective personal drama.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Dorothy Rabinowitz

    This is suspense that goes well beyond that of most medical shows.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Adam Buckman

    A mushy, messy, medical melodrama that's pretty much identical to a dozen other doctor dramas you've seen many times before.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ginia Bellafante

    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.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    The characters connect mostly on a clinical level, rarely deeper.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    A pedestrian medical drama that sparks to life near the end of the pilot.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    The declining but not yet flatlining EKG of their relationship is captured very nicely by Williams and Matchett, both giving strong, stoic performances. Everything else is too quiet, though. [25 Jun 2007, p.41]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Despite “Heartland’s” obviously good intentions and Williams’ likable presence, it’s difficult to find a pulse in this workmanlike drama.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Fox should send TNT the super fancy bouquet because, once again, "House" never looked so good.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It is every organ transplant storyline you've ever seen before on "ER" or "Chicago Hope" or elsewhere, told in the most unimaginative fashion possible, acted out by a competent group of actors not given much to play.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    "Heartland" doesn't use its talent in service of anything other than predictable, inoffensive stories and a contrived relationship between the two leads.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    In terms of concocting drama, the characters and situations don't strike sharply enough to break the skin, much less stir the heart.

    Variety Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    [A] treacly piece of tripe.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    There's no reason to sugarcoat this: Watching Williams made me want to nod off.
