I feel like I’m the only person on here who doesn’t have any major issues with this latest season and/or finale of Heartland. It wasn’t perfect, but overall I really enjoyed it. A couple weeks ago my husband mentioned how much he enjoys Heartland. He said it was consistently good and there aren’t really any bad episodes. It’s so interesting how differently people can view the same tv show.
Dealing with a couple of the complaints people have. Disclaimer: This is just my perspective on it.
1. Georgie and Ghost. I think that was pretty in character for her. She doesn’t know about the history of the horse. Amy was too worried about Ty to get into it and Jack doesn’t know the whole history and wants to support Georgie. I think Georgie had to try and fail just like Amy did. For Georgie, this comes on the back of her recent success with helping Olivia’s horse. She’s feeling a little over confident. She’s also young and idealistic and at the age where adults opinions have less weight. I don’t see it as the writers trying to replace Amy in any way as I have seen some suggest. It was just about Georgie learning about her limitations and learning that just because she wants something doesn’t mean it’s good or for the best. We all have to learn that lesson at various stages of our life.
2. We didn’t see Ty hold or touch the baby. The baby wasn’t on screen for that long so it may have been an oversight by the writers/director. Or maybe Amy is just a baby hog. Although we never saw him hold the baby, he did touch the her right after she was born. I’m sure we’ll see him hold the baby plenty next season. I know it’s not the same as seeing it for the first time, but we can’t go back and change it now. Also, I agree with those who wish Ty hadn’t been in the hospital so long. However, it was totally worth it for me to see Caleb breaking him out.
I’m looking forward to season 11 and I can’t wait to see what happens! I would like to see a lot more Lisa/Jisa, but I’m almost sure to be disappointed about that.
