Comments and queries for the week of October 2

Battle of the Blades is excellent family entertainment. If you’re a skating fan this is a show not to miss. So glad Kurt is back, his skating is what we all hope to see. —Cora


I am so glad my TV family is coming back. I have not seen my real family in five years now and was so looking forward to going home to England this year to see them until COVID-19 reared its ugly head. So waiting for another year to see my TV family doesn’t seem such a long time to wait. At least it is coming back. WooHoo!!! —Beth

I’m happy to settle for 11 episodes. Hope we are all here to watch the new season. Safe travels, everyone! —Mary


We are from North Dakota and we watched all 13 seasons and can’t wait for Season 14! the lives of the families in Heartland got us through the COVID-19 and our world situation but we still need more of them! Please, please, please keep Amy and Ty and Lyndy on the show! —Jerilyn

I’m from France. Love this show, Chris Potter and Tim’s character! Hope to see Season 13 on Netflix soon. —Caroline

Link: Stars of Heartland, Canada’s ‘comfort food,’ glad to return

From Bill Graveland of the Canadian Press:

Link: Stars of Heartland, Canada’s ‘comfort food,’ glad to return
“Shame on me I didn’t know it was going to last this long and I didn’t really see why it could or would until again the penny dropped and it had nothing that was hot at the time … speed, explosions, cops, robbers, doctors, nurses, low-cut blouses, high-heeled shoes. Who’d a thunk that? Like, oh my gosh. We just seem to pick up steam. It’s nutty.” Continue reading.

Preview: Heartland returns for Season 13

Like the well-worn jeans, boots and hats they wear, Heartland is a comfortable Sunday night staple. Sure, you know there will be drama —remember Mongolia?—but at its centre, the series is about horses, family and togetherness.

Season 13 of Heartland returns this Sunday night with the episode “Snakes and Ladders.” Here’s the official synopsis from the CBC:

A disgruntled horse owner causes problems for Ty and Amy’s business, and they find themselves at odds about taking him on as a client.

And here are more details from us after watching a screener of the instalment, written by Heather Conkie and directed by Ken Filewych.

Two men sit in chairs, dressed as cowboys.

Ty and Amy’s house is being built
I’m not sure how much time has passed, but there is no snow on the ground and the foundation for the house has been poured. Lyndy is growing like crazy; when we catch up with the family, Luke is pushing her on the swing. Also? Ty got a haircut.

Amy and Ty’s business partnership is booming…
… but business comes with questionable clients and one of those, played by Joel Keller, shows up at Heartland.

Georgie is back
We catch up with her moments after Jack picked her up from the airport and discover the experiences she had and the countries she visited. Clearly, it has opened her eyes to a world outside of Heartland. And Phoenix has returned as well.

Tim is still grumpy
Even though Jack and Lisa showed him the courtesy of inviting him back onto the ranch, he doesn’t seem all that grateful.

Heartland airs Sundays at 7 p.m. on CBC.
