What show has been called the WE network's "secret ratings weapon" (Entertainment Weekly) and "the Waltons for the '90s" (Newsday)! Not steamy teen dramas Dawson's Creek, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's 7th Heaven", a smart, funny, inspirational, and heartwarming look at the lives of the seven Camden kids, their minister father, and strong-willed homemaker mother. 7th Heaven", like the equally popular television hit Touched by an Angel, addresses real issues - drugs, teenage sex, and violence - without saccharine dramatisation and without losing touch with today's teen culture. Indeed, this show "knows how to push your buttons" (The New Yorker), and its blockbuster ratings have spurred the WE to air it twice weekly. Designed to reflect a family album feel, this companion guide touches on all the episodes from the first four seasons, focusing on popular storylines like the birth of the twins and the love interests of popular teen stars Jessica Biel and Barry Watson. An appendix includes interviews with the stars and visits behind the scenes.
Due to its important themes touching on drug use, drinking and driving, and hate crimes, 7th Heaven" has earned praise for providing high-quality family entertainment.
