When I began to watch *Higher Ground*, from the few ads I'd seen beforehand, I expected another bland *Neon Rider*, or worse, a shallow *Popular* or soapish *Dawson's Creek*.

Higher Ground is an entertaining and engaging show about a group of teenagers and their experience at a rehabilitation camp for kids with drug, alcohol and behavioral issues.

I enjoyed it and hope to see the series again !

It also has a gripping story line that teens have to deal with including relationships with guys and girls.

And the Vancouver scenery is just breathtaking.

If the show ever appears at your local station or on a cable channel in the future, I highly recommend it.

The series has a very talented cast and each story line is gripping and very realistic.

Every person I have showed my tapes too has enjoyed it 100 percent.

It approaches heavy issues in a way that no other series has ever done, and keeps you on the edge of your seat with suspense.

All I have to say, this series is such a compelling and powerful drama.

*shrugs* Well, anyway, just wanted to leave my note of how great this show is.

Higher Ground is a fantastic and heart gripping TV series which takes us to a school in the mountains where teens are forced to face their fears and rebuild their shattered lives.
