The Complete First Season
|Beloved funnyman John Ritter (8 Simple Rules, Three's Company) and Night Court's Markie Post heat up the screen in this irresistible TV comedy! One of the best-loved series of the '90s, Hearts Afire ignites laughter with its sizzling chemistry, razor-sharp dialogue and stellar cast, including the Oscar -winning Billy Bob Thornton as Ritter's best buddy. In Washington, D.C., senator's aide and divorced dad John Hartman (Ritter) lives and works strictly by the book...except when it comes to brand-new press secretary Georgie Lahti (Post), a sassy, risk-taking rebel. They couldn't be more different, yet a passionate romance develops that changes their lives. Adding to the craziness, the couple must cope with Lahti's ex-con dad (Ed Asner, The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Billy Bob's estranged wife (Wendie Jo Sperber, Bosom Buddies) and their slightly scatterbrained boss (George Gaynes, Tootsie).|
Editor's NoteFirst airing at the beginning of the 1990s, HEARTS AFIRE became popular due to the prescience of its politics, and the apparent chemistry of its characters, both of which manage to come across here on this collection of episodes from the first season. John Ritter stars as John Hartman, the assistant to Senator Strobe Smithers, an aging Southerner who merits comparison to Strom Thurmond. Hartman is joined in the Senator's office by fellow employees Billy Bob Davis (Billy Bob Thornton), a childhood friend and fellow Vietnam vet; and Dee Dee Starr, the bimbo secretary who is also the Senator's mistress. When Georgie Anne Lahti comes to apply for the position of press secretary, Hartman hires her immediately because he is very attracted to her. He quickly discovers, however, that her liberal politics and feminist past are at odds with the Senator's politics, as well as his own. Nonetheless, Hartman invites her to stay at his house until she finds a DC home, and the two soon find their attraction undeniable. Thus the season is established with a dynamic of sexual and political tension that gives rise to endless hilarity.
