Highly influenced my life
27 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was only seven or eight years old when I watched this show on television, but it so influenced me at a young age that, later in life, I entered the seminary. Now at age 60 some of the scenes are still fresh in my memory. I clearly remember the beginning of each episode with the man walking down a path that was shaped like a cross.

I especially remember an episode with a priest being hung as if on a cross with his feet in ice and loud speakers constantly blaring in his ears "preach, talk, preach, talk". It made me realize that the life of the clergy can be riddled with bigotry and persecution.

Would that we could have shows like this on television today.
