Storyline

Father Daniel Cleary was a very conservative priest who was paired up with a down-to-earth, liberal-leaning nun, Sister Agnes, to open a mission in Baltimore. Their disparate backgrounds and philosophies led to a number of misunderstandings and arguments--in fact, Father Cleary kept trying to get transferred to a more stable environment--but they managed to work together for the sake of their penitents. Sister Lillian and Monsignor Barlow were their superiors who were often forced to settle their disagreements. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

horrid
7 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Painfully unfunny "religious" comedy pitting stuffed shirt conservative dopey dad, er, minister against liberal minded daughter, er, nun. McLean Stevenson had a brief run in this before being stuck in the hell that was "Hello Larry" for what seemed like forever. Network execs (CBS)actually had high hopes for "In the Beginning" before it aired. Priscilla Lopez was a Tony award winner on Broadway and McLean Stevenson was still only recently removed from his success on "M*A*S*H." Ironically as bad as it was this show was quickly axed while the arguably worse "Hello Larry" ran forever because network execs cheerfully admitted that as bad as it was they didn't have anything any better to run. For a network (NBC) whose flagship show at the time was "Diffrent Strokes" this was undoubtedly true.
