A GREAT PROGRAM THAT FEW PEOPLE SEEM TO REMEMBER, 20 May 2001
Author: jseneca78 from LOUISIANA

I remember this program on TBS in the 80's. Few of my friends knew of it. It was a program that was quite unique and quite good in my estimation. Although I was a child and scarcely remember it, it would be rather nice to see it again. All I remembered of it was that it pertained to an angel sent "down to earth" to a family in the 1980's.I also remembered the husband from Bewitched as a main character. I enjoyed the show back then and probably still would now. It's just a shame that more people haven't seen it. WHAT A LOSS!! It was a GREAT program!!
