Wonderful show not given a chance
28 November 2001 | by (Metro-Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I was very disappointed when this show was cancelled, because I thought it was excellent. The cast members weren't only gifted actors, but very talented musicians and singers (they played their own instruments and did their own singing). I think it's a shame that the networks don't give shows a chance to find an audience these days. This show was pulled after only 12 episodes, which sometimes isn't enough. If you're ever able to find an episode on TV or available at the video store, I highly recommend it. And if you're really lucky to come across the soundtrack to this show, buy it! I bought it when it came out in 1992 and still enjoy it today. In addition to "How Do You Talk to An Angel," it has many, many great songs.
