Storyline

Doug and Lexy Monroe are a newly married couple that lost their lives in an airplane crash. Immediately after they arrive on the 13th floor of a hotel (a ghost floor, because the hotels only have 12), where Mr. Shepherd explains that on account of an unintentional jurisdiction crossing between Heaven's supervisors, they must return to Earth to help people until Mr. Shepherd's bosses decide whether they go to Heaven. Meanwhile, their souls will live this test of time, both will live on the 13th floor like a temporal house in the waiting for the final resolution. Acting as personal supervisor, Mr. Shepherd will give control to Doug and Lexy on their different missions, hoping that they make a good job for them both go to Heaven someday. Written by Chockys

Ill-advised Spelling series
7 January 2005 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This expensive Spelling blending of "Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" was already out-of-date when produced in 1994. The concept was so tired

  • parade a bunch of "retired" older TV actors through predictable


romantic plots - that the producers switched gears in mid-stream, and populated the remaining episodes with many of Spelling's younger talent pool.

Filmed in San Antonio, and taking advantage of its beautiful locations for the first few episodes, the series abruptly began to avoid any defining geography or landmarks of the location. If a second season had been produced, the series would have moved to LA, site of most Spelling projects.

The syndicated show never managed to get much attention, although all 13 episodes were aired. Leads John Schneider and Ricardo Montalban perform with their usual professionalism.

The plot is bizarre - a newlywed couple crashes their small, twin-engine plane into the downtown San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk (using actual name and location), and then live as "assisting angels," under the guiding influence of Montalban.

A lost footnote in the careers of several well-known TV performers.
