one of the best written shows that made it to television
This show had excellent casting, unbelievable writing, superb acting, great visuals, and the condemnation of the Catholic Church. There are simply not enough Kudos to be given. It was not afraid to tackle some of the stickiest problems facing Catholics in America. The poignant looks at abortion, divorce, alcoholism, celibacy, the poor and homeless, were just short of perfect in every episode. The show received critical acclaim, and virtually no viewership. What gives? There is/was so much other virtual junk on TV at that and this time, that I would actually rent or buy the entire series again, just to review and ponder upon the emotions which are brought to the fore from this wonderful series. For some reason I see only two other user comments in the imdb about Nothing Sacred, and that seems to echo the low viewership. What is it that I saw in this series that ABC and the rest of the world did not? I called ABC months after I could not find it on the air, and they advised that it had the lowest viewership of their entire programming. What a sad comment on TV watchers! Do you know some of the other, pardon me, c**p that is/was on? I wonder if the owners of these episodes have tried to sell them to Lifetime, A&E, HBO, or any cable network which has the courage to air them. Is it true (from one of the other user's comments) that we did not see all the episodes? What a shame. Several shames, one on ABC, one on the general viewing public, and shame on the Catholic Church for condemning it.
