Storyline

The inspiring and provocative series is back for a second season tapping into the universal fantasy: to be given a second chance to fix an error of the past. Every episode features a guest star playing a flawed person who dies suddenly. Waiting for him on the other side are two celestial figures: a guide, Mr. Smith, and Judge Othniel. The person is given the chance to return to earth and to a time when he went astray. Guided by Mr.Smith, the character has three days to cajole his younger self to not make the same mistake. By changing history, he can alter the future and the course of other lives affected by him. It is not easy as it first appears because the character must overcome deep biases and character flaws. Mr. Smith, who doesn't remember his own life on earth and death, struggles to make sense of human nature and to unravel the mysteries of the Universe. But by guiding others, he hopes to earn his own second chance. Written by Betty Palik

good show, kind of corny but sweet
22 September 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is a not bad show, produced by Barney Rosensweig. It is a long way away from Cagney and Lacey and The Trials of Rosie O'Neil, his best shows, but it is sweet and has some good guest stars on it. Heaven forbid anyone else employ actors over the age of 35, so it is up to good old reliable Mr. Rosensweig to do this. Some of the shows are really good, like one with Stephanie Zimbalist as a woman who gets to see what her life would have been like if she had stopped smoking. It was very good. Also a riot was the one with Lesley Ann Warren, getting to be the Jewish mother on screen. It is a funny performance, which is not a surprise because although Warren is a great actress, she is an even better comic actress. So if you see this one, check it out; you will be pleasantly surprised.
