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

It's a shame such a good show ended so soon...
23 December 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better shows of our time, it is a shame that it ended, but it would have been worse if they had just replaced Mr Waxman without a thought. I don't understand why Mr Jones was taken from the story and replaced with Mr Smith, but both seasons were good. If you can catch this series on re-runs, watch it, you won't be disappointed. As well, there are a lot of good guest stars, a new story every episode! I have actually seen every single episode, most only once, though. If you haven't seen this show, you should make a point to check it out, it is up lifting and spiritual, enjoyable, there are a few episodes that are a little deep for children, but it is a really good series for teens.
