Storyline

St. Barnabas's episcopalian vicar Daniel Webster has a wealthy parish. Yet his family life constantly complicates everything. Peter is Daniel's model son and med student, but struggles with being a semi-closet gay. His adopted brother, ethnic Asian Adam, is an incorrigible rascal. Daniel's father in law is also a bishop, and the 'discrete best friend' of Daniel's bishop. In-laws and parish benefactors attract further trouble on top of the regular pastoral work. A hippie Jesus Christ inspires Daniel in cheeky visions. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent Show...
4 February 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show. It was a good, funny show. Although it was only on for like 3 episodes, it was great. Imagine my disappointment when it was cancelled because of "controversal reasons". I can understand why Christain people wouldn't want this show on the air-it does make their religion look bad. But the one question that I have it "Did anyone make them watch it?" If they don't want to watch it, there is an off button on the TV. No one made religious people watch it. I know there were a lot of churches that said it was "their duty to stop this show from airing..." What a joke! This show should not have been cancelled,at least not for such a dumb reason.
