One of the best of the series
15 February 2007 | by (Huntington, Texas) – See all my reviews

Valeria Cantrell has a bit of a problem. Apparently, she is a saint. This comes with all the trimmings, including minor miracles and an occasional radiant glow when she speaks. Unfortunately, this is causing a few problems for her and her husband, who is running for mayor. Her glowing and unexpected miracles don't seem to be in keeping with the image of a prospective First Lady of their town.

After consulting with a local priest, she earnestly tries to change the situation by systematically breaking each of the ten commandments.

This episode of TFTD is a real change of pace for the series, because it's very funny. Poor Valeria is really a sweet lady and seeing all the ways she tries to solve this problem is a joy to watch.

Definitely check out this episode if you can. It's a shame this series is not available on DVD yet!
