Jonathan Smith is a probationary angel sent back to Earth to help people. During the series' first episode, he meets embittered ex-policeman Mark Gordon (as Jonathan is walking along a little-used road, on which Mark happens to be driving). Jonathan helps reform Mark, with the grateful Mark agreeing to become Jonathan's right-hand associate in carrying out the heavenly mission. The two begin traveling the country as itinerant workers, receiving assignments from "the Boss" (God), with their mission being to deliver love, understanding and humility to the people they encountered. Typical episodes stressed moral, Christian themes; though many episodes dealt with common human failings, such as egotism, bitterness and greed, some shows addressed such topics as racism and cancer. A few shows, however, were played mainly for laughs (such as Landon recreating his first famous starring role in a takeoff of his 1957 film I Was a Teenage Werewolf and his role in in little house on the prairie).Written by

Victor French did not live to see the broadcast of the final seven episodes since the broadcast of the final season was delayed by NBC. Like his character, he was a heavy smoker, which eventually led to his early death at age 54. In the series finale, he is shown living into his 80's when Jonathan takes him 30 years into the future to the year 2018. Jonathan told him he would live that long because he quit smoking. See more »
Most of the original episodes, which aired on prime time television, normally contained between five to seven minutes of additional scenes and dialogue which has since been lost. This material was not included in any of the syndicated copies of the show, which today are the only versions available. See more »
I was please to hear that the reruns are coming back on in our area this coming week. I loved this series.It had good messages in it for everyone. With Michael Landon and Victor French-a winning team just like they were on Little House.Maybe more people should watch family shows like this and Touched By A Angel and maybe they will once again realize things that we all have but seemed to have put on the back burner at times----Faith, Hope, and Love.Thank you Michael Landon for giving us all a chance to see real situations,real people,and what the power that we possess inside of all of us can really do.This show to me was one of the best.
