It is Monica's 100th case, and not an easy one. She must help a young child fulfill his list of last wishes before he dies. One of his wishes is for his mother to finish a song she had started when ...
Angels are dispatched from heaven to inspire people who are at crossroads in their lives. Monica (Roma Downey), an angel who at times still needs some guidance with her Earthly assignments, reports to Tess (Della Reese), her tough, wise, and always loving supervisor. Joining them is Andrew (John Dye), who, in addition to his duties as the Angel of Death, helps out as a caseworker on various assignments. The angels may not bring answers to every problem, but they always deliver a message of hope.Written by
I think TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL is best described as a like-it-or-hate-it show. Some would be turned away by the message-heavy show, while others would like it for its likeable characters and family-friendly stories. I've never watched it on a weekly basis, but I have seen a good deal of episodes, and I enjoy it. I'm not a very religious person, but I can view it as a pleasant show with a lot of heart, good acting, and good storytelling. Of course, one of the reasons I like it is because of Roma Downey, whose beauty (and that beautiful voice) can make even the most slow-paced episodes enjoyable. There's no car chases or shootouts here, so some episodes do tend to be a little slow, but for those who like it, ultimately rewarding. There's obviously a good amount of chemistry between the three stars, and as I said, the stories are very family-friendly, often dealing with issues everyone can relate to. This is a show parents could feel comfortable with letting their kids watch alone. If today's kids could accept a show with more talk than action. I'm still surprised this show is still on. Shows this simple and nice usually tend to disappear immediately. I bet if the show had debuted within the past two or three years, it would have been gone before the fifth episode probably. I suspect it's got another season or two left. It's had a good run, so I would hope the show ends while it's still a good show.
