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 ...
Monica goes to driving school. The teacher's son is her assignment. Jesse teaches school in an underprivileged area; one student's father sells drugs and tries to sell them at the school. The angels ...
Angels are dispatched from heaven to inspire people who are at a crossroads in their lives. Monica, an angel who at times still needs some guidance with her earthly assignments, reports to Tess, her tough, wise, and always loving supervisor. Joining them is Andrew, 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
John Masius' original pilot script was much darker than that which was eventually shown on television. (In the original pilot, Tess was a chain-smoking angel who was frequently at Monica's throat. Della Reese once said in a interview, that in it Tess was mad at Monica because she owed her four hundred dollars.) See more »
Even I resisted this program for many years. It seemed too syrupy, goofy, lovey-dovey for my self-important moods and points of views. And I had this opinion for quite a long time. I never bothered to watch one single program until last month. I think I know why.
I wasn't ready.
Now I'm ready. And what I've witnessed during these lovely hours has helped me through the most difficult time in my life.
I forgive those reviewers who cannot see past the neat and necessary one-hour resolution of each program.
I forgive those who cannot see past the reality that as much as this program presents us with a view of God and Angels...that we all still don't know everything. What we must rely on is faith and hope to give us the strength to go on with out lives when tragedy or insurmountable difficulties strike us down.
The angelic combination of actors, Roma Downey, John Dye and the legendary Della Reese give a completeness, perhaps whole roundness to these inspiring hours. Each of them brings a special and unique warmth to their roles. The addition of Valerie Bertinelli was very welcome and has brought a wonderful character of innocence and comic relief (for the sake of a better word) at the same time.
I am very thankful for this series and for the actors, directors, producers, writers and crew who have dedicated their time to bringing this to us.
If you've gotten this far in my review and you're still not convinced...I beg you give it a chance. And I pray your heart will open to the possibility of miracles in all of our lives.
