It was really a shame when they cut this series off in mid-season. It was probably the most honest depiction of a city parish that has ever been produced. Nothing was glossed over and the characters were not shown to be holier than thou. Certainly obvious, was the fact that a priest was one of the main consultants/writers. Issues that beset those who have chosen to be clerics - those who practice - those who do not practice the faith - were thoughtfully presented. The episodes really made one stop and think. I found the shows in which the priest(s) dealt with issues of their own to be most effective. This made them more real and accessible - something, which I am afraid - is not the case with most Catholic clerics. I would suggest that the series be shown in the seminaries so the young men who have elected to follow this path could see what "out there" might be like. I certainly wish that they would release the aired shows on DVD and if there were any in the can, or unreleased, I would relish having them in my library.....and I almost never purchase DVD's.
