You know those TV shows that are completely predictable, and have stereotypical characters and cheesy dialog, but you still feel like coming back? Well, this one is like that.
This was based on the movie "The Heavenly kid" (i don't know if they got paid for it or not). Basically it's about an angel (a guy who died in the 50's, there's a lot of references to that time period, as i recall) who gets missions on earth to help people. Each episode, he would help someone with some crossroads in their lives, to change their destiny for the better.
It had potential to be a weekly waste of time of the supernatural nature, such as Medium or The ghost whisperer. It was "feel good" type of show, that was the strength of it. Think of Touched by an Angel, but with a not so holy angel and no sidekicks.
Felt more like a 90's show than an 80's show, maybe that's why it failed. There's only 12 episodes, and i got to see 5 (probably, not sure). I remember the cinematography of this was very nice for the time (but i was 7 when i saw this, i might be wrong), it probably was too expensive to shoot.
As far as i know this is not on DVD. And, yes, I looked for it everywhere.
