Storyline

ANGEL FROM HELL is a single-camera comedy about Amy, a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into the life of an organized and seemingly perfect young woman, Allison, claiming to be her "guardian angel." Allison is an intense, driven doctor who is sure that Amy is just an inebriated, outspoken nut, until every one of her warnings proves true. Cautioned by Amy not tell anyone about her, Allison can't discuss this over-the-top oddball with her father and business partner, Marv, a sunburned dermatologist who shares an office with Allison, or her younger brother, Brad, a pharmaceutical sales rep who lives in a guest room over her garage. As Allison tries to push Amy away, Amy makes her final pitch: her sole mission is to provide Allison with helpful guidance that nudges her in the right direction in life - and it's her final chance to prove herself as an angel. With that, Allison agrees to this unlikely relationship because maybe a weird friend is exactly what she needs... and ... Written by CBS

My new favorite comedy...
8 January 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

Just saw the pilot of "Angel from Hell" and I really liked it.

It has a great premise which can lead to both comedic and touching situations, great chemistry between the two main actresses and fast pace and editing without being hasty.

Jane Lynch plays an unconventional guardian angel (or so it seems, the supernatural element is ambiguous so far, despite some serious indications) who looks after a young female doctor. She gives a nice performance. Funny enough, eccentric and quirky, yet emotional and caring.

I'm reading some negative reviews here, so I guess it is not anyone's cup of tea. For me this show has great potential if it's done right, and so far it looks very promising.

Overall: Quirky, (maybe) supernatural comedy with lots of potential for funny and touching moments.
