Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
The drama about a pair of angels, Monica Roma Downey and Tess Della Reese, who intervene in the lives of humans to show them that God loves them was originally pitched with Downey as an angel of mercy who was battling with head angel Reese. And while the pilot -- in which Downey and Reese sported wings -- was deemed a disaster, executive producer Martha Williamson managed to retool the show, which eventually ran for nine years on CBS. She believed that people would actually want to watch a show about angels that dealt with faith and God honestly, and reshot the pilot with Downey and Reese as coequal angels sent to help people. Although sometimes criticized for sanctimony, the drama captured audiences with its strong writing and the camaraderie between its stars. Touched by an Angel also paved the way for other "spiritual" dramas, such as 1998's Promised Land with Gerald McRaney also produced by Williamson, and the WB network's 7th Heaven. In the premiere episode, "The Southbound Bus," Monica has been promoted to caseworker and befriends a young boy who tells her his mother and sister died in a car accident. This episode also introduces the first angel of death, Adam Charles Rocket, who was later replaced by John Dye as Andrew. All 11 episodes of Season 1 are contained in this first volume, the highlights of which include Phylicia Rashad in "Tough Love" as Liz Jessup, a journalist with a drinking problem; "Manny," with Rue McClanahan as the matriarch of a prestigious family who is hiding the true secret of her heritage; and "Cassie's Choice," featuring a pre-Buffy the Vampire Slayer Alyson Hannigan as a pregnant teen who changes her mind when it comes time to give her child up for adoption. Other notable guest stars this season include Party Machine queen Nia Peeples, L.A. Law's Susan Ruttan, Newhart's Peter Scolari, country singer Randy Travis, and erstwhile Cosby kid Malcolm Jamal-Warner.

    A heartwarming Program

    A heartwarming and touching program showing the heartaches and turmoil’s of the human heart. Showing that even in our darkest hour God is always watching, showing his love and kindness and wanting the best for us. Even if we refuse to listen or continue ignoring his voice. Thus opening ourselves to new insights over who we truly are.

    Touching

    I really love this show, and am sad that there will no longer be current episodes. My parents and I like to watch it as we eat dinner, so I guess we'll stick to reruns unless we find something else of substance to watch.
