THE PLOT THUS FAR
Monica, Tess, and Andrew are a trio of angels sent to earth to tell depressed and troubled people that God loves them and God hasn’t forgotten them.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Despite literally presenting the existence of God and His helpers, the show was watched faithfully by nonbelievers. Each week the angels were dispatched in human form as a nurse, or a teacher, or a carpenter, or a friendly neighbor to assist in an illness, poverty, loneliness. Invariably the angel as human would fail to resolve the problem so they would finally reveal their true nature by glowing, and inform the suffering person that God loves them. At this point, numerous viewers broke into tears.
It’s been said that life is tough and then you die. Thus countless people desperately want to believe in a loving God that will reward them in Heaven. The show dispensed with theological downsides, namely questioning why a loving Being would allow hardship before reaching that Heaven. Each week one was so wrapped up in the realistic portrayals of suffering that one was enraptured by the happy conclusion.
The sixth season was soon after the Angel of Death started taking prominent features. However, it’s nowhere near the highlight of the series. Is it really a show highlight to state that Della Reese looked fatter this year? The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is typical for older television coming to standard definition. The transfer leaves a lot to be desired and the Dolby track is thin. In the end, I’d recommend a rental to fans.
