It is a show that you can set down with your family and watch and not worry about content. It is a great way to open dialogue about God. The fact that it didn't attach itself to one paritcular religion is what makes it's appeal wide. It touches on subjects like alzhiemers, racism, alcoholism, drugs, teen issues, depression, AIDS, suicide, internet preditors, and many more topics that when watching with your family it can open a dialogue on these issues too.
This should be a must buy for anyone with family that wants something to watch with the kids. It is a must buy for the individual that wants to be reminded that God does love them even with their human faults.
The guest star line up is like a who's who in Hollywood. Bill Cosby, Randy Travis, Patty Duke, Priscilla Presley, Wynonna Judd, Celine Dion, Mandy Patinkin, Cloris Leachman, and etc. etc.
The regular cast that consists of Della Reese as Tess, Roma Downey as Monica, and John Dye as Andrew work so well together as a team and individually that you forget that they aren't really angels, yet makes you hope that there just might be angels like these.
I just hope that seasons 2-9 will also be offered thru Amazon so people like me can have our show back again, even if we have already seen the shows. They are just as good the second time around.
It's too bad that the television producers don't know how to come up with more wonderful family-oriented programs like this one. The show's producers, directors, writers and especially Roma Downey should have won multiple Emmys, but you know how Hollywood works. The lowest common denominator gets all the kudos. A special 'thank you' goes out to the executive producer, Martha Williamson, without whom this show would have been impossible.
Though I've had my first generation Philips DVD player since they were introduced in 1997, I've only bought one other TV series on DVD, which was Smallville, another well-written series that can be viewed together with your family. In 2005, we have a total of 7 DVD-capable units in our household - including 2 computer-mounted, a portable, a PS2 and a DVD recorder - but still a dearth of quality TV shows.
Touched By An Angel is the only other one that is worth buying, and I'm certainly glad that I did.
Consider this DVD set a worthy investment that you will not regret!
PARAMOUNT: Please keep releasing all of the seasons! Thanks!
One final note: I believe that angels are real and can appear in any form at any time. Of course they can't all be blessed with the perfectly-cast winsomeness of Roma Downey.
Update: It is now August 31, 2004 and I bought my set today at WalMart. I was NOT disappointed. It is everything I hoped for and more!! Lots of extras including Martha Williamson's interview on 60 minutes, the series finale (which I hope is not a portent toward them not releasing the rest of the seasons). The images are clear, the color is beautiful and of course the episodes from the first season are all first rate, my favorite being "There But For the Grace of God", which ranks among my top five TBAA episodes! I urge everyone to get out and buy this and tell other TBAA fans also so that we can get season II out there as quickly as possible!! Bravo!!
