Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Roma Downey, Della Reese. This series is one of the most cherished in recent TV history-and now the first 16 episodes from the third season are available in this deluxe collection featuring guest-stars Olympia Dukakis, John Ritter, Kirsten Dunst and Debbie Allen! 4 DVDs. 1996/color/11 hrs., 30 min/NR/fullscreen.

The creators of Touched by an Angel were clearly of the philosophy "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." The Third Season following squarely and steadfastly in the footsteps of the second, taking emotionally fraught stories--a dedicated teacher gets kidnapped by a troubled student, a drug addict tries to set her life on the right path, a young couple call off their wedding--and brings them to a happy conclusion through the intervention of the Lord, working His mysterious ways through three angels: Monica (Roma Downey, she of the flowing brunette hair and Irish lilt), Tess (Della Reese, she of the white forelock and the gravely voice), and Andrew, an Angel of Death (John Dye, he of the sweeping Fabio-esque mane and full cheeks). It's never quite clear just how much the angels are allowed to interfere with mortal doings. In one episode, Monica gets sent to God's Country--a sort of metaphysical detention--but it's hard to say that her actions were any more out of bounds than usual. Touched by an Angel is a love-it-or-hate-it show; cynics find it smug and didactic, while fans are drawn to its sincere and caring portrayal of Christian values. As ever, the series pulls in a surprising mix of guest stars, ranging from movie stars on the rise (Kirsten Dunst, Bring It On, Spider-Man) and on the wane (Sally Kellerman, the big-screen version of M*A*S*H), TV stars (John Ritter, Three's Company; Delta Burke, Designing Women; Ja'net Dubois, Good Times; Ben Vereen, Roots), and sturdy character actors (Olympia Dukakis, Moonstruck; Harold Gould and Carol Lawrence, guest stars on just about every show imaginable in the 1970s and '80s). The Third Season, Vol. 1 includes the first 16 episodes from the 1996-1997 season, including the episode that launched the spin-off show, Promised Land, with Gerald McRaney and Ossie Davis. There are no extras on the dvds. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars The reason why it is being split in two January 6, 2006
I know it is a pain but I doubt any of you even know why Season 3 is being split in two. The reason is because Season 3 has an abnormally large number of shows in it, mainly because it has numerous Promise Land crossovers, and the rights to Promise Land have to be bought as well. They aren't doing this just to be mean. They didn't do this for season 1 or 2 and I doubt this will happen to any other season either. So please calm down, everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touched by an Angle, Third Season, Vol. 1 March 19, 2006
Being a single parent of many children, I appreciate good programs that can help my children and I to have feelings about our own lives, and others in situations that could happen. These shows get into our hearts and helps us to feel what it might be like for someone else when we watch the movies, and also helps us to stop and think about our own lives and if we are doing our best, or if we could do better in the way that we treat others. I wish there were more shows like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Your Own Comparison ..... February 13, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Complete season sets of Andy Griffith contain 32 episodes, each fitting into a half-hour time slot. They sell for roughly $30. TBAA season 3, set 1 contains 16 episodes, each for a one-hour time slot. It also sells for roughly $30. I don't see any disparity there and will not be complaining to anyone. I am most happy to have this program available to buy and am glad that it is being marketed at a very competitive price. I, like many others, would be willing to pay more if it were necessary, simply because this is such a great series. True fans will buy all of the seasons...if they are released...any way they are released...for any reasonable price. The digital conversion that was done on the first two seasons was excellent. Picture quality is great, and if you've never heard the opening theme song through a good surround-sound system with LOTS of bass you're in for a real treat! What a theme song ... and what a voice! Della..."you done good"!!! Well, this is one satisfied customer: with the first two seasons in-hand and the first part of season 3 on the way I am supremely happy that the series is still alive and available to those of us who love it. I hope the entire series is released. I will do my part by buying all of them that are. Hopefully there are enough of us to make it profitable and feasible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth $30,000.00 for an unprecedented show February 15, 2006
Just saw the first show on this volume. My heart was so moved by the Doctor who gave up her family to pursue getting ahead of others just for some financial gain. Doesn't matter whether we are millionaires or living on little as the heroins in this story were, I truly believe so many of us would be wonderfully blessed to see such a powerful moving story.

After watching the generosity of so many strangers on a bus, I could not help but cry. Was so powerfully moved by only the first show. Told my wife this was worth $30,000.00.

Can not wait till our family gets to watch ALL 16 shows on this dvd. I have not ever seen any other show like this one. Thank you very much to the makers of this movie for an amazingly unique show!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Touched By An Angel--Hurry It Up November 10, 2005
Touched by an Angel was one of the BEST series on television. I am a devoted fan who has been waiting and waiting for the dvds to come out so I could see those episodes that I had missed in the original airings.

The one thing I don't like already about this release is that it is in volumes. I want to buy FULL seasons. I don't want to waste 30$ buying half of a season and have to wait another year to buy the other half.

Getting out these seasons are taking FOREVER.

I'm still going to buy them because I love TBAA but they need to put more features on the dvd and get them out quicker.

I just don't understand why shows that are currently in their SECOND season (like Laguna Beach) have the dvd out for their first season and TBAA, whose show aired for 9 years, is lagging behind.

Anyway, this show will continue being one of the greatest on my list...right next to The X-Files. :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the show...hate the packaging December 25, 2005
I understand the frustration about the split-packaging of this DVD series. In fact, I support the criticism to the studio for this type of marketing. First off, there's only one reason at which they have chosen this style of "money making" and that I'm sure is not one that makes anyone happy but themselves. Second, this is by far one of the most popular and respected shows to have aired in television history and this marketing only brings a tainted dipiction of the series to some of the most beloved fans.

Not everyone loves this show, no. But, not everyone who does can afford this split-packaging idea either. There's no need for it and they're going to get more money for it anyway. It's also odd in the fact that the show designates the need to love and understand one another while the studio releasing of this series is doing just the opposite. I can't help but be reminded of Jesus turning over the tables of the robbers when they were making a profit off of religous sacraments that were unneccessary and offensive to some people. Some may argue that this is the same, some may say it's not as bad as the original situation. I shall let the consumer decide for themselves.

Nevertheless, I still love the show, but I may end up passing on buying more of the seasons until the studio realizes their mistake and how they are frustrating many consumers who love this beloved show. This is the same studio that made the mistake in 2002 and 2003 to release the first season of I Love Lucy in 9 volumes spanning over a year long release. I'm sure eventually they will once again realize this mistake and re-release season three of Angel, like they did of the first I Love Lucy season in 2005, when they come back to reality.

(My 1 star rating applies to the packaging, not the series nor the season themselves.)
