Touched By An Angel - Godspeed (1999)

Touched by an Angel is an American drama series that premiered on CBS on September 21, 1994 and ran for 211 episodes and nine seasons until its conclusion on April 27, 2003.
The series stars Roma Downey, as an angel named Monica, and Della Reese, as her supervisor Tess. Throughout the series, Monica is tasked with bringing guidance and messages from God to various people who are at a crossroads in their lives.
These images are from the season 5 episode; Godspeed, clips of which were recently viewed by myself on the old YouTube.
I'm sure it wasn't meant to make me laugh like a drain but with lines like;  "It's not your oxygen that's in short supply, its your faith." who could blame me.  We're incapable of making faith based TV like this in Blighty.  When we try it comes out all Father Ted or Vicar of Dibley.  I'm in awe.

  1. The person who wrote that abomination of a line should be subjected to exactly what happens at 1:05 in this short clip

  2. Roma Downey and her husband went on to produce an "epic" miniseries based on the bible. It was eaten up by the people who eat up that sort of thing but was criticized virtually everywhere else for casting all the good and Godly characters with white actors and all the evil characters (including Satan) with dark skinned and middle eastern actors.

      Thanks for the research, Brad. Everybody, stay away from the works of these people. You have been warned.
