Doug and Lexy Monroe are a newlywed couple who lost their lives in an airplane crash. Immediately after they arrive on the 13th floor of a hotel (a ghost floor, because the hotels only have 12), where Mr. Shepherd explains that because of an accidental jurisdiction crossing between Heaven's supervisors, they must return to Earth to help people until Mr. Shepherd's bosses decide whether they go to Heaven. Meanwhile, their souls will live this test of time, both will live on the 13th floor. Mr. Shepherd will supervise Doug and Lexy on their different mission, hoping they will do well enough to go to Heaven.Written by
I was able to get copies of eight episodes recently. It's not hard to understand why this one flopped -- it was desperately in need of better writers. The plots were full of holes and too often strayed in the direction of the corny. And Ricardo Montalban is not a favorite of mine, though I suppose he did his best with what he was given.
However, the show definitely had its upside as well. The two main characters were thoroughly likable and the concept was intriguing (there are far worse ways to spend the afterlife than hanging out in a nice hotel suite with John Schneider, after all :-) ). Schneider and Melinda Clarke had great chemistry, and their romantic scenes were always the highlight. They convincingly played that rarity on TV, a fun and passionate married couple. For that alone, I wish the show could have found some better writers and lasted longer.
(By the way, watch for Elly Schneider, John's wife, in a small role as a woman being counseled in "The Badge." She does a very good job!)
