User Reviews

It was the best series on television
5 November 2005 | by burnsb43See all my reviews

The writing was wonderful -- and each episode had a 'moment of grace' that blew me away each time it happened. Most people didn't get to see the show because it was moved around constantly and then was pulled off the air. But those of us who have seen and loved it - would do ANYTHING to get a DVD release.

Churches across the country would use it for adult discussion groups.

I saw two of the unaired episodes at the St Francis Xavier - the church that the show was modeled after. The last episode took place on the Easter Vigil. In fact the writing of the series was designed to follow the liturgical year.

If it were for sale, I would consider purchasing it and trying to release it myself.
