Although the product info currently states that this A&E release is Region 1, I can confirm that the discs will play on a Region 2 DVD player.
This is a warm-hearted (and sometimes unflinching) 1980's US drama series starring Michael Landon as Jonathon Smith - an Angel of mercy sent to Earth to lend a guiding hand to the troubled, and comfort to the sick. Victor French plays Jonathon's straight-talking, streetwise sidekick, Mark Gordon. While often sharing directing duties, Landon and French also share an excellent on-screen chemistry, with many philosophical conversations taking place between the two.
The thought-provoking 45 minute episodes see Jonathon using his powers of devine intervention sparingly, with warm humour running alongside the more serious aspects of the show. All in all this is wholesome entertainment, a nice series with good performances. This 6-disc boxset contains all 24, second series episodes (which includes a couple of two-part stories). The disc menu's and slim cases feature a synopsis of each episode. Picture and sound quality are not great but still OK, there are no subtitles. The extras are a commentary by Cindy Landon and producer Kent McCray on the episode "The Torch", and text biographies on Michael Landon and Victor French.
