Angel from Hell

"Angel from Hell" review by Suzanne 1/6/16
Airs Thursdays 9:30/8:30c on CBS

I like almost everything about this show. It could be funnier, and in a sitcom, that's not good. I think it works more as a light drama (It should be an hour instead of a half hour).  Other than that, I enjoy the show and will keep watching it. It's very cute, and the characters are very likable.

First of all, I love the cast, led by Maggie Lawson ("Psych") as Allison and Jane Lynch ("Glee") as Amy. Lawson plays a skin doctor who works with her dad. Jane plays her guardian angel.  Kevin Pollack plays her dad, Marv. He's a comedian I've admired for a very long time.

Secondly, I love any show with fantasy stuff in it, and this one has a really interesting premise. It's no "Touched by an Angel," that's for sure. Amy drinks, swears, and eats bad food. It's hard to believe that she's an angel, except that she knows all about Allison and seems to have magic of some sort.  The show keeps us guessing a little bit, though, about whether she's crazy or not. I can't wait to see more of it. The pilot was very good.

If you don't love Jane Lynch, then you probably should skip it because a lot of the show relies heavily on her character's personality, which can be abrasive (in a very different way than her character of Sue on "Glee").

If you miss Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" then you'll probably love this show!

If you missed the pilot, I urge you to watch it here or On Demand.


About Angel From Hell

ANGEL FROM HELL is a single-camera comedy about Amy, a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into the life of an organized and seemingly perfect young woman, Allison, claiming to be her “guardian angel.” Allison is an intense, driven doctor who is sure that Amy is just an inebriated, outspoken nut, until every one of her warnings proves true. Cautioned by Amy not tell anyone about her, Allison can’t discuss this over-the-top oddball with her father and business partner, Marv, a doctor who shares an office with Allison, or her younger brother, Brad, a sales rep who lives in a guest room over her garage. As Allison tries to push Amy away, Amy makes her final pitch: her sole mission is to provide Allison with helpful guidance that nudges her in the right direction in life – and it’s her final chance to prove herself as an angel. With that, Allison agrees to this unlikely relationship because maybe a weird friend is exactly what she needs… and what if Amy really is her “guardian angel”?
