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
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
