    Season eight of Touched By an Angel once more finds Heaven being represented on Earth by angelic caseworker Monica (Roma Downey), her supervisor Tess (Della Reese), and angel-in-training Gloria (Valerie Bertinelli). This season finds Andrew (John Dye), hitherto the gentle, self-effacing Angel of Death, taking a larger role in the proceedings (and sometimes being spared the necessity of "collecting" souls) when he is himself promoted to "caseworker" status. Among those benefiting from the angels' divine intervention this season are an aspiring ballplayer who must learn to forgive his domineering father in order to achieve spiritual success; a habitually unlucky-in-love young woman whose new, "perfect" beau is unexpectedly killed; a condemned prisoner whose chances of entering Heaven are endangered by his irrational hatred of his mother; a young boy who reacts to disturbing changes in his life by experimenting with dangerous drugs; and the owner of a small cable TV station who feels hopeless because he's made all the "wrong" decisions in life. This last-named character is played by Ernest Borgnine, just one of season eight's multitude of guest stars: others include Angela Lansbury, Luther Vandross, Doris Roberts, Debbie Reynolds, and Hal Linden.

      All seasons of this show were excellent. It was a "do not miss" show every Sunday night. My Mom and I loved this show, so I bought all the seasons so we can enjoy them again. The addition of Valerie Bertinelli as the new angel Gloria was a wonderful addition to an already excellent cast. The one specific show I do remember from this season was the one called "A Winter Carol" which was a story about a town dealing with the loss of one of their own on 9/11. A very moving episode.
