    Could be good, but I won’t be watching as I’m not paying for a subscription.

    The filming looked like something I could have done. The finished product didn’t look professional, like you see on TV.

    Im all for family oriented shows…this one has some good actors…but it seems like they are reading their lines as they go…and from the brief clip the acting is a little under preforming-maybe it improves but i will pass on this one…i seen a faith produced family friendly soap years ago called Another Life-it was an ok soap-that one i gave a B for a review!!!

    Jimh I loved Another Life. Especially Terri’s sister Nancy. And Susan Scanlon made her debut on that soap. And Ione I think her name was. The black matriarch. That was back in the days when you still had characters like One Life’s Sadie Gray. That woman made a soap funeral and event to be watched for her singing lol.

    I loved Lillian Heyman as Sadie on OLTL. What a treasure she was on that show. Such a real and honest character and portayal. She sure could sing, love hearing her voice on the Broadway cast album of “70 Girls 70”

    This is definitely not for me. Sorry, but it looks poorly produced and does not look even remotely interesting at all.

    IT looks DREADFUL!

    Television’s cup runneth over as far as good quality entertainment is concerned so I don’t think there is much of a market for this drivel.
    And Antonio Sabato Junior is a terrible actor.

    Is this supposed to be a sly comedy? I’d watch it if it was on regular tv/cable.

    Being the Devil, I’m sure any comments I make about this soap would be considered “biased”…. but I fully expect it to be every bit as awful as the soap “Another Life” which aired on the Trinity Broadcasting Network back in the 80s.

    Possibly worse, if Sabato is allowed to bring his depraved political agenda into it…..

    hi Boes ..
    wow! then we’re bonding and soon to be besties :) LOL
    I even agreed with me on that post lol ..

    I wouldn’t have thought that Donna Mills would need the dough to star in this crap. Green screen background for the skies and even looks like green screen for that bedroom scene.

    It’s sad too because I’m not sure how a soap opera will work in a Christian based production.

    Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Michael Swan deserve on another for their extreme right-wing theories. I would never watch this because I know what these two guys stand for. Poor Donna. Who blackmailed her into doing this?

    A “faith-based” soap? Sex, betrayal, crime, divorce, scandal, blackmail…errrr…can they include ANY of these in a “faith-based” show? Like, the stuff soaps are made of?

    Rumor has it that Pat Robertson does a nude scene, full frontal, in the second episode, all for the eternal glory.
