Overview: The beloved series that brought a message of hope and faith to millions of viewers returns to DVD with Touched By An Angel: Family Reunion, available exclusively at Walmart.

DVD Verdict: With an all-star cast that includes Delta Burke, Randy Travis, John Schneider and even Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway, 'Touched By An Angel: Family Reunion' is a powerful feature-length TV event. Originally broadcast on March 13th, 2001 and then again the following week as a two-part episode entitled 'Shallow Water,' 'Touched By An Angel' once again proved that everybody was watching the show.
While the show has a certain degree of humor from episode to episode, the producers made the show meaningful to the problems of today's world, with each episode addressing a different and difficult topic in life's journey - ranging from gang problems to drugs to cancer to war to racism, with all giving proof in the end that God's intervention and love is always at hand for those who ask for it.
Well-known American Jazz singer and actor Della Reese is well-suited in the role of Supervisory Angel Tess, while Irish-born actor Roma Downey stars in her role as Angelic case worker Monica, who is often given a helping hand from Andrew, The Angel of Death, played consistently well by American actor John Dye.
Here in this stand-alone feature film, 'Touched By An Angel: Family Reunion, Vol. 1' this time, Monica works to guide a mourning mother (guest star Delta Burke) recover from the tragic death of her son, and in so doing, also enables her to reunite with her estranged family. Relive the uplifting message of inspiration and hope in this special TV episode, which can be purchased solely from Walmart - and even comes with a Digital Copy on VUDU! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and Beautifully Restored!
