4.0 out of 5 stars The Mass Is The Message Feb. 6 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Mass is the Medium

It is difficult to believe that anybody not in love with a television series would want to buy a collection on DVD. So what does one say to shoppers who know what they are buying and why they want a souvenir in their home libraries? The passing years, however, have raised a generation, even two generations, who never saw the original broadcasts, although it is difficult to believe they missed the museum networks, too.

In 1980, the three networks aired more than a dozen cop shows, each with its gimmick to grab a share of the market. Series require five to eight regular characters to hold audience interest; count 'em on M*A*S*H, CHEERS, and STAR TREK, not to mention MELROSE PLACE. In contrast, cop shows cast the crime in the leading role. COLUMBO, for example, has only one character --- the criminal; the unflappable, unchanging lieutenant serves as mere foil. HART to HART and SIMON & SIMON play a pair as one. FATHER DOWLING, however, pirated avuncular Tom Bosley from MURDER SHE WROTE to play a well developed character interacting with a street-smart nun, played by Tracy Nelson, in conflict with the bishop, who is always worried about church attendance, and the anally correct Father Preswick, who suffers aggravated anxiety whenever Father Dowling's extra-pastoral activities disturb cleric routine. Like Hawkeye, Margaret, and Colonel Potter manage to run a field hospital between painting, moralizing, and frustrated romances, Father Dowling and his artfully dodging sidekick manage to solve emotionally complex crimes between liturgical services.

Father Dowling and the Nun finds out the truth from people who people kill at a crime. Father Dowling and the Nun lives in the church with a maid. And they also do a mass in the church all the time. It is a great T.V. Show to watch you need to see it because the truth always comes out. Francine
