Doug Monroe (John Schneider) was an egotistical pitcher for the Florida Marlins who was newly married to sexy Lexy Kitteridge (Melinda Clarke) in this syndicated fantasy series.
Taking off in Doug’s small private plane immediately after the wedding, they indulged in a little sex in the sky and, thus distracted, crashed into the side of the San Antonio Marriott and were killed.
That should have been the end of it, but not with Mr Shepherd (Ricardo Montalban) around.
Before they could get into Heaven they had to earn their wings by helping other people on earth, and he would be their guide. Doug and Lexy were not too enthusiastic about this but, given the alternatives, decided to go along.
The ghostly lovebirds “lived” in a luxury suite on the phantom thirteenth floor of the hotel into which they had crashed.
They influenced people by a sort of emotional osmosis and at times they became visible (but only when they were angry and not pure of heart).
Although the characters were likeable, the plots were full of holes and the writing was uniformly corny.
