Perfect, interesting, beautiful, sad and inspiring first episode with amazing guests
27 June 2009 | by igoatabaseSee all my reviews

Season 1 was so great that I hadn't any expectations for the second. I just knew its first episode would be perfect. In fact I didn't even miss The Cleaner because once its spirit has blessed you then you can't feel alone anymore. William, his friends and family become part of the many things you require to overcome your daily problems. The episodes can be seen as real life events that grow on you and affect your life in good ways. Watching Hello America I exactly felt the same way. First beside the usual casting, Benjamin Bratt and Amy Price-Francis, there were three exceptionally talented guest stars : Whoopi Goldberg, Jayne Brook and Gary Cole. As often the story their characters were involved in felt very real and you could easily relate to them. Their relationships with William were also quite interesting and in most of the scenes you could feel how authentic the acting was and how genuine the profiles were. One minute you'll feel as happy as one character, the next you'll probably turn into tears. It's a lot about controlling emotions and better understanding life to feel less miserable. Yes because when it comes to happiness William is convinced that you can't reach heaven the easy way. But it's not like if he knew everything, the contrary. He always question his believes and consider his decisions under different lights to avoid reproducing the same mistakes over and over. For example this episode was a lot about focusing on your loved ones instead of being selfish. So the contents was deep but the production quality was also high-end.
