| Amen! Amen! Amen!
Amen was a good sitcom. It was set in a Protestant Church led by Sherman Hemsley's character. The show had a stellar cast including Jester Hairston, Roz Ryan and Barbara Montgomery as sisters which was truly believable, Clifton Davis as the new pastor and the love of the head minister's daughter played by Anna Maria Horsford. After a while, you began to believe that this environment existed. It was set in Philadelphia which was a change of pace from New York City. Amen and 227 were usually aired on Saturday nights before Golden Girls. Amen was a well-written, acted show. It was the kind of church that I wished I belong too at times. It also showed that Sherman Hemsley was talented to hold his own show as well besides being best known as George Jefferson. He will always be George to us but we have to acknowledge that the Jeffersons did move on and prospered as well and rightfully so.
