    A wall-to-wall weepfest.
  2. So, yeah, Three Wishes will leave your heartstrings over-fondled. But if you can get past that... it's also one of the most interactive TV shows around. [4 Nov 2005, p.63]

    Three Wishes is about sowing seeds of kindness that blossom into a garden of good feeling, but it can feel like a flower show dusted with endless sprayings of industrial fertilizer. [31 Oct 2005, p.39]

    The show admirably shakes up these lives and implores people to envision improvements, but much of these benefits could be accomplished without such a benefactor swooping into town.

    Three Wishes is a veritable showcase for corporate largesse, and oh yes, self-promotion.

    I'll give the show credit; it did make me think what I would ask if granted three wishes. Interestingly, all three involved the flesh of Amy Grant being devoured by rabid weasels.

    I have been telling everyone what a great show this is! I really like the fact that the whole community usually benefits from one of the wishes. Someone told me this show was cancelled - I hope not!!!!! Expand

    Grant is a superstar of apparently genuine compassion.

    This show is to Christianity what Velveeta is to Vermont Cheddar.
