What's the story?

ANGELS AMONG US is a reality show starring Rosie Cepero, a medium who is committed to passing on messages to people from the celestial world. Rosie shares messages from people who have passed but whom she believes act as guardian angels who are protecting their loved ones in the living world. The people she talks to also share their thoughts about the experience. When she's not keeping appointments to read for people or passing on messages to perfect strangers, she enjoys her time with her husband, George, her three adult sons, and Bruni, her beloved pet pig.

Is it any good?

Angels Among Us showcases Rosie Cepero's ability to engage in paranormal communication, which she claims developed when she was a small child. It also shows how she receives these messages and how their legitimacy is verified to the people she's reading for. 

Although the discussion of angels and some of Cepero's rituals reflect a Judeo-Christian faith base, the focus is mainly on spreading messages about family, love, and hope. Family time also leads to some humorous moments. It won't appeal to everyone, but for audiences who like this sort of thing, it is emotionally satisfying.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about psychic mediums. What exactly is a psychic? Why do people go to them? How has the media portrayed mediums over the years?

  • How realistic are the readings featured on this show? Do you think people who claim they can talk to the dead really have that ability, or are they just pretending?
