God Friended Me

Recommended Posts

Coming this fall to CBS. (trailers & featurettes at the link)

I reserve judgment.

Originally, I thought this would be a 30-minute sitcom format, but it is an hour-long light drama. After five episodes, the clearest TV ancestors are Touched by an Angel--but the "angels" are ordinary humans, at least one of whom claims to be an atheist, and "God" is a mysterious Facebook friend who suggests other "friends" who need help--or Joan of Arcadia, with its skeptical but good-hearted protagonist directed by an enigmatic, multi-faced divinity--if Joan had had a team of friends/colleagues. The show, so far, avoids the sentimentality of Touched, but doesn't have the depth of Joan.

So far, the greatest strength of God Friended Me is the cast, especially Brandon Micheal Hall as the main character Miles and Joe Morton as Miles's father Pastor Finer. The two main female characters, Cara and Jaya, look too much alike.
