GOD FRIENDED ME
September 30, 2018  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 8:30 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Brian Micheal Hall of The Mayor brings his easygoing charm to this new CBS fantasy series, in which he plays an atheist who is “friended” on social media… by God. This means, I guess, that God had to register for an account – but then again, if anyone could find a way around the red tape requirements for entry… But I digress. In concept, this series isn’t far at all from Joan of Arcadia, which I watched and enjoyed. But it starred Amber Tamblyn, which helped a lot. In this series, supporting player Violett Beane, as Cara Bloom, makes a good first impression. But better, unfortunately, than this series itself, which relies on more coincidences than Charles Dickens at his most fanciful. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
