What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 1, Episode 8 “Matthew 621” (B-)

It’s strange to see Miles see a bible verse referenced and immediately be able to quote the entire thing from memory, though he really has taken a leap of faith by blindly following whatever the God account sends him and trying to help that person. He got to demonstrate to Nia just how simple the process can be by helping Blair avoid going into panic-induced labor in the elevator, but of course that wasn’t going to be the end of it. I recognized Aaron Staton from “Mad Men” as Alfie, the stepson so distraught by the way his father was unable to talk to him that he didn’t think he could be a good father. I know they’ve already come into contact with a private investigator, but I’m just waiting for the time when they end up against law enforcement officers who think that they’re either nuts or breaking the law by refusing to let up when the people that they want to help repeatedly tell them to back off. Naturally, happy endings were all around in this episode, including new romantic beginnings for Arthur, Miles, and Cara. Arthur getting up to play for someone other than his wife was understandably tough, but he did a great job and now he’s looking forward to a relationship at whatever speed with Trish. Miles and Nia are a good match, and maybe Eli is in fact right for Cara. I’m surprised that Rakesh is still trying to make it work with Jaya since I thought that he and Lucy were going to start dating soon. They’re definitely linked based on the shared surveillance of them – will it lead to something more?
