What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 1, Episode 10 “Coney Island Cyclone” (B-)

As this show goes on, it continues to showcase its well-meaning protagonist going to extraordinarily lengths to butt into other people’s lives when they really don’t want him pushing. Asking his father about a member of his church felt particularly intrusive, and you could tell that the only reason Arthur shared details with his son was because he wants to build their relationship back up. Miles really is a do-gooder, offering to pay for the perfume that some girl, who turned out to be Aaron’s daughter, had tried to shoplift without realizing that it was going to cost him $125 plus tax. I guess that Team God Account doesn’t actually spend all that much on their endeavors since it usually involves running around New York City and looking for people, but you have to assume that they’re all out-of-pocket expenses given that Cara’s a reporter and Miles runs his own podcast. Cara breaking up with Eli because she didn’t feel the right way about him is a positive step on the path towards the eventual relationship between her and Miles, but he’s still head over heels for someone else, which is a problem. I didn’t recognize Parminder Nagra from “Alcatraz” and “ER” as Pria, the new contact who used to know this man that might have created the God account, somehow waiting for Miles to come along and be its proper vessel. We’ll see if they get closer to him as this show still has one episode left in 2018 before a very short hiatus.
