What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 1, Episode 15 “Two Guys, a Girl, and a Thai Food Place” (C+)

I’m not sure what else anyone could have thought than that it would be a bad idea to probe where Vivian went the night before she passed out since she was obviously pursuing an illicit path that wasn’t going to be productive for the future of her relationship with Aiden. This just continues to be my number one gripe with this show, not even related to its corniness but instead to the way that Miles and Cara consider themselves so driven in a missionary-like manner to interfere in other people’s lives and to keep pushing especially when they’re told to butt out. Running into Fliss didn’t help too much in this case since she has even less tact, but at least she’s relatively charming and she believes in the idea of true love. I can’t believe it took fifteen episodes for Miles to finally ask Cara out, and the way that she responded and then showed up at his place to walk together to their date suggests that they’re headed for closeness fast, which hopefully won’t be a bad thing since they’re used to being friends. Rakesh and Jaya had no trouble reigniting their passion as soon as she arrived to surprise him, and he made one hell of a gamble by accepting Simon’s job offer under the stipulation that the entire rest of the team be relocated to New York. I like the casting of Adam Goldberg as Simon, though I wouldn’t have expected it since I don’t picture the onetime “Friends” guest star as being twenty-three hours older than Suraj Sharma, who plays Rakesh. Andrew taking Arthur’s advice is a sign of respect, but it’s going to sting even more once Arthur finds out that Andrew has known all along that he’ll be replacing his new mentor.
