What I’m Watching: God Friended Me (Season Premiere)

God Friended Me: Season 2, Episode 1 “Joy” (B-)

I’m checking in to the second season of this show even though I still don’t think it’s terribly good, but rather because others in my life enjoy watching it and so I’ve decided to keep it up too. Its characters are in very different places than they were back in season one, and it’s going to have a modified rhythm as a result. I’m still pretty appalled by just how pushy Miles is in every single situation, and it’s a wonder that someone hasn’t either called the cops on him and his invasive crew or, in the case of one very dedicated member of the military, dealt with his unwelcome presence in a physical manner. Obviously, Joy was going to turn out to be a much better person than she let on, and Miles needs a partner with Cara over in Paris and Rakesh more focused on his actual work duties. Cara finding her mentor again only to be chewed out because she’s associated with Simon, who was indeed a terrible person back in the day, was a sentimental moment turned into yet another mystery, which suggests that the God account was responsible for bringing her to New York and not someone she knew sending her a message on Facebook. Arthur not being ready to move was understandable, and buying a house that he and Trish were supposed to look at together seemed like one hell of a dramatic overcorrection, at the very least that he and his son are both big on broad gestures that might be worthy of a second thought in hindsight.
