What I’m Watching: God Friended Me

God Friended Me: Season 2, Episode 3 “From Paris with Love” (B-)

This show is pretty much all about suspension of disbelief, and that’s mostly supposed to relate to the God account and whether it’s actually an act of divine intervention or just someone working with technology to achieve the seemingly impossible. Yet it also has to do with the funds possible to cover all of this, which allow those working with full-time jobs to leave them all the time to be able to pursue friend suggestions and other clues, and for Miles to jet across the ocean to Paris to check something out before deciding to come home shortly afterward with Cara in tow. Sure, Simon and his bank account do help to offset the lack of logic, but it still has me scratching my head. I also had expected that Sarah might eventually suggest that she wouldn’t try to enforce the ticket she had given to Joy, though I’d say she deserved it for her horrifically impolite response to seeing the officer ticket her car for a legitimate reason. Helping Sarah to feel less burdened by the weight of a decision she had to make and getting Zeke to be able to play Rakesh’s game was sweet, about on par with this show’s usual sentimentality and frequent attempts at heartwarming storylines. At least Miles and Cara were honest with each other and seem to be okay with where they stand at the moment, though returning to New York together could make that more difficult. Simon and Annie are indeed an unlikely professional couple, and something tells me a romance is just around the corner.
