Critics Consensus

A sincere and thoughtful handling of spiritual themes helps God Friended Me overcome -- and even benefit from -- its earnest approach to a potentially off-putting premise.

Audience Reviews for God Friended Me: Season 1

  • Apr 19, 2020
    Great Personable Characters. Very Light Hearted Feel Good TV Show.
  • Mar 28, 2020
    We look forward to this show airing every week! It is thought provoking, has great twists and turns and the entire concept is present day. To top it off it is funny and witty a solution oriented series the world needs now. Our family says " Awesome show"
  • Mar 11, 2020
    Interesting premise. It is funny and light-hearted at times, yet has some philosophical undertones that get you thinking.
  • Jan 28, 2020
    Great show but they do go way overboard on the inclusiveness. Obligatory gay couple black preacher, black business owner, asian IT guy, black journalist and 1 pretty white girl. I wouldn't watch it if it wasn't so damn good.
  • Jan 20, 2020
    I love the fact that it explores faith honestly and respectfully. The show is well written and the cast plays their parts perfectly. Thought provoking and entertaining.
  • Dec 30, 2019
    I absolutely love the show.. It's a great way to relax and enjoy the positivity of the show.
  • Nov 20, 2019
    Although it's a bit schmaltzy it's a pleasant watch; everyone is beautiful and the sun is always shining. Brandon Michael Hall is utterly charming as the wholesome Miles who proves that you can live a good life whether you believe in God or not. The idea of helping people you don't know is something we could all aspire to do.
  • Nov 11, 2019
    There are so many aspects of this show that I, as a Christian, simply cannot condone. But the most important message I get from this show every week is love and acceptance. It reinforces my belief that is not my job to judge. It's my job to love.
  • Oct 07, 2019
    The writers of this show DIDN'T investigate the Episcopal Church. The EC doesn't call its priests "Reverend." We say "Father or Mother" to our priests and "Brother or Sister" to our Deacons. The EC is also one of the MOST LGBTQI friendly Churches in the US, so the idea that Ali wasn't welcomed in Harlem Episcopal is ridiculous!!! The news God friendly character is annoying! If they keep this character, the show will be cancelled.

    i like the twist that they have on stories. the conflict that people find themselves struggling with. the solutions are not always rose colored stories. there is realism involved in how they wrap everything up
