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.

Critic Reviews for God Friended Me Season 1

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (13)

With its shiny, colorful exteriors and bathed-in-light church sequences, there's a glossy sheen to much of God Friended Me. The test going forward is if it's willing to dig beneath it.

Top Critic

Setting aside a glib and emotionally manipulative launch, of all the This Is Us wannabes (Manifest, A Million Little Things, New Amsterdam) in the 2018 fall lineup, God Friended Me may stand the best chance of success.

Top Critic

Based on the title alone, I was fully prepared to despise this show. But it's actually a bit of alright for a network spin on religious querying... Yes, it's all hokey, and yet the premiere holds some promise as a thoughtful feel-good drama.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

The show's intentions are clear but the plot doesn't give the characters enough room to grow into fully-realized individuals.

Nov 24, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

I know this sounds ridiculous, but thanks in no small part to the chemistry of the cast, it comes across as mostly sweet.

Oct 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Sweet, wholesome drama about faith and charity.

Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

One day, the instantly likable, impeccably charming Brandon Michael Hall will land a series worthy of him. God Friended Me is not that series.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

While God Friended Me does sometimes stray into saccharine-sweet, Touched By An Angel-type territory... it doesn't overstay its welcome and seems to know when to dial it back and inject some levity into the proceedings.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe it's Touched by an Angel 2.0: Poked by a Deity.

Oct 11, 2018 | Full Review…

It [does not] matter that the show is very badly made drama. What matters is that it puts God back on prime-time TV. That makes good business sense and it's politically savvy.

    Best show in a long long time! Love the season 1 finale ending!. Can not wait for Season 2 to air.
  • May 26, 2019
    This show is what TV needs! It tackles tough conversations, but does it in an uplifting way. It's great to watch with family, or just to help put life in prospective. This is a refreshing show from some of the other nosie out there. Also, very well casted
  • Apr 24, 2019

  • Apr 21, 2019
    Excellent show with great story line. A breath of fresh air in an Age permitted by a lot of weak junk shows. This one stands out.
  • Apr 21, 2019
    enjoy the show very much. Not perfect. but sweet without sappy
  • Apr 19, 2019
    Good funny heart warming series
  • Apr 16, 2019
    When I first saw the title, I thought it could be a promising series. Violett Beane, Brandon Micheal Hall and couple of the cast were good but that wasn't enough to cover the cheap writing. As an Network engineer, the scenes with the "Matrix" hacking didn't help.
  • Apr 14, 2019
    Well written and acted. Underrated show.
  • Apr 10, 2019
    My wife and I enjoyed the show. Very well written and researched out.
