Critic 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 (27) | 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…

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…

It's a comical twist -- one that we open with welcome arms.

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | 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.
