Living Biblically: Season 1 (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Living Biblically commits the cardinal TV sin of wasting the outline of an refreshingly unusual premise on broad, hammy acting and stock sitcom laughs.

Tv Season Info

Film critic Chip Curry (Jay R. Ferguson) is married to Leslie (Lindsey Kraft) and they are expecting their first child. When Chip's best friend dies, he decides to start following the Bible's teachings to the letter. Realizing that the Bible's rules don't really translate well to the modern world, he puts together a God Squad to help him live according to God's wishes. In Season 1, Rabbi Gil Ableman (David Krumholtz) and Father Gene (Ian Gomez) invite Chip not to use smartphones as it would be like worshiping false idols, to give back all the office supplies he stole from work, and they teach him the power of prayer.

Critic Reviews for Living Biblically Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

Adapted from a bestseller that's not the Bible, Living Biblically finally comes to fruition as a CBS sitcom with an abominable laugh track.

Ian Gomez and David Krumholtz have a sinfully good time playing two-thirds of a joke about a priest, a rabbi and a minister walking into a bar.

Feb 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The premise promises something unusual, but the labored execution and frantic performances are so sitcom familiar.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

For a show that strives to be unique, this comedy still seems very safe.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 2.0/4 | Full Review…

Go read Jacobs' book instead. You'll get a lot more laughs and have a better view of what it's like to live a biblical life.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Given the open-minded, constructive start the show has already made, it's not unreasonable to hope it could continue onto some firmer (and hopefully a little funnier) ground.

Mar 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Living Biblically makes an effort to bring up broader ethical teachings from Scripture-not just concepts pulled from Levitical obscurity-which could have wide appeal if the setups weren't so flat.

Mar 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Book adaptation disappoints but brings faith to forefront.

Feb 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

By being as safe as possible, Living Biblically offends the senses as broadly as its humor aims.

Feb 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Living Biblically replaces Jacobs' playfully twisted tone with expired gags about the Jonas Bothers, Twilight, and Blockbuster Video. Like a lot of latter-day network sitcoms, Biblically overstretches its premise with too-familiar settings.
