News & Interviews for Living Biblically: Season 1
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.
The premise promises something unusual, but the labored execution and frantic performances are so sitcom familiar.
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.
For a show that strives to be unique, this comedy still seems very safe.
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.
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.
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.
Book adaptation disappoints but brings faith to forefront.
By being as safe as possible, Living Biblically offends the senses as broadly as its humor aims.
Audience Reviews for Living Biblically: Season 1
Sep 16, 2018Funny! Couldnt stop laughing. Loved the characters and the message. Family friendly and refreshing. Well done.
Aug 27, 2018Binged watch the entire show one day whilst in a somber mood and honestly found the series engaging, uplifting and simplistically funny :) Whilst Im very aware this isnt the comedy show of the century, in some cases the awkward jokes that fell flat or the odd plot aided the show in becoming a show Id definitely re watch on days I want to watch a stupid comedy show to raise my spirits. Its a show where I dont have to know everything to get it the joke and that even if its not comedy genius even its purely unfunny moments, were so unfunny that they themselves became funny :)
Jul 21, 2018could have been better
May 14, 2018luv this show makes me happy look forward to this every week
May 09, 2018Haven't laughed this much in a long time. Topics covered were relatable to anyone that has tried to apply the Bible to his/her life. Sad it was taken off the air, but not surprised. Most TV execs are only interested in pushing progressive shows.
Apr 10, 2018I think it's well written and funny. Sadly... It won't make it to another season...
Apr 09, 2018I've enjoyed the show. Yes, it's flawed, but it is also sweet and makes one think about how we choose to live. The example of someone taking a difficult stand, without support from friends or family, and sticking with it can be applied to so many life situations.
Mar 27, 2018While the show does tend to play it safe with the types of comedy it sticks to, the concept is fresh, the jokes come from a new angle, and the rabi and the priest could have their own show. It definitely has promise that I hope it gets to fulfill
Mar 26, 2018As a pastor, I find it refreshing that this topic is being handled so well. Other than episode 2 (which contained a ridiculous amount of cussing), I think the writers are tying to explore the theme honestly. Well done.
Mar 24, 2018Canned laughter assault. I did not last four minutes. It's offensive, not to faith but to the ears. (And here they would most likely have inserted some canned laughter) Do they have a surplus of canned laughter they need to use before the end of Spring? (Again) Love Big Bang Theory so much I'm able to overhear the canned laughter, however with Living Biblically they keep coming, 8 EIGHT times within the first minute. And that's why I only lasted for four minutes before I turned it on. Great idea but the constant mechanic, manic use of tinned laughter because they clearly think we are to dumb to figure out whats funny, is as... well to quote Blackadder, about as subtle as a rhinoceros horn up the backside! Door!
