So this 'God Friended Me' came on after '60 Minutes,' I didn't shut t off. Suddenly they're talking about the Golden Ratio, part of their mystery for this weeks' show. They thin there's a clue in a tour, 'Seeing the universe through Fibonacci's eyes.' Dang, I think this is just the alternate reality I was meant to live in.
Oh, but I guess I should be careful to not give you the idea it's any good. The worst part is the typically forced interracial relationship, as usual they cast two actors who don't belong together and are barely aware of each other in the scenes where they're supposed to be hanging by a thread. I think the most appropriate moment came when when the guest who'd seen some 3 minutes of them in a scene suddenly bursts forth with "Can I ask why (You're not together)?" and the woman responds "Isn't it obvious?" Yes, it is obvious there's no chemistry, no chance, only pain and suffering in the audience could result from ramming this down our throats, but of course this is what Hollywood wants. So if you watch the show, you endure the miscast pairing playing the tantalizingly close game that works with the right cast on, say, 'Friends' but will fail with the wrong casting on 'God Friended Me.'
If you know 'Firefly,' you know the botched interracial marriage that played a role in killing the show. When they tried to reboot a few years later the mismatched couple was no longer married. The matchup in 'God Friended Me' is almost as inappropriate as the one in 'Firefly.'
Any sufficiently advanced technology is INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM MAGIC!
