What a frustrating show. There was a fair bit of it I really liked:
-The premise (alien/Jesus shows up in cynical modern America… what happens?)
-Some of the dialog
-Many of the characters (all of the Yosts, Bill, and especially John)
-The idea that a good way to spread a Messianic word would be to get a marketing company like Stinkweed involved
But watching the show felt like work. It felt like a chore. The dialog was SO difficult to follow, and there were all these extra characters and storylines that interfered with things rather than helping. Was the show made better because the hotel owner, the lawyer, the doctor, the hawaiian gangster and his sidekick, the woman in the restaurant, the hacker and the hotel manager were all characters? Not to mention the chinaman, the other guy with the chinaman, and the car salesman, all of whom showed up in the last episode?
It was like, whenever anything started happening that I actually enjoyed, or that got any momentum at all, the show would be like “aw, HELL, no, there ain’t going to be any actual like PLOT progression. Screw that. Here’s a freaky scene involving characters you don’t care about”. I got a vague scent of uber-elitism out of it. Ie, “did you ever enjoy any normal TV show for any normal TV-show-enjoying reason? Well, then, we’ll make sure you don’t enjoy THIS, because THIS is way too good for you”, or something like that.
