I was forced to watch because a relative of mine is on the show. I thought it was OK.
I could have done without the religious messages, especially the implication that if you don’t believe in god you’re automatically a boozed up, sex crazed, short-fused violent lunatic (or a child rapist, since he didn’t believe in god either.)
But the religious message is the essential point and premise of the show, isn’t it?
I didn’t get the implication that the show was trying to preach like that, it just looked to me like it was telling one person’s story.
Yeah, her behavior definitely seemed over-the-top.
It kinda bugged me that the angel’s name was Earl, which started me thinking about the other show “My Name is Earl”, in which a guy tries to become a better person, and I started thinking about the similar nature of these shows. It took me out of the show, because I was thinking about this stuff instead of paying attention to the story.
I’ll give the show a couple more tries. If it’s clever, I’ll stick around.
But will she continue to share dreams with the Lifer (Deather?)? Is he a regular character? Will he help her solve cases? I’m going to give it a couple more tries, but so far, it’s falling short of her “it’s unexpected” claims in the commercials.
