Joan of Arcadia. It may be the best TV Show you're not watching. Joan has a relationship with God. Taking on different personas in her life, God encourages Joan to take action, get involved, help others, and grow. It isn't ever easy, but Joan learns more about herself in the process. And that makes for good drama, and great comedy. And the secondary plotlines that wrap around her family as equally as compelling.
And it doesn't hit you over the head with any particular dogma or theology. It's just a girl and her relationship with God. And that's the beauty of Joan. You don't have to believe in God to get into this show. For God on Joan of Arcadia, isn't your typical Creator, He's more of a fellow student, mentor, and even friend who pushes at just the right time, whether you want it or not. And it asks the tough questions and finds answers in surprising places.
It's on tonight at CBS. Take a few minutes and check it out. I guarantee you, you'll get sucked in. And before you know it, you'll have finished watching another great show NUMB3RS, as well.
One good for the heart, one great for the head. And BOTH terrific shows.
ps - And if you fall in love with Joan, you can catch up by getting Season 1 on DVD.
