God tells Joan that her last two years were just practice for her greatest challenge, which will be to face off against a mysterious man who, though he also talks to God, has a sinister agenda... Initially, Joan is simply curious about Ryan Hunter, the ch

OK, where do I start with this show? Hmmm? Let me start by saying that I do NOT believe in God but am open minded to the fact that there could be some type of higher power. NOW! onto this show. The show centers around a girl named Joan who can see god, but thinks she going insane to the point where therapy becomes part of her activities. God, talks to joan in the guise of MANY different people who sets her tasks in nearly EVERY episode that she must complete, most being that she has to help some unknown person. The tasks set on occasion are so funny that I found myself laughing at joan's misfortunes for some of these tasks are just rediculous, such as joining the cheer leading team, the diving team, trust me.. the tasks get even crazier. So, watching the two seasons over about 2 weeks I found the show to be lighthearted, fun, fluffy, comical, but on times.. also depressing. The show has a few episodes that are quite dark but still, kept you wanting to watch more. As stated already, I don't believe in God but I thought I'd give this show a go after reading about it from reviews people had wrote for "Ghost Whisperer", which was a great show. I got to be totally honest, I absolutely enjoyed EVERY minute of this show and I am totally glad I took the time to watch it. It's a massive shame this show was cancelled after just two seasons because the shows season 2 finale was something just, awesome. I would have loved to see where the show had gone from there and how they would have pulled off the whole battle between good and evil, as that's the sense the last few episodes of the last season gives you, that they were heading that way. Alas, the show will NEVER make a return now, especially after so many years of being off-air, it's a shame really because this show was something special AND different to what was airing at the time and even airing now, so! if your looking for something great to watch in between your other shows, I highly recommend this show, you won't be sorry.
