It's been a bit of a slow start to the year, TV-wise. Most shows have only just returned from a production break. And "FBI," the third season of "This is Us" and the buddy-cop offering "Bulletproof" have been getting viewers to gleefully tune in.
I found myself drawn to "God Friended Me" while browsing through my options on DStv CatchUp.
Admittedly, it was the Facebook association that influenced my viewing choice from a catalogue saturated with gritty crime dramas, poignant family dramas, reflective home-grown offerings and refreshing comedies - and a few obscure shows.
Mark Zuckerberg couldn’t have asked for better publicity.
"God Friended Me" is akin to a hybrid of "Early Edition," "Person of Interest" and "Touched by an Angel".
