p “God’s Favorite Idiot” (Netflix)

In interesting John from Cincinnati (2007) confused God befriends Me (2018), series whose heroes are on a mission to spread the holy word on Earth – seriously or not – rarely lasts more than a season. God’s Favorite Idiot there should be no exception to the rule. It shows Clark, a courageous office worker chosen by God to save mankind. Ben Falcone, creator and lead role in this comedy with bizarre tones, brings it a pretty clumsy sweetness. Unfortunately, the difference in the loud explosion of Melissa McCarthy, his wife in town, didn’t work. Instead of laughing, we are easily offended.

Ultra agrees though obsolete, consciousness is complete in the making Be Elizabeth a format matter, without much interest. ML

There is not a single weed that grows from the manicured lawn in this world where even depressed teenagers are extremely photogenic. The public under the age of 15 is likely to find this young and handsome bluette something to entertain themselves between two snacks. But it’s hard to see the slightest artistic quality under the anesthetic pop soundtrack of this formatted product, which will pass. Dawson for a spin-offEuphoria. PL
