Storyline

Following Kevin's attempted suicide, Amy, his widowed twin sister, a tenured aeronautical engineering professor who does contract work for the UN and the US military on the side, invites him to live at the family home in Taylor, Texas until he feels well enough to be on his own again, and has gotten his life back on track, he now an emotional mess of a person. The one person who does not welcome Kevin with open arms is Amy's teenaged daughter Reese, who has been struggling since her father John's death and who cannot forgive Kevin in his selfishness in not being there for Amy in her time of grief, Kevin too preoccupied with what was then his seemingly successful life. His life in Taylor may be all the more difficult in running into old friends, acquaintances and colleagues, such as his high school girlfriend, Kristin, who happens to be one of Reese's teachers. Shortly after Kevin's arrival in town, thirty-five meteor strikes occur within a twenty-four hour period around the world. ... Written by Huggo

Fun, but I feel like it's kinda been done before
4 October 2017 | by jennincincySee all my reviews

I saw the previews for this show and thought it looked cute, so I watched the pilot. I found myself feeling like this reminded me of "Oh God" with George Burns, although the humor wasn't quite as good, but that's to be expected being that George Burns was a stellar comedian. Another reviewer wrote that this show is attempting to appeal to religious people. I have to disagree. First of all, I enjoyed it and I'm not religious in any way, shape, or form. In addition, from what I can tell, the show lacks the sappiness of traditional "God" shows (like "Saved by an Angel," or whatever it was called), at least so far.

As far as the acting goes, it's quite good. Everyone on the show clearly knows what they're doing.

The only criticism I really have is that I still don't completely understand what Kevin's role is supposed to be, but maybe that's intentional.

All in all, I highly recommend that you give it a try.
