The Lady (2019)Any show out there right now that deals with ordinary people coming together to support one another to deal with the good and the downsides to life that can overpower the best of us at times deserve a 10+Violett Beane and Brandon Micheal Hall in From Paris with Love (2019)The show raises questions to support all sides to the major questions we all face in life. has fantastic script writing in showing the benefits of working together to achieve a common goal and the downfalls of not working together. It’s all about choice and how each one of those choices has a different outcome. is on the cutting edge of showing how people who thought they were chosen to step forward to support another, end up receiving more support from the one they thought they were helping. extraordinary work bringing in THE FIBONACCI SPIRAL to help bridge the gap between non-believers, believers and most importantly the ones on the sidelines who are waiting for that clear sign that it’s time to enter the game of life.Violett Beane and Brandon Micheal Hall in All Those Yesterdays (2019)It’s the messages within the messages that really draws you in. Where you see it doesn’t matter if you believe in god or not, if it’s a great script that has been carried out to perfect by the actors or not….what matters is that you show up with an open mind like a true friend who’s willing to listen, who’s willing to take a step back and fully view another point of view without judgment before making a decision to speak up or not.The Greater Good (2019)Watch every episode to really see the difference from episode 1 to episode in how the actors are becoming more in tune with their character and their characters connection to the bigger picture, to you. One of the best shows out there, proving that you don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference and that difference can be as simple as showing up, to asking another person to show up with you.The Last Grenelle (2019)This shows about you, me…..ordinary people having faith that we can make a difference no matter what our or their stance is on religion or beliefs, or how we were raised or what we did yesterday, what matters is that we have this moment to decide to just step forward to be there as a friend, whether it’s the first time we’re meeting or the 1,000 time. give it a 10+ stepping forward to show that everyone has a gift to share, that everyone’s deserves to be added as a friend. Sadly after Season its been cancelled, this show will truly be missed

Violett Beane and Brandon Micheal Hall in God Friended Me (2018)At first blush, “God Friended Me” is an easy target for mockery. Its title promises something wacky and miraculous, with a bonus social- media tie-in for relevance. In actuality, the new CBS drama is almost too earnest to ridicule, wrapping its absurd premise with the kind of moralistic sincerity that has fueled broadcast network dramas for decades. It’s “Touched by an Angel” re-imagined for the millennial generation.Suraj Sharma, Violett Beane, and Brandon Micheal Hall in God Friended Me (2018)When a mysterious “God” Facebook account friends skeptical atheist Miles (Brandon Micheal Hall) out of nowhere, he’s shaken to find that it seems to anticipate the future by encouraging him to help people who need it, whether they know it or not. Complicating matters is the fact that Miles is also trying to sell a podcast about atheism in which he’d challenge people of faith on their views. This was complex enough before, especially since Miles’ father (Joe Morton) is a reverend who can’t understand his son’s insistence on preaching a lack of gospel. But now, with this seemingly all-knowing Facebook account watching and trying to dictate his every move, Miles finds himself more confused than ever. Violett Beane in God Friended Me (2018)In the attempt to flesh out Miles and his twenty-something world, creators Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt throw in as many millennial buzzwords as they can. Miles’s co-worker and best friend Rakesh (Suraj Sharma) complains about dating apps, insisting that “no one uses Tinder anymore” with a knowing eye roll on a show that nevertheless insists twenty-somethings are still avid users of Facebook. Miles is trying to sell his podcast to SiriusXM under the moniker “The Millennial Prophet.” And by the time the God account points him in the direction of Cara (Violett Beane), a writer who hasn’t turned in one of her signature viral think pieces for six weeks but somehow maintains a corner office, the show has itself a whole grab bag of millennial clichés that never add up to anything especially believable.Violett Beane and Brandon Micheal Hall in God Friended Me (2018)It’s telling that even on a series featuring a possibly omniscient being nudging people to do good through the insidious act of suggesting friends on Facebook, the most confusing aspect of “God Friended Me” is the question of who, exactly, it’s for. God Friended Me is able to  convince viewers to get past its premise and develop the wholehearted drama fueling it, which helps the series find its way. with a second season ordered it will interesting where the show will go.
