TV show description:
This drama revolves around teenager Joan Girardi (Amber Tamblyn) who begins to see and speak with God, who appears in the form of seemingly random and unlikely people.

Joan is asked by God to perform tasks that initially appear to be trivial but are often the cause of significant positive results.

Life gets very complicated as she keeps these conversations a secret from her family like her police detective father, Will (Joe Mantegna); art-teacher mother, Helen (Mary Steenburgen); 16-year-old science-geek brother, Luke (Michael Welch); and her paraplegic, newspaper-writer brother, Kevin (Jason Ritter).

At school, Joan’s friends include boyfriend Adam Rove (Christopher Marquette) and rebellious Grace Polik (Becky Wahlstrom).

    i’m still sad this show ended. maybe they could right a book to finish it instead? i’ll literally take anything.

    Wow! I really enjoyed this show. As the other comments note. so disappointing to have no resolution. Why do all the good ones die first?!

    I fill that this show was super the acting and the stories where writen very well. It does not make sence to cut a show that has so much meening and reated G.

    This is the show I referenced in regard to the Sarah Connor Chronicles last episode (or potential last episode). This was a VERY well written and plotted show, and it really made people think every time they watched it. And just when the 2nd season got really interesting, and you thought they were going to really take the show in a deeper direction, it was cancelled, with no resolution at all. I don’t know what’s worse–the fact that it was cancelled at all, or the fact that no other network picked it up and kept it going. Come on Sci-Fi–you keep running the episodes. Why not start the show up again? You keep putting on those inane “Sci-Fi Movies” that make no sense and that no one watches, so obviously, you’re not as worried about numbers as someone like CBS. Why not take a chance on something worthwhile for once? You did it with Battlestar Galactica, which turned out to be a ratings bonanza. Joan Of Arcadia was getting ready to cross a really big threshold. You should have picked up that ball that CBS dropped and ran with it. You missed out on scoring a touchdown.
