Living Biblically: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Living Biblically: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Living Biblically commits the cardinal TV sin of wasting the outline of an refreshingly unusual premise on broad, hammy acting and stock sitcom laughs.

Tv Season Info

Film critic Chip Curry (Jay R. Ferguson) is married to Leslie (Lindsey Kraft) and they are expecting their first child. When Chip's best friend dies, he decides to start following the Bible's teachings to the letter. Realizing that the Bible's rules don't really translate well to the modern world, he puts together a God Squad to help him live according to God's wishes. In Season 1, Rabbi Gil Ableman (David Krumholtz) and Father Gene (Ian Gomez) invite Chip not to use smartphones as it would be like worshiping false idols, to give back all the office supplies he stole from work, and they teach him the power of prayer.

Critic Reviews for Living Biblically: Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

Adapted from a bestseller that's not the Bible, Living Biblically finally comes to fruition as a CBS sitcom with an abominable laugh track.

Top Critic

Ian Gomez and David Krumholtz have a sinfully good time playing two-thirds of a joke about a priest, a rabbi and a minister walking into a bar.

February 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The premise promises something unusual, but the labored execution and frantic performances are so sitcom familiar.

February 22, 2018 | Full Review…

For a show that strives to be unique, this comedy still seems very safe.

November 20, 2018 | Rating: 2.0/4 | Full Review…

Go read Jacobs' book instead. You'll get a lot more laughs and have a better view of what it's like to live a biblical life.

April 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Given the open-minded, constructive start the show has already made, it's not unreasonable to hope it could continue onto some firmer (and hopefully a little funnier) ground.
