Joan (Amber Tamblyn) is an ordinary 16-year-old. Father Will (Joe Mantegna) is the local Arcadia police chief, mother Helen (Mary Steenburgen) is a teacher/administrator, younger brother Luke (Michael Welch) is a fellow student, and older brother Kevin (Jason Ritter, son of John Ritter) is a high school graduate who was paralyzed the year before. He used to be popular and athletic. Now he watches TV and builds models. In the pilot, God speaks to Joan for the first time, as a cute boy, and asks her to get a job. Once she's convinced He's really God, she does. Her action inspires Kevin to get one, too, and his process of rejoining the world begins.
As in Joan Osbornes theme song, "One of Us" (featured on two episodes), God will continue to appear to Joan in a variety of guises--even as a dog walker who looks like Russ Tamblyn (Amber's father). Hell often ask her to do things that make her uncomfortable, but she'll always learn from the experience and some good will always come from it. Unfortunately, she isn't able to talk to anyone about this or they'd think she was crazy, not even friends Grace (Becky Hahlstrom) or Adam (Christopher Marquette). By the season finale, faith will be replaced by doubt, setting the scene for the second season, in which Joans faith will be restored. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

|DVD for Season II??||
I read just this morning (6/11/06) in a TV column in my newspaper that Joan of Arcadia Season 2 was going to be released this September. Someone had written in and asked just this question. Hope this is helpful.

Yes, unfortunately! The reason being is because the T.V. studio's don't realize when they have a fantastic show that could teach us (the community of viewers) something more than let's say . . ."reality" T.V.. If they, meaning the T.V. execs, would pay closer attention to their fans,... Read More
