Very interesting & a totally understandable concept, God, Satan, & Bob in the middle between good & evil. Everyday relational situations occur when Bob, trying to make the right decision, is caught in the middle by a convincing devil on one hand & God on the other. Bob has been chosen by the devil to either save or destroy mankind through his actions. Many times all three hang out & party together making it even more difficult for Bob to choose wisely & act accordingly. Somehow it always works out for the best & the three continue on their separate ways until the next episode/test.
This DVD is getting more & more scarce. I wish I would have bought more when I bought this one!
Kids think it's a cute program but be aware of some provocative adult situations.
One of the most underrated tv shows of all time. Still stands up after elapsed time. Voices by James Garner (Rockford Files), French Stewart (3rd Rock from the Sun), Alan Cummings (Spy Kids), and many more marvelous voices.The episode with Martha Stewart alone is worth the price. Many subtle jokes and insights that take more than one watching to catch. I especially liked the true-to-life teenage girl character. Laugh out loud funny!
I think the script is so well written for "Rockford" James Garner , it seems he wrote it! And the Devil is so Human (as is God) it is Reality Cartoons ! Bob is good too, but God is the Star and that is why his name is first in the title. I am a 54 yr. old cartoon fanatic, I collect mostly pre WW 2 era cartoons going all the way back to the first (Winsor Mcay). This is my new favorite and will remain a favorite along with Duckman, Mission Hill,Oblongs, Rex The Runt,. These are the modern toons I like. The older are Flip the Frog by UB Eworks (Creator of Micky Mouse) and Max Flescher ( Betty Boop). and dont forget Bosco, Willy Wopper, and Van Beuren toons. Greg Chick AKA Ramonas Plumber
I briefly remember this series on television. It sadly did not last that long. This show has an amazing cast of characters. God, a Jerry Garcia-esque wisecracking deity, voiced wonderfully by James Garner. Who did almost a great a job that Morgan Freeman did in Bruce Almighty. The Devil, voiced by Alan Cumming, is a loveable troublemaker and the banter between him and God is some of the best dialogue of the show. Then there's Bob... As average a joe that you can find. If he's not griping about his job, he is dealling with his unbearably caustic teenage daughter who hates her life or his off the wall, likes to get into his own kind of trounble, 9 year old son. By his side is his loving and very understanding wife. I mean she would have to be when you have been chosen as the newest prophet for God. It is the age old story... God and the devil make a wager. God is giving the Earth one last chance for survival. If one man can prove to God that the Earth is worth keeping around. He will... He lets the Devil choose this man... Bob Allman. This show is a funny and witty look at what it would be like if even with all the problems your life can hand you... you have to deal with all the problems God and the Devil have too.
