    Heart Joan of Arcadia

    I can't see another post about this, so I made one. If there is one already, move it or whatever.


    I love this show. I'm a huge Michael Welch fan and he plays Luke Girardi, Joan's brother.


    Luke is such a sweet character, and he's very funny. Michael Welch said he thinks Luke is quite like Jack. He's right!


    Joan is a great character too. She's also very funny. It's a quirky little show that is well worth watching!


    The relationships are all so good...Grace and Luke, Glynis and Luke, Joan and Adam. It's brilliant! Really well written.


    Tune in!


    What does everyone else think about it?

    Luke G. may have sarcasm in common with Jack, but Luke is way more smarter than Jack could ever be, even with the Ancients download.

    Love Joan. Not half as preachy and religious as it could be, for which I am eternally grateful. And I love that God is snarky! That's my kinda god, that is.

    Stargate Re: Joan of Arcadia

    Yeah I have no religion - or if I do, I don't know it - and I was worried it would be too Touched By An Angel but its a great show. I love it! Not to say TBAA is bad...it's just not my cup of tea. Although I have been known to watch it for ALEXIS CRUZ!

    Yeah, Luke is the sole reason I watch JoA (and God being snippy). I have a thing for the genius people of TV, as you can tell from my avatar choice. ^.^

    I remember when they re-aired the SG-1 episode with Clone!Jack. I was miffed the entire episode, thinking "Lord, I know him from somewhere!" Then Mom walked in the room, watched for 15 minutes and pointed out that it was Luke. That was so cool. ^.^

    Yeah, I like the fact this show has pain and suffering. This show was my obsession a few months ago before I switched to Stargate after the season ended. I MAY get back into it in the 2nd season depending on how they head the show out. I dunno if they'll introduce The Devil but that question about evil keeps getting brought up again, and it's hard to just brush aside. The show is obviously meant to be universally spiritual and appeal to a wide variety of beliefs. But as time goes on, they will have to narrow some things down -- it's obvious, for example, that this God is a liberal one who is alright with tattoos and piercings.

    Lucia, you like genius characters too?? LOL me too! I find most of them to be portrayed shoddily though -- I didn't care too much for Wesley Crusher and Doogie Howser, for example. But from personal experience, I can say that Michael Welch as Luke is spot-on and very believable.

    Doogie Howser, haha, i saw im in this movie, Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, he was a horny dude, haha, not a pg kind of character, haha...

    I agree, JoA is a universal show, because Joan herself in the show didn't seem all that religious before God told her what to do.

    I saw Joan of Arcadia for the first time today - I've been dying to see this show ever since I heard Michael Welch was in it.
    RTÉ started showing it today, and I'm very happy about it - it seems like a good show, and I've heard nothing but good things about it so far....

    I like Joan of Arcadia a lot, too. My only gripe is the translation of the title that the network airing it has decided to use over here, but that has nothing to do with the show in itself, so I digress.

    I didn't know that Michael Welch was on this show when I first started watching so when I found out I had one of those "Wait a minute, isn't that...?" - moments. I was really happy about it because I think he's very talented, and so is Amber Tamblyn, who I didn't know about before JoA. Well, they're all talented, but those two stand out, to me.

    Yes, Amber T. is gifted, only soap opera fans of General Hospital may have known her, or The Ring. I thought one episode was kind of interesting, interesting scary, where Joan was getting worries that shes really crazy then seeing/hearing God, i felt so bad for her

    Duh!

    &th Heaven is trash, and at least in Joan of Arcadia she talks back to God. &th Heaven is all lovely God bull****.
    It’s the show that doesn’t end, it goes on and on my friends, some people started watching not knowing what it was, but they will be watching forever just because it’s the show that doesn’t end…..

    Yup, Michael Welch. We recently interviewed him and he went on for five or six minutes about Joan of Arcadia starting back into production this past July. Regretfully I have not caught a single episode, but most certainly plan to this fall

    I love this show and this coming from a person who doesn't exactly have/enjoy religion. It keeps a really good balance between the reality and the whole God and religion part of it.

    7th Heaven is so fake, it's almost funny. OH No!!! I 20 year old is having sex! It's the end of the world!!!!

    I don't belive in God, but if I did I would think it's just like the one on JoA, completely pointless, and never explains anything.

    I just had a funny mental image of Michael Welch as Luke trying to explain something technical to himself as mini-Jack.

    At first Luke really bothered me because he seemed like such a sterotype of the science nerd. It was about halfway though the season before he became real. I'm not sure why.

    Chalk me up as another big fan of this show. I don't know if you can characterize the God of this television show as liberal just because one form he chose to take was a Goth.

    If God is really like the one in JoA, that would be interesting
