The show where we dust off the old video player, and go on a journey to look at the good and bad movies of yesteryear.
1977 cinema was dominated by Star Wars (later renamed Episode IV: A New Hope) but for a brief week, it was displaced off the top spot by the fantasy comedy, “Oh, God!”. This movie takes heaven's customer service to a whole new level. Imagine a mild-mannered supermarket manager, Jerry Landers (played by John Denver), who gets the divine equivalent of a surprise visit from the cable guy. Except, it's not the cable guy; it's none other than George Burns playing the Almighty himself.
God has a quirky assignment for Jerry: to deliver the message, "Think for yourself." That might sound like divine wisdom, but convincing people that you've been chatting with the Creator in aisle seven of the supermarket is no walk in the park.
Jerry faces a congregation of skeptics, including his own family, who question his divine connection. Things escalate to a heavenly court battle, where God himself testifies! Spoiler alert: He's a pretty sharp witness.
This divine comedy is an exploration of faith, human foibles, and the ultimate celestial customer support. George Burns as God is the ultimate boss you never knew you needed. "Oh God!" will make you laugh, ponder, and maybe even consider striking up a conversation with your local grocery store manager – just in case they're delivering divine wisdom alongside the milk and eggs.
