Absolutely hilarious.

It's funny. But the site says he wants to turn it into a half-hour series, and I can't see this concept as being suited for anything more than a series of shorts. All-powerful characters are good for one-liners, but bad for drama.

All the same, nice chanelling of Ricky Gervais (and maybe a bit of Ken Finkleman).

It's the best religious humor I've seen in a long time. I like that it's irreverent but without being annoyingly overtly blasphemous.

I don't know if it would work as a half-hour series. It sort of reminds me of "That's My Bush!"

I really, really liked that. Thanks, cookiebastard!

I agree on the similarities to Ricky Gervais, but I enjoyed it anyway. I kept thinking, "Should God have such a high-pitched voice?" I enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to more.

I really, really like this. While I don't believe in a personal God, if I did this is how I'd have to imagine him. (God's response to "Torment?" in the second episode- priceless!)
