Annoyingly Preachy

Living Biblically follows a man that seeks to live 100% biblically. The show is, in my opinion, poorly thought out and executed. The show doesn’t really make sense and most of the jokes fall flat. The representation of non-religious people in this show isn’t great. Neither is the representation of non-Abrahamic religions. But the biggest issue that I have with the show is that it isn’t funny. It’s annoying and not funny.

The more I watch, the more disappointed I am. Great concept, but poor execution. Many jokes fall flat. I don't see the humor in a rabbi and a priest playing drinking games with Chip and his co-worker, nor in the bartender lamenting because her dog ate her weed. Because they make references to drugs and alcohol as a form of humor and many scenes are in a bar and there are sex references (one episode centered around the noisy neighbors), I'm reluctant to recommend for younger audiences.
