Excellent Show

As a Christian myself, this show makes you think about some of the more hypocritical aspects of religion,albeit in a funny way. The earlier seasons have some cheap gags, but it gets more nuanced as the show goes on. The show mainly pokes fun at religious figures who don't practice what they preach rather than Christianity as a whole. The first two seasons are a comedic satire of these ideas, while the third is a drama that brutally deconstructs them. Keep in mind that Orel, the protagonist, keeps his faith no matter what happens to him. This is a show that tends to earn the TV-MA rating due to subject matter and tone rather than pure vulgarity. However, there are quite a few sexual references and occasional sex scenes. There is occasionally some moderate violence, but virtually no swearing. I wouldn't watch this with my family, but an older teen can handle this show for what it is.

Jesus Christ! I didn't know it was a thing.

Who names their kid after oral?! Like why? Anyways, it tries to be a comedy poking fun of ultra conservative and ultra religious ideals. It was until we saw the true light at the end of Second Season. It's like realizing that you're in a cult of personality the whole time. They shift from making fun of christians to showing what cult like behavior done to the manipulated. Good show, but would not recommend for kids.
