Eli Stone is living the high life as a successful corporate lawyer with a fantastic “Barbie-doll” lawyer fiancé. Life is looking good for him until he begins experiencing visions involving George Michael. His neurosurgeon brother blames an inoperable brain aneurysm, and most of us would agree that that makes more sense until his visions appear to be true visions of future happenings. He begins to think he may be a modern-day prophet of God after consulting with an acupuncturist who helps him to decipher the visions. It appears that the only way to stop the visions is to use his skills as a top-notch lawyer to help solve other people’s problems.
I have to say that God speaking through George Michael may seem slightly offensive to some, and there is a lot to offend religious Christians. Yet, not watching because of limited thinking about how God works would be a mistake as I think this is a great television series where belief in God and miracles is questioned. In turn this could be a great conversation starter about who God is and how he works. Pretty good for a current day television series, if you ask me!
I enjoyed watching this with my children, but some scenes may be inappropriate for under 10 year olds.
