God, The Devil And Bob

Take heart from the fact that US network NBC felt sufficiently cowed by viewers' reactions to this gently irreverent series to whip it off the air after only four episodes.

Our own, rather more lateral than literal, take on religious affairs should ensure that the sight of God (with James Garner's voice) as a laid-back hippie, hanging out with the Devil (Alan Cumming) in a downtown Detroit bar, is taken with a pinch of salt.

Beneath the cheeky appearance lies a series of moral tales with a modern twist.
