Four best girlfriends hatch a plan to stay connected with one another as their lives start off in different directions: they pass around a pair of secondhand jeans that fits each of their bodies perfectly.
Millions of people speak to God. What if God spoke back? Life just got a hell of a lot more confusing for teenage Joan Girardi, who already deals with feeling out of place in her family : her police chief father, her somewhat overbearing mother, her geeky younger brother and former football star older brother, now paralyzed. They'd never believe her if she told them that God is talking to her. Does Joan have a higher purpose on earth, or are these strange conversations just in her head? Written by
In her DVD commentary for the first season episode "Jump," show creator Barbara Hall explains why Adam usually calls Joan "Jane." Hall says that in Adam's first appearance (in the episode "The Fire and the Wood"), he was still pretending to be a stoner to distance himself from others and protect himself emotionally in the aftermath of his mother's suicide. In service to that ruse, Adam would often pretend to be "out of it" - unable to focus or get simple facts quite correct. Hence, although he knew perfectly well that her name was Joan, he started calling her "Jane" to seem spacey - and it stuck as a joking term of endearment between them. Hall says that one can always tell when Adam is angry at Joan by noting when he uses her real name. Hall also says that this topic is one of the questions about the show she gets asked the most.

Maybe I'm bad at stuff like this... but we kissed. It's not like I've kissed a lot of girls. Maybe I've only kissed one.
Well maybe it meant something to me.
Maybe it meant something to me, too.
I don't... I don't know what to do with it now.
Maybe it's like that anti-drug guy said, you know? Romantic love is like a mental illness. It just happens and then what are you gonna do?
Maybe we're just not ready.
Okay. I accept that. Were you ready for that other guy?

I think its a wonderful show that is allowing our youth to bring God back into their lives. It's been too long now that God was "out". I think this show is going to reintroduce religion to our children. It's got a modern twist, but in all it teaches us about decisions, death and how to make our lives and the world around us a better place! I think it's about time for something of this genre to come into the mainstream. The cast is wonderful.
Everyone down to the guest appearances makes this show what it is... Wonderful! Joan seems to struggle a lot with what God asks of her, but this allows us to relate to her, because we all at times struggle with that same thing. I hope this show keeps running for many, many years. I highly recommend it to anyone who want's to feel connected with the world. This is a show to look forward to each week.
