John Safran maintains he has little to no recollection of the exorcism that was performed on him for the final episode of the series, and that his reactions during the ceremony were completely involuntary. See more »
[on the issue of playing Scrabble with friends]

Having just seen the final episode of 'John Safran Vs. God', I'm pleased to conclude that this series is as equally entertaining as his previous show, 2002's 'Music Jamboree' (despite being two episodes shorter). While religion is perhaps a risky topic on which to base a television show, Safran manages to explore the subject in his usual unique style by placing himself at the centre of his stories. While this might have been a less appealing method had the show featured somebody more subdued, it is Safran's personality and the situations he is willing to place himself in that makes the series as entertaining as it is informative.
Oh, and the final episode is one of the most riveting conclusions to a television series I've seen in a long time.
The DVD, released in late October 2004, looks to be a worthwhile purchase.
