Hand of God (an Amazon Original Pilot) starring Ron Perlman & Dana Delany

watch here.

A psychological drama about a morally-corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown and believes God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice.
anyone watch this yet? I just haven't had the time yet, but the cast and the premise sound excellent.

EDIT: probably should be in the streaming sub-category I guess...

I plan to watch this soon. I admit the premise reminds me a bit of Saving Grace.

I watched it last night, mostly because I like Dana Delaney. It is very dark, I don't think I care for it. I can't say much more without spoiling it.

I watched it earlier today and I liked it. It was a bit dark, but there is mystery angle about what happened to the main character when he was missing three days and the stuff with his family.

It's been debated a lot, but this kind of web series has settled in the TV forum due to content rather than method of delivery.

Finally watched it, and did like it. I like the premise. I also have a huge crush on Alona Tal so I was pleasantly surprised that she was in the cast.

The acting all around is pretty good, with one exception. The small black guy who looks like a retarded Gus from Breaking Bad. The syntax in how he talks, or perhaps he has a small speech impediment, I have real trouble understanding what he is saying.

Interesting premise. I liked the ending with the cop. I'm down for more episodes.

I agree with this and I like your description of that guy. I understood what he said, but his acting was bad. I wasn't paying attention during the opening credits, but I was surprised when Garret Dillahunt showed up on screen. He was great and if this makes to series, he and Perlman will be good together in scenes.

I watched it, mostly for Delany, and didn't think she was used that well. Obviously there's room for the character to grow if this gets picked up.

My teenagers were huge fans of Body of Proof but hated this show because of the disagreeable people. I wouldn't mind watching more to see what happens, but as of now it wouldn't be a huge priority for me.

Expected to be picked up to series by Amazon. All the actors contracts were expiring today and the options were picked up.

Hand of God (Amazon Prime) -- S: Perlman, Delany -- Series Thread -- Premieres 9/4/15




Created and written by Ben Watkins, and marking the television debut of renowned filmmaker Marc Forster (Monster's Ball, Finding Neverland, World War Z), Hand of God stars Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman in his first lead television role since Sons of Anarchy as the honorable justice Pernell Harris. The show centers on Judge Harris, a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. With no real evidence to go on, Pernell begins to rely on "visions" and "messages" he believes are being sent by God through Pernell's ventilator-bound son. Hand of God also stars Dana Delany as the Judge's protective wife Crystal Harris, Garret Dillahunt as KD, the born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by Pernell, Andre Royo as the slick, smart, gregarious, and greedy mayor Robert 'Bobo' Boston, Alona Tal as Pernell's grieving daughter-in-law Jocelyn Harris, Julian Morris as the questionable preacher Paul Curtis, Elizabeth McLaughlin as the preacher's sultry girlfriend Alicia, and Emayatzy Corinealdi as Pernell's call girl and confidante Tessie. Forster, Watkins, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King are Executive Producers, and Jillian Kugler is co-Executive Producer.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
· Alona Tal as Jocelyn Harris
· Andre Royo as Robert "Bobo" Boston
· Dana Delany as Crystal Harris
· Elaine Tan as Anne
· Elizabeth McLaughlin as Alicia
· Emayatzy Corinealdi as Tessie
· Garret Dillahunt as K.D.
· Julian Morris as Paul Dobson
· Maximiliano Hernández as Toby
· Ron Perlman as Pernell Harris

CREW INFORMATION:
· Ben Watkins as CRTR/EP
· Brian Wilkins as EP
· Jeff King as EP
· Jillian Kugler as CO-EP
· Marc Forster as EP/DIR (Pilot)

Thought I would go ahead and post this now since most of you probably aren't aware of this show.

Here's the trailer

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iLuKzH-igLo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Episodes 2-10 will be posted on Amazon Prime this Friday

The Pilot is already available.

http://www.amazon.com/Pilot/dp/B00MR...ds=hand+of+god

It was one of several test Pilots that subscribers voted on in the Spring for series consideration and it got picked up.

I already saw the Pilot. It's very dark and I don't think this will attract a ton of viewers. The premise is a little offbeat.

I watched the pilot mainly because of Dana Delany, and it didn't really appeal to me.

Dominic Patten, Deadline.com's critic, did not like this show at all.

I remember the pilot too… And I wasn't a fan of it. When I heard this was picked up I was quite surprised. Not my cup of tea. Bring on "Mozart in the Jungle!"

Dillahunt is the draw for me. Maybe...,

You mean that contest where they show several pilots and we get to pick the one we want to see but end up with whichever one Amazon is going to give us anyway?

I forget how Dillahunt was Cromartie in Sarah Connor Chronicles after seeing him in Raising Hope for so long.

He;s really my only draw to this show. Wasn't impressed by the trailer on Amazon.

I actually remember liking the pilot. It was kind of rough quality w/ the kid and the guy talking to church dude but otherwise... it kept my interest.

I liked the pilot last year when it was released. I've watched 1-5 so far. I like the show, but I don't think it is extremely great. It is a bit slow paced, but the mystery factor regarding the son seems to heat up in episode 4, when a huge detail about him is revealed.

I finished up the season over the past week. I liked most of the storylines. The one storyline that didn't care for at all, involved the main character's mistress. There are a few cliffhangers in the finale

FYI

Season 2, the final season, was posted to Amazon today.


https://www.amazon.com/Hand-God-Seas...f+god+season+2

I guess no one is watching since this thread has barely had any activity since the 1st season.

I only saw the Pilot. Honestly, there's just too many streaming shows in addition to stuff on TV to try to follow. I like the cast here, but it's never been a priority show for me to try to watch.
