"*Welcome to Heaven, Inc., the grossly mismanaged corporation in the sky. For as long as anyone can remember, the founder and CEO (known in some circles as “God”) has been phoning it in. Lately, he’s been spending most of his time on the golf course. And when he does show up at work, it’s not to resolve wars or end famines, but to Google himself and read what humans have been blogging about him.

When God decides to retire (to pursue his lifelong dream of opening an Asian Fusion restaurant), he also decides to destroy Earth. His employees take the news in stride, except for Craig and Eliza, two underpaid angels in the lowly Department of Miracles. Unlike their boss, Craig and Eliza love their jobs - uncapping city fire hydrants on hot days, revealing lost keys in snow banks - and they refuse to accept that earth is going under.

The angels manage to strike a deal with their boss. He’ll call off his Armageddon, if they can solve their toughest miracle yet: getting the two most socially awkward humans on the planet to fall in love. With doomsday fast approaching, and the humans ignoring every chance for happiness thrown their way, Craig and Eliza must move heaven and earth to rescue them - and the rest of us, too.*"

I cant decide if premise sounds like something not to unsimilar to a usual episode from a Seth MacFarlane cartoon or South Park or the movie Bruce Almighty if Judd Apatow D; had somehow been one of the co-writers xP.I justed rolled my eyes after reading a blurb on it thinking that it’s is disappointing that such audacious concepts are going mainstream in popular literature.Just b/c the guy’s the youngest writer that SNL’s hired and a Harvard grad does that mean he deserves whatever acclaims he gets coming out of this?.

it does sound like a mix of South Park and Dogma… I’m not sure what my reaction is to this without reading at least some of it.
