Joan Martyred

Joan of Arcadia was officially cancelled by CBS this week. My wife was a devoted fan of the series, and, though I didn't follow it as closely, I admired its ambition. Following the episodic structure of Quantum Leap with high school student Joan Girardi as Samuel Beckett and a denominationally-neutral "God" as Al Calavicci, the series maintained several entertaining and compelling character arcs while also trying to unify philosophy, religion, and science. The second season finale suddenly thrust the series into the realm of the apocalyptic, setting up a battle between Joan and "anti-Joan" Ryan Hunter, whose true nature and motives are unclear.

The first season is available on DVD.
