Joan of Arcadia is about a teenage girl, Joan Girardi (played by Amber Tamblyn), who sees and speaks with God after promising him that she will do anything he asks if he will spare her brother's life after a car accident. Amber Rose Tamblyn (born May 14 1983 is an Emmy - and Golden Globe -nominated American actress and Poet. God is the principal or sole Deity in Religions and other belief systems that worship one deity. God appears in the form of various people such as small children, teenage boys, elderly ladies, transients, passers by, etc. Joan is asked by God to perform tasks that often appear to be trivial or contrary, but always end up positively improving a larger situation.
One of the more obvious effects of Joan's actions occurs when she is asked to take a reclusive bully to the school dance. While both her mother and the assistant principal object, Joan follows through with God's task. At the dance, it is revealed that the bully has a bottle of alcohol with him, but Joan convinces him not to open it. Despite this, the assistant principal later reaches into his jacket, finds the alcohol and expels him. Joan later finds out from God that, while this turn of events seems rather bleak, it was the lesser of two evils: in an alternate timeline, he shot over a dozen students and teachers with a handgun, before turning the gun on himself.

Various story-lines that spanned multiple episodes dealt with the consequences of Kevin's accident, Will's job as a police officer, Helen's career as an art teacher, and Luke's aspirations to be a scientist. No specific mention of any "true" religion is ever made, and God quotes Bob Dylan, Emily Dickinson and the Beatles rather than any scripture or verses. Bob Dylan (born Robert Zimmerman, May 24 1941 in Duluth, Minnesota) is an American singer-songwriter author poet and painter who has been a major The Beatles were a pop and rock band from Liverpool, England formed in 1960
