On Becoming a God in Central Florida: Go Getters Gonna Go Getcha

Krystal helps Judd out of a jam. Cody finds himself pulled in two directions. Bets puts her foot down. Buck and Pat see an opportunity. [Season finale]

Power shifts constantly in On Becoming A God In Central Florida's dark finale (Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya for TV/AV Club, A-)
On Becoming A God In Central Florida’s own version of Chekov’s gun goes like this: Put a gun in Cody’s hands, and that thing is bound to go off...in a stupid accident. I’ve been on edge about Cody’s gun since the moment he got it. He’s too genuinely sweet to actually use it except as a threat to make himself feel tough. But he’s also too much of a dumbass to think about things like putting the safety on. Someone was bound to get hurt. And when the gun does finally go off, it’s in a way that feels very specific to this show, a strange and borderline disorienting jump from comedy to horror to comedy to horror again.

Back on September 26 2019, Showtime renewed this show for a second season (TV Line).

We may never know why Roger Penland went around barefoot, or what he imagined as a future for Krystal.

Positively stunned Ernie survived the season. It really felt like they were setting us his death as an echo/bookend to Travis's at the beginning of the season.

I very much enjoyed the season for it's actual grittiness (without the standard grimdark that usually accompanies it).

Dunst definitely on top of her game. Also loved her in the Fargo series as Peggy Blumquist, another strong and morally... flexible... character.
