And Todd said, Let this Southern town have economic problems but no political solutions—winning a national gospel competition shalt be enough. And Todd blessed the choir with an American Idol makeover, circa 2001, so they sang, "now my God and I are the best of homeys," and there was more forced uplift than in GG's double-G bra. But lo, there was none of the crackling noise necessary in drama, not even when Olivia got upset with her strict mom and the script defended Mom as if, like an Old Testament Todd, she was to be obeyed and praised absolutely. And so it was that, out of a void of tension and self-questioning, there came eye-splitting gospel-muzak.
