BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Edward James Olmos has been a professional actor for almost a half century. That’s given him decades to look at the good and bad that Hollywood has presented. So, when he says the scripts for the fourth season of the FX series “Mayans M.C.” are “arguably the best season” so far, that carries a lot of weight.

'Walking With Herb' Review: Edward James Olmos Lifts Faith-based, Golf-centric Comedy Drama

Since we’ve already had faith-based features involving football (“Woodlawn,” “Facing the Giants”), baseball (“Where Hope Grows”), basketball (“Slamma Jamma”), boxing (“Carman: The Champion”), competitive skateboarding (“Hardflip”) and even mixed martial arts (“The Fight Within”), it was doubtless inevitable that someone would produce a movie where the Lord works in mysterious ways on the golf course. Robert Redford’s “The Legend of Bagger Vance” (2000) didn’t quite qualify, given the nondenominational nature of its spirituality. On the other hand, “Walking With Herb” is explicitly and unashamedly upfront about depicting how an agent of God, or someone of an even higher pay grade, might directly intervene in providing a shot at redemption — and no handicap at all — for a golfer far from the fairway.
