    One of the best religious miniseries, IMHO, was Masada. I loved it then; I love it now. Superb.

    When are they going to do The Quran? Muhammad in the Battle of the Ditch personally beheads 900 Jews in one night, tossing their headless bodies into the ditch dug around Medina. Then he divides up their women taking half. Then he goes back to his 9 year old wife (they could cast Honey Booboo!). That's entertainment. The Quran is like an X-rated version of Game of Thrones on crack. Makes the Bible look like Leave it to Beaver.

    Go ahead. Just *try* to portray Moses being lost in the desert for 40 years without making him look like a clueless idiot dying for someone to invent the GPS. :)

    Oh I don't know. Steve Martin or Jim Carrey could probably pull it off. :sure:

    I'd call it "Hangover IV: The Resurrection". Twelve Jews wake up in Jerusalem having no memory of the day before. Then one of them asks, "Where's Jesus?" Mayhem ensues.

    I don't think you have the quote quite right, but I'm pretty sure you were going for Johnny Dangerously.

    The King James bible in 1 Samuel 15:33 it clearly says that "Samuel hewed Agag in pieces" so it was a bit more than just him killing Agag.

    I was trying to remember the scene from "Top Secret!" where pop-star Nick Rivers (Val Kilmer) is on his way to his supposed execution at the hands of the East Germans.

    "The Bible's" depiction of the Devil explains why the show is so popular! Get thee behind me Barackzeebub!

    The History Channel and the show's creators have responded:
    Glenn Beck has managed to turn "The Bible" into publicity for himself. He's good at that.:rolleyes:

    Whether or not the producers put an Obama lookalike in there as the Devil intentionally or not, how could the similarity not be caught way up front? Films are cast meticulously. All angles of the actors' faces are examined, there are screen tests, etc. And NO ONE noticed the resemblance throughout the entire process to the American President? Ridiculous.

    I think it's a riot. Obama haters are loving it, and even Obama fans are getting a chuckle out of it. Only the Devil is pissed off, he thinks he looks way more like Robert Guillaume!

    Worse than even a typical Syfy movie and special effects to match.

    History has done some good stuff lately, but this is just plain embarrassing.

    Its ratings don't seem to make the opinions of you and others here matter one bit.

    Same with rap music. You can fool most of the people most of time.

    Porn gets awesome ratings, too. Very similar production values...

    Imagine the ratings a production of the Bible would get if Hollywood would adequately fund it and treat the subject with respect. This one is succeeding in spite of Hollywood and the networks.

    I think if you produced an alternate-reality series in which the South won the Civil War, you'd get killer ratings in the South. Nobody ever went broke pandering to a large-demo, captive audience. That's why half of all movies are targeting males 12-18.

    But pandering is generally the enemy of good.
