I prefer to look at nice-looking people, anybody else...?
 
2013-03-03 02:28:35 PM
That's a really bizarre complaint. They're too attractive to be accurate portrayals of people 2-3000 years ago?

I liked it better when it was the All-Hitler Channel.

Ancient tales: The series will feature adaptations of all the well-known Bible stories, including Samson and Delilah

In the bible Delilah doesn't actually cut off Samson's hair herself.

/Pet peave.

Morgado is very good in the part, although he sure doesn't look the part.

He probably looks closer to actual MEern Jesus than Willam Dafoe so I'm not sure what Linda Stasi meant by that.

The "surfer dude" thing, perhaps?

According to Ric Romero, actors tend to me more attractive than everyday people.

I see they're still going with that "everyone was caucasian" thing. I guess people find it easier to worship Jesus if he looks like someone they'd like to fark.

Remember when Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, was a young prince and his father, to shield him away from seeing any suffering or ugliness, kept him in the palace surrounded by beautiful people and opulent surroundings?

It's like that, only Christians are doing it to themselves.

No I don't. I think that happened before I was born.

don't forget the British accent, because that is the overwhelming choice for Jesus and space alien bad guys.  If they gave Jesus a thick cockney accent, I would watch it just for the lulz.  Y'know wha' I mean?

History Channel produces live-action series based on mythological texts.

Can we cable subscribers sue them for false advertisement?

Unlike Ancient Aliens, at least the Bible is historically significant.

How can it be historically accurate if Eve won't be completely naked on screen?

Well, the actor playing Jesus is actually Hispanic.  Will he do the actual carpentry work or will it be a stuntman.

\window seat please.

As long as Ben Kinglsey gets to be the prophet Elisha. Failing that, Patrick Stewart.

There was a female Saint that wrote almost erotically about Jesus, and her visions. I think there was a statue depicting her and Jesus, and it is rather erotic. I can't remember her name I think it might of started with a S. I am pretty sure she is the Saint that starved herself to death.

We all know everyone 2000 years ago were all grimy and wore rags, like in Monty Python. Nobody knew how to bathe or comb their hair, and certainly couldn't wash their clothes.

There are very few cable channels that have programming based on what their acronyms advertise.

Lot's wife looks like a brunette version of my cousin.
 
2013-03-03 08:11:47 PM
And the movie is already off to a frustrating start. Hasn't History Channel had entire specials about how Jesus could not possibly be nailed to the cross through his hands, instead of his wrists?

C'mon man, this is the channel that gave us Ancient Aliens.  The shark was jumped  a looooong time ago.

You would have gotten much better gas mileage if you had chose to post this in the 'Politics' tab instead of "Entertainment'. This thread doesn't have one single reference to what caliber of rifle round Jesus preferred when he was suppressing firepower from the economy-killing poors.

TheManofPA: I didn't watch, but, was it aliens?


Kind of. It was really weird. There's this crazy sky wizard who gets people to weird crap: he banned eating apples and made some guy sacrifice his kid (fortunately, he was just farking with him). And when a  city of folks finally started to loosen up and have some fun, he nuked it from orbit. It gets weirder from there.

The Bible would be great fodder for a SyFy Channel miniseries, wouldn't it?

Remember when History channel had history on it?  Now it's just aliens rednecks and bible crap.

Watched the first half. Religion is still farked up and completely illogical. Apparently every random meteorological event was a sign from God. Stiff breeze? Time to kill my son!
