It’s Almost Easter- So It’s Time for the ‘Bible Specials’

This one airs tonight. It’s on PBS so hopefully it’s better than the absolute garbage that NBC and CBS and ABC air when they do Bible stuff and surely it must be better than the general nonsensical speculation that NatGeo and the History Channel spew like vomit from a frat boy’s weekender mouth.  However, given the very opening of the trailer where they portray the nail being driven into the palm of Jesus’s hand, I have no hope that it will be.

You’ll have to decide for yourself because, frankly, the entire genre of the ‘bible special’ on the tv machine has such a long history of wretchedness that I can’t stomach them any more.
