Need something to replace Downton Abbey on Sunday nights? Perhaps you should consider “The Bible,” a ten-hour History Channel Series from Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor, Shark Tank, Celebrity Apprentice). The series premiers this weekend. One of my media friends who has previewed it says “meh,” but others are more enthusiastic. It is not your usual History Channel documentary. Rather, it dramatizes biblical stories. Think Ben-Hur meets The Ten Commandments.
Thanks to my student Anya for bringing it to my attention.
