I wanted this to be good. It had the budget to be good. The cinematic feel of it was good. Some of the casting and acting was good. It had public support. But, it desperately needed a biblical historian (like Craig Evans) to guide the historical accuracy. It stumbles over the most basic details (a centurion is leader of 80 men, he most definitely wouldn't be assigned to guard a tax collector; Hebrew is read and written from right to left, yet Nicodemus seems unaware of this; also, sacred texts were on scrolls, not bound in books, and very rare; the disciples were not educated men, which is why the ruling class marvelled at their wisdom; the writing shows a very cursory reading of the New Testament and no knowledge at all of scholarly work done on arranging the gospel material chronologically or on Harmonies, and I could go on and on). Eventually all these inconsistencies and anachronisms were just too annoying to allow me to continue watching the series. I could only make it to episode 4, and have now abandoned it. Please, Dallas Jenkins, get a scholar to guide you, you have the unique opportunity to do a great thing, and the resources and public trust to do it. As it stands, I give this series a 4 (poor) out of 10. [Quasi-Biblical Drama]

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
