    Are You Watching “The Bible”?

    Earlier this month, the History Channel premiered The Bible, a new miniseries from reality TV producer Mark Burnett. Though there wasn’t much hype leading up to its debut, the premiere grabbed a staggering 13.1 million viewers–the biggest audience of any cable broadcast this year so far.

    Although the high number of viewers is slightly surprising since it wasn’t highly promoted and the show has few notable stars, TVLine.com commenters have praised the series’ non-preachy stance and gorgeous shooting styles.

    The second week also did well, drawing 10.8 million viewers. The show, in scripted format, tells stories from Genesis through Revelation. The show’s website says, “featuring an international cast that includes Roma Downey, this 10-hour docudrama explores the sacred text’s most significant episodes, including Noah’s journey in the ark, the Exodus and the life of Jesus.” Each episode also re-airs on Lifetime.

    1. I’ve been watching “The Bible” and I have enjoyed it, but there are so many inaccuracies! The show still gets the message across, and it is an overall great show, but I am a little OCD about the little things.

    2. Yes! I’ve been watching it every weekend. My Mom can’t get passed the ninja fighting angels at Sodom and Gomorra though. 🙂 Despite it’s inaccuracies it’s a really good show. I think one of the director’s, Roma Downey, said this show wasn’t meant to be taken as the complete accurate story. For those who watch who aren’t believers, the show is kind of like an appetizer to the Bible, if people want the full meal they will have to dig deeper into the Bible and read it.

    3. That looks so freakin’ cool!!! I don’t have cable, or a steady enough Youtube connection to watch it that way, but that looks awesome!
      It looks fairly high-budget and not ghetto, which is definitely a plus. And the acting was pretty good.
      Was that black guy Samson? With the donkey jawbone? Craziness!

    4. Other than the annoying inaccuracies, this show is very good overall! I loved Roma Downey as a kid when I watched Touched by an Angel reruns. In all serious, I expected this to be very good (it WAS one of my favorite actresses and one of three role models, after all) and this is a pretty good show. I love the action sequences overall, but it’s just the inaccuracies that concern me. It really encourages people to dig deeper into the Bible. Happy that it’s popular with the masses (it trends on twitter every Sunday night for the past few weeks)

    5. Omg, my favorite part so far has been when the the guard asks Moses, “Why would Pharoah bother to talk to you?” then Moses turns and says, “Oh, believe me. He’ll want to see me.” Then the screen turns black and there’s a big DUN!

    6. I have been watching it and love it. It really portrays the spirit of the bible really well. I just wish there wasn’t quite as much violence, but I guess considering the time period the bible was written in, the violence is necessary to show how corrupt the world actually was before Jesus was born.

    7. It’s a good show, and a great idea! It draws people in and interests them about the Word of God. But it does have inaccuracies, that to me, seem big. Then again I’ve read, so I know what’s missing. They’ve also seemed to leave out the whole “sin” part. Anything that might really condemn somebody.
