The Bible- Episode Two this Sunday

Last Sunday the Mark Burnett/Roma Downey miniseries The Bible premiered on the History Channel  with 13.1 million viewers, making it one of the top ranked TV shows of the weekend according to Deadline Hollywood.

Just to have the Biblical stories portrayed seemed to attract an audience of Christians longing for explicitly religious content on television.   Others were turned off by weak dialogue and with the ways epic stories were glossed over in the effort to make the whole book fit in a five part series.

The second instillation of the mini-series screens this Sunday evening on the History Channel.
