Anybody else watching this? Overall, I like it. However, I have some regrets.
-- I wish they had delved into Jacob and his wives. All that soap opera could have filled a few episodes.
--Wish they had shown more of Jonathan and David's relationship. The scene where David pours out his grief on hearing about the death of Jonathan is one of the saddest in the Bible.
Also interesting to see what they've discreetly left out. For instance, not trying to start a controversy here, but the Bible does say the sin of Sodom was homosexuality. Also, when the Israelites attacked Jericho and the Philistines, they were commanded to kill everything, including the women and children.
I love the kick-butt angels. I think they're my favorite part. And I loved the story of Samson in episode 2. That made me cry. I also thought the whole Moses storyline was well done, especially the parting of the Red Sea.
