Comments: Someone at NBC did not get the memo

While there are relatively few who support our current president who believe in divine-anything, they would probably make an exception in the case of The One.

So far, this has been a fairly interesting retelling of the story of Saul, David, Jonathan, and the rest of the OT gang. From the ratings, it does not look as if it will be around long, which may be a blessing. Some of the hints from the producer sound as if it will be a firmly "progressive" view of events, including David's and Johnathan's "relationship."

It's hardly a "retelling". Reimagining, maybe, and with decidedly pc overtones. Silas's comment to Jack about "not being what God made you" is not just not in the original stories, it's outright unbiblical.

Still, the acting is great - love Ian McShane. Did you notice the kid playing David is a carbon copy of a young Heath Ledger?

The butterfly thing put me off. I don't think I'll be watching the next episode.
