Beyond the Davinci Code
13 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an excellent critique of the book and should have won at least one Emmy. I realize it was up against a former multiple winner, but too bad there's not room for the History Channel projects, as well as shows on some of the less touted channels and less expensive projects. Maybe the financial aspect should be considered along with the creative and technical angles.

Do HBO and PBS have to be the winners all the time? Maybe someday the voters will watch something other than the main channels. Hopefully, with more new and good shows on some of the lesser channels, this will change in the future.
