Storyline

St. Barnabas's episcopalian vicar Daniel Webster has a wealthy parish. Yet his family life constantly complicates everything. Peter is Daniel's model son and med student, but struggles with being a semi-closet gay. His adopted brother, ethnic Asian Adam, is an incorrigible rascal. Daniel's father in law is also a bishop, and the 'discrete best friend' of Daniel's bishop. In-laws and parish benefactors attract further trouble on top of the regular pastoral work. A hippie Jesus Christ inspires Daniel in cheeky visions. Written by KGF Vissers

Most original, witty, show in years.
6 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Recently sat down to watch The Book of Daniel to see what all this fuss was around it. I heard tons of rumours. The hardcore conservative church ladies were calling it " a wrongful display of Jesus" which surprises me because the menopause oppressed crazy women haven't even seen the show yet.

Could this show be as wrong and crude display as people have expressed. Well...no, these people are just so stuck to their original upbringings to even open up their eyes to something a little new. Besides that the show is actually respecting the entire Christian faith.

Back to the matter at hand. I watched it and found one of the most amazing witty dramas on television. It depicts the modern world in such a perfect way. It includes everything, homosexuals, alcholics, drug dealers, SUPER conservative CHristians, Liberal, anything. Its paced perfectly. The show keeps moving, taking different directions. Its a lot better than the over rated Desperate Housewives.

My Opinion: Don't listen to what other people say. That includes you Christians. No one should be offended by this, if so i think they're just a little tight.
