One of the Worst Episodes in the Series
28 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to begin by telling you that I don't buy the Shroud of Turin stuff. The evidence of a Christ figure on a piece of cloth is ludicrous. For starters no one knows anything about what Christ looked like. The figure on the shroud shows us a face that looks like the portrayals in Italian paintings. As usual, they are white and duplicate the Italian males of the time. Perhaps it would be better if they used a figure created by ketchup and mustard on a cheeseburger. So David Ogden Stiers is an overzealous minister who has overseen the cloning of a new Jesus, using DNA stuck to the aforementioned shroud. The embryo has been implanted in a young "new virgin Mary" who is eventually going to give birth to the super- tyke. She doesn't know that this is being done, and believes it is a normal in- vitro birth. Her husband is in on the plot and this leads to some tension. He is the new Joseph, of course. They even head to a barn to have the baby. While the baby is still in the womb, it begins to make things float in the air and is also able to destroy the lab where he was "formed." Sorry, I can't go on.
