Criminal!
27 April 2009 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

While the premise, the life of Jesus as sitcom, should provide ample material, this show just limps along, which is saying something as it is only 15 minutes long. Bad scripting, worst acting and $2 sets take this show from "it's so bad, it's bad" down to "it's so bad, someone, perhaps multiple someones, should be publicly stoned for it." The "gag" of Mary Magdalene as Siamese twins "Mary" and "Magdalene" alone is worthy of this punishment.

Adult Swim knew they had a dog on their hands and plugged this in at 5 AM on Sunday morning and not promoting beyond a brief tiny mention in their "bumps." Of course, soon enough, churchgoers (of which I'm not) and those who hate crimes against intelligence (of which I am) will find out about this and it will be swiftly canceled or so I hope.
