I finally had a chance to watch "The Bible" and was amazed at the poorly-written, almost laughable script. While the cinematography, acting and SFX are professional and believable, the script IS NOT. If you were to take a Sunday school class of 8 to 12 year-olds and ask them to write a script for a series based on the Bible, this would be the result. I was amazed to read that the producers consulted "a wide range of pastors and academics." Really? Maybe the only way to tell such a beloved story is to be simplistic and shallow. But, since these stories have all been done many times before, I would have hoped for something a little more sophisticated. And whoever it was that said narration is the sign of a poorly-written script was absolutely right about this one.
