Soap Opera
1 April 2015 | by raymondelpSee all my reviews

The Dovekeepers is totally boring and unwatchable. Is this program about women who constantly sleep around in the dirt like animals who happen to be persecuted by the Romans or is it about the Romans persecuting a group of women who happen to constantly sleep around in the dirt like animals? Folks, this is nothing more than a modern-day soap opera that happens to be set in the days of the Jewish diaspora. It's a slap in the face of Jews like myself portraying men like horn-dogs and women like throw-away prostitutes who can't say no. As usual, the portrayal in this program of Jews is offensive; nothing more than uneducated dunces, loose women, dirty, greedy, sheepish,and uncaring. Just because the Shema and the Shehecheyanu are chanted does not make this program credible. Total junk.
