Loved this two episode mini-series as a history buff
2 April 2015 | by dajonesholdstlSee all my reviews

This show aired March 31 & April 1st, 2015 on CBS: Having an interest in history and all things pertaining to the Bible, I was at first surprised by the way this story came to be - through 2 women survivors. Yes the 2 night idea made for a slow pace but that was to introduce you more fully to the characters which it accomplished very well. We all know that all the people killed themselves so that was a given but Roma Downey managed to flesh out the story so that we cared for these people and what happened to them. Historically speaking I often wonder how the people of the Bible actually thought and lived since we are so removed from that perspective today. Speaking of the main character and her potions: these are all herbal remedies however I was not sure sometimes if they were not something else - this was upsetting as it mixed Godly worship with witchcraft (white witchcraft). Maybe they did that or maybe they did not historically speaking. And there was too much emphasis on passion taking precious minutes that could have been used for the story. And last but not least, what happened to the babies - one in the womb & one living & being carried at the end when they are telling their story..? Did this story actually get written down in a Roman Library by a Jew as seen in the show? Overall, I liked the show, the costumes, the actors. Cons: commercial time between breaks was so long I could watch parts of another show. Am looking forward to Roma Downey's next efforts this Easter Sunday.
