Did You Know?


When Koresh and the lawyers are standing outside the building doors, a mezuzah can be seen attached to the doorpost, as required by the Old Testament. In the show it is attached to the left-hand doorpost tilted outwards, however, whereas Jews customarily attach it to the right-hand doorpost tilted inwards. See more »


Likely for reasons of safety, the fire that engulfs Mount Carmel is more clean and controlled than the real Waco fire. See more »

The Most Tragic Series Finale Ever!!!

The standoff at the Mount Carmel compound comes to a violent and tragic end. Day 51 is not only the Series Best Episode it's also the most tragic one, the things that happened during the siege before and after made me mad to even call myself a human being and believe me there's also 2 sides in all stories both the good and the bad but what happened in Mount Carmel could have been avoided if the FBI wasn't so stupid and listen to Gary but then again we're humans and we're made to fail and make more mistakes than rights. The Perfomances are Fantastic from the Entire Cast and now that Waco has ended i have to be honest this was one of the most powerful TV Shows i have ever seen in Years and one that will have people in tears. (A+)
