The Book of Daniel
I tuned in to NBC’s new television series, “The Book of Daniel” last night. This is the one where Jesus pops up periodically in the life of Reverend Daniel Webster that has generated such controversy.
According to NBC, Jesus is Daniel’s “best friend and confidante” and “serves as a sounding board and encourages Webster to find the answers to his questions within himself . . .” Right. Where else might the answers be?
Here’s the good news: The show is really tedious.
The female bishop. The gay son. The angst-ridden, drug-dealing teen daughter. There isn’t a liberal canard or stereotype that the producers didn’t include.
My favorite moment of silliness was when Jesus and Daniel are sitting around chatting and exchanging jokes and Jesus says: “You need to laugh more.”
Such profundity. Now where was that clicker?
