Review: The Bible

The Bible Mini is a Respectable Effort by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey

The Bible (History - Sunday, 8pm) - Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have reached out to a faith-based community that’s often wary of Hollywood as they promote their five-part, 10-hour epic, and if history is any guide (think The Passion of the Christ), that could yield boffo ratings for History. As for this handsome, sober but somewhat unimaginative project, the first half plays like a medley of the Old Testament’s greatest hits, before the true star of the show, Jesus Christ, finally arrives.
