"The Bible" on The History Channel

I am one of those millions of viewers who has been tuning in to the new miniseries "The Bible" on The History Channel.

While I feel they are doing a competent job of telling these stories, they are leaving many things out and also allowing some historical inaccuracy.

In one of the episodes, the robes of Ramses were so white and ironed that they looked like they came right out of the packaging at a Macys or Bloomingdales store.

In another episode, Ramses wore a metallic body paint that did not exist at that time.

However, the overall production quality is pretty decent.

The narration by Keith David is just phenomenal.

I'm looking forward to more episodes.
