I want to make a fan vid response, featuring clips of every woman in The Bible who has been interpreted on film. I don't know how I'll get all the footage (I don't know where or how to ask for people to send me copies of footage or anything, downloading doesn't work for me anymore and I don't have Netflix right now). But I do have a couple songs picked out and it's a project I've wanted to do for a long time, way before this miniseries aired.

The History Channel's Bible Fail.

The History Channel has been trying to rebrand itself as a home for working class but intellectually curious (and probably white) male viewers. Everything they do must be fitted to this audience. Simplistic narratives that focus a lot on weapons, military tactics and explosions, which are cool but it means the network tends to ignore soft and subtle things, and women's stories, and men who don't come across as tough enough. If the History Channel was a cooking channel, they'd be Emeril and Guy Fieri 24/7.
