    Episode 4 of Season 4 of The Chosen airs Tuesday night. Please indulge me for a moment. The way the production is being done in this show, a show about Jesus, is so different. It's not so much about Jesus as it is about how he affects the lives of the people around him. The show is from their perspective. First season they released the 1st four episodes all at once, then the next 4 episodes at a later date, for a total of 8 episodes, all completely crowd funded. "Crowd funded? How can it be of any kind of quality?" It's not a big production kind of show, so that helps. But the writing is very good, the direction is also very good and the production values are on par with those two things. The sets in the first season were somewhat lacking in scale, but you don't really notice. This season, Season 2, will also have 8 episodes, but there is such a clamor for more that they are releasing the episodes as soon as each one is finished. And the sets in Jerusalem and other cities have been upgraded, big time.

    So Episode 1 was on Easter Sunday, episodes 2 and 3 were released on the same night. They had only announced E2 was airing (live stream events on each release, then after E2, they said guess what? We're going to air E3 right now. The ending to E3 was emotionally stunning, something I'd literally never considered when thinking about Jesus's ministry, this after decades of sitting through sermons and bible study. And Jesus is literally only in it for maybe two minutes right at the end. Episode 4 is supposedly their most ambitious yet. We're very excited to see what they've come up with.

    The show is worth checking out even if you have no interest in "Christian" shows or movies. It's so different than anything that's been done before.

    Okay, I'm done. At least until after E4.
    The rules are: There ain't no rules.

    Thanks for all the information Dan. It's nice to hear someone share info on something they really liked! My sister is the Queen binger -- we'llBOTH look it up. I try to watch Biblical series - when it catches my attention. The Passion of the Christ I knew was going to be emotional so I took a wash rag - wash cloth instead of tissue. Yep - it came in handy.

    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    Lots of people have lovely scenery/places near home but often don't appreciate them. Others from outside the area think that these places are wonferful

    If you - any of y'all can catch these Aerial America shows (Smithsonian Channel) they are great! And of course they've branched out to other countries and "themes".

    Watched Rocketman - wow - I thought it was good. Gosh I remember all those songs like I was a teenager - but I wasn't even 10 for most of them.... but Philadelphia Freedom wasn't in the movie???? That was my all time favorite!
    re watched As Good as it Gets ... good movie. And Bad Boys 3 - it was ok -- alright.
