History Channel had the series, The Barbarians. If you watched where it was filmed and who worked on it, I kept thinking the same Lithuanian and Romanian actors kept being in it and sometimes killed off. This week, you’re a Goth, next week a Hun.
Most of the actors in The Bible seem to be British. I keep thinking of the Capital One commercials with the British actors dressed as barbarians. (If they asked me, what was in my wallet, I would assume I was being robbed, but I digress).
Watching the different battle scenes in The Bible, I thought of the Harlem Globetrotters. The enemies of Israel are just in the series to get killed. It’s a little like the team set up to lose to the Globetrotters. And lose. And lose yet again.
You can’t even tell your mother, cause she wont be able to see you, except as a blur. Your resume for the show is something like this.
Played an Egyptian, killed in action.
Played one of the bad guys in Sodom, killed in action.
Played a Philistine, killed in action.
Played a Babylonian, killed in action.
Sure you aren’t a cat? You just keep losing. Remember, think Harlem Globetrotters.
