The Bible on History Channel: The Battle Scenes.

You see all sorts of battle scenes in the History Channel series, The Bible.  But what of the guys the Israelites kill off?

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.

Imagine being hired for that.  Mark Burnett and Roma Downey tell the applicant, “There is no glory, not even a credit.  Your job, should you take it is to get killed and like it.”

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.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
