For the past six weeks, I have been watching the NBC mini-series, Revelations. Why? It was something different and I am a fan of Bill Pullman.
After watching the final episode, I can honestly say that I would rather have watched moose copulating. They built this series up as some sort of epic good vs. evil battle royale. It turned out to be a six-hour long bad X-Files episode.
The story was about a nun (Natascha McElhone) and a scientist (Bill Pullman) searching for the second coming of Jesus Christ and a Satanic cult who murdered his daughter and kidnapped his son. These characters could have been crushed by an 18-wheeler in the first episode and it would have made no difference to the storyline. In the six hours of my life that was pissed away, nothing was resolved. The Anti-Christ and Jesus Christ were reborn, but the main characters never saw it nor anything they did changed anything.
Why would I rather have watched moose copulating than the Revelations? At least, the moose would have finished. I’m not a huge fan of witnessing a moose ejaculate, but it ends! With Revelations, there was no climax. Just good and evil walking off into the sunset waving angry fists at each other.
NBC, I am begging you to stop this nonsense. If you are going to show something that requires us to invest six hours of our precious free time, end the damn story! And if I see advertisements for a Revelations DVD, someone is going to be bludgeon to death with a Tivo.
