Jesus vs. NCAA

If you don't care for college basketball, you can always switch to another channel. There you'll likely find a Jesus-themed show. That's the way it is this weekend.

My favorite Easter TV offering is "The Ten Commandments". Jesus isn't in it, but Moses is. It's actually more of a Passover saga. Let's just call it biblical. Yul Brynner steals the show. "So it is written, so let it be done." is delivered in a firm and unambiguous tone. I sure as hell wouldn't cross Ramses. Not without help. God jacks the Pharaoh up pretty good in the end, which is pretty much the point of the story. He's God. It's good to have him on your side.
