Greatest Heroes of the Bible: Complete Collection

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 10/21/15

This is a terrible show. It was made in the late 70's (for children, I'm guessing) and it stars all sorts of TV stars from back then, like Potsie from Happy Days.  The writing and acting is very wooden, stilted and overly-serious. The only reason this came to DVD is because there are probably some GenX-ers who grew up with it and are nostalgic for it (or that's what the DVD makers are hoping, anyway).

I was around back then, and I like some of the actors, but it's not worth it to watch this dreck. The "facts" in the show aren't even accurate. They have their history all messed up. I'm no bible scholar, but my guess is that is flawed as well.

Skip this and watch the more recent series "The Bible" and it's excellent sequel "A.D. the Bible Continues." Neither of those are very good for kids, though. Young children might like this older series. The DVD has 15 episodes, but not one feature or extra. Too bad. I would have liked to have seen what some of the actors or producers had to say about it.

I don't think that CBS video has a lot of confidence in this DVD; check out the super short description below.
