A Netflix Original

Messiah

I binge-watched this Netflix original. I think that’s what you’re supposed to do with Netflix originals because of the way they tell the story. Slowly. So if you watch this, be prepared to binge because otherwise you’ll watch an episode and easily sum it up in one sentence. “X happened and then Y happened.” (I don’t want to give away any spoilers.)

But if you don’t mind the slow pace, the story itself is intriguing. There’s always this air of “what is happening” while at the same time you think you know exactly what is going on. Also, there are subtitles a lot. So if you don’t like to read subtitles in your shows/movies, this isn’t for you. There was some language and nudity so I’m not sure I’d watch it with younger kids or like your parents (if you’re like me).

The way the last episode ended was like there could be more or that could be it. I have a feeling there will be more episodes later, but am I desperate for them to come out, dying to see what happens next? No. I might not even watch the second season unless I’m really bored.

If you’re willing to give it a shot, and are interested in faith and religion, this show might be something you enjoy (I did while watching it). Would I recommend it as a ‘must watch’ TV show? I don’t think so.
