I loved this show. I had no intention of watching it, liking it, but kind of fell into it. From the very start I was captivated. By the superb writing; the great acting. I loved that many of the principals were not well known. And I have to say that Avi, and especially the Messiah were awesome. It has to be very daunting to cast these roles. The Messiah was utterly believable, mesmerizing. In the episodes there were so many iconic scenes and lines. I had to binge watch the whole show; good thing I was off work for the day. I am still reeling from it. That is why my review is so scattered. The warring religions, the nations, the tribes and races were all handled with insight and respect. This is not a show about a cause, or a point of view. It is about the arrogance of humanity, and maybe about a reckoning to come. I'd like to add a few points. I thought his speech early on ( I think Episode 2) on the steps in Jerusalem was very powerful. "History has ended"; and "no more bargaining with God; that day has passed; step forward and it will begin". There are other quotes by him. Matter of fact I wonder who wrote much of that dialogue. Also it there was a point made through out the series of young people, children in key places. Jibril and Rebecca with the eyes of the world upon them in Epi. 9. Neither one sure of what they were going to say, and both transcending. But everywhere you look in the show you see young replacing, needing to replace old. The era of old white men, and their running order must end. I don't say this as an opinion. It is stated as fact. And re. a Season 2 - yes of course, one wants to see more of this high caliber of writing and acting. But do we need things wrapped in a bow, Hollywood style? Are we that shallow? This tale has been told. Part of the narrative is just this - that we don't know, can't know. It is a call to action. That we are the actors of Season 2.
