“The Chosen portrays the Good Samaritan as a true story, as opposed to a parable, and uses this premise to leverage an emotional payoff. But the premise of the Good Samaritan parable actually happening and meeting a villain of that story distracts from the emotional sensation that the show was going for. Instead of feeling powerful, it feels cheap.”
(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) After the brutal and choresome first season of The Chosen, I have not been eager to pick back up with my episodic review of the series. To summarize, the first season of The Chosen is a both unfaithful as an adaption of the Bible and is also bad television from an entertainment and quality standpoint. Having heard that season two is superior to its predecessor, I finally embarked on its first episode, “Thunder.”
The episode begins by explaining that the ironically nicknamed, Big James, has been recast. Then we get a mockumentary style opening of John interviewing the other disciples as he’s working on his book. The 64 minute episode feels as long as its runtime and it delves into three slice of life plots as Jesus and his 8 disciples are in Samaria.
