The BBC Passion

The BBC made a mini-series about the Passion of Christ. Why do I have the feeling it's a rip-off of Mel Gibson's Passion of Christ? I will probably watch it, or part of it, but it can't be as good as Zeffirelli's movie. The BBC doesn't do much in the drama department anymore, it's often cheap, tacky, soap operatic, dumbed down for dumber audiences and overall unwatchable.

By the way, I enjoyed Gibson's version, although I felt I was watching a horror movie. A good, very well made, well acted, well written, historical horror movie. If Dracula ever gets readapted, he should direct and maybe, maybe, we would get a faithful adaptation.
