GUEST,Anonny Mouse BS: NBC Cancels Book of Daniel (28) RE: BS: NBC Cancels Book of Daniel 28 Jan 06

6: read that Doctorow book a long time ago--about the Rosenburg trial and executions. Good writer. But, nah--this is about a show on NBC that had a lotta folks' bowels in an uproar because Jesus would make regular cameo appearances, and was far too "human" for some; also the main character Father Daniel-an Anglican priest-had a vicodin habit, an openly gay son, a daughter who sold marijuana to finance cartoon software for her computer, an adopted Asian son, a good looking wife--drove a Volvo and lived in a really nice house that WASN'T the church's rectory.

Like I said, plenty to offend a lotta people. I wasn't offended-but found all the problems the family had a bit hard to believe seriously. Ellen Burstyn played a female Bishop, and it had a really decent cast (Aidan Quinn was "Daniel" the priest). I wouldda like to have seen at least the original 8 episodes before they yanked the plug. "Cheers" was a ratings disaster it's first year, and into its second-so like I said, I think it was more than just the audience, but sure had to be a factor.
