Exodus Decoded

Anyone else catch this show on the History Channel?

Mr. Titanic, James Cameron,produced--and it shows. Production quality is outstanding, making for lots of "wow" and "wouldjalookitthat" moments; the oddly charming host, Simcha Jacobovici, narrates in a non-preachy, non-political, but reverent style and neatly ties up centuries of loose ends about the hand of G-d versus acts of Nature and whether or not the Exodus story is metaphor or myth. Plus, awesome CGI recreations!

Of course, plenty of cranks stepped forward with their criticisms of the theory posited by Jacobovici (like certain Muslims who take issue with archaeological evidence that supports the land of Israel) but it all sounds jealous and/or self-serving. A big "nyah nyah" to them.

I was positively riveting to every moment of the program--and I am a notorious channel flipper!

Biblical intrigue--What's not to like? They're sure to rerun the program on History, but I see the DVD is already for sale.
