politics, religion, netflix, possible spoilers for Messiah 

finished watching Messiah on Netflix yesterday and boy is that series a ride.

It can be fairly slow at times but when it's not it can really hit home, even got me emotional at times.

The basic premise is that someone in the middle east turns up, who people think he's jesus. The CIA investigates and concludes he's a terrorist cult leader. "Jesus" proceeds to tell people to come together, to love eachother, unity, peace. The CIA is even more convinced he's a terrorist and the middle east breaks out into war.

@finn no, is it also netflix or do I have to catch it elsewhere? What's it about?

@cult yeah, it's available on netflix. This is series about Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Series's screenwriters had experiences in the Israel Defense Forces.

@cult but it's not a typical one side bravado.
