Critic Reviews for A.D. The Bible Continues: Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

A.D. for the most part has a fairly solid script, although Pilate tends to go 20th century at times.

The padding can only get worse as the miniseries goes on.

March 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Handsomely produced (on what appears to be a considerably larger budget than The Bible), diversely cast-with nary a "name" actor in sight-and fresh in its approach to the texts, A.D. deserves more than most of its ilk to be called inspired.

April 7, 2015 | Full Review…

The series gets points for sticking closely to its source material and promoting positive messages that, while steeped in Christian tradition, have widespread appeal -- among them faith, hope, love, and loyalty.

It's an old narrative that hasn't been modernized as much as it has been repackaged in a snappy manner. It mostly works.

April 4, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Although it's not so awful as to inspire wrath, A.D. The Bible Continues is one of those rare occasions in which I can't articulate a single logical reason why anyone, devout or not, should tune in to watch.
