Found these bizarre clips on Youtube . . . from an old RTÉ series called “Give Up Yer Aul Sins”
Pretty amazing in its own way. The narrative content shows a pretty deep familiarity with the characters and plots central to the Christian drama, even if its skimpiness with the gorey brutality of The Passion seems a little naive. I guess I have to keep in mind that this thing was produced by foreigners, so I shouldn’t expect them to demonstrate the sublte mastery of an American artiste like Mel Gibson.
Anyhow, the voice talent on this thing is superb–those actors sound like real kids. One can only hope the polish of this thing inspires some for-real Americans to step up the plate with the likes of a “Terry Jones and the Westboro Babies” cartoon.
