His Own Personal Jesus

"The Book of Daniel" premieres tonight on NBC. It stars Aidan Quinn as an Episcopalian priest who talks to Jesus. (And Jesus talks back.) I'm sure there's much more to the series than that (and I believe it falls into the realm of "dramedy"--or is that "dramady"?) but it's already causing controversy, and some stations are refusing to air it.

That's reason enough to watch the pilot, methinks. (Although that whole Jesus-as-a-character thing was done pretty well on "Rescue Me" already.)
