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.
