Woke Netflix Shaken Up by Big Hit

Among the many streaming services available today, none is more controversial than Netflix. The giant in online entertainment has been run by the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama. Few would argue that much of its content leans to the left.

In some cases, Netflix shows outright promote progressive ideologies like transgenderism and Marxism.

But the online platform might not have expected this three-part series to take off like it did. It became the number one show in March and has become one of Netflix’s 10 most popular series. And it is decidedly “non-woke” of them all.

From CBN:
A three-part docuseries about the Old Testament figure Moses has landed among Netflix’s top 10 most popular series.

“Testament: The Story of Moses” debuted on the streaming platform in March as the No. 1 show and since then, the gripping docudrama and expert interviews have captivated viewers.

The three-part series is narrated by Charles Dance and “chronicles Moses’ remarkable life as a prince, prophet and more with insights from theologians and historians.”…

“We liked the fact that he was a person with flaws; he had to overcome a lot and what was, by many accounts, a tragic childhood. We liked making him more human. He does things that are superheroic, yes, but there was a side of him that was very, very human and very, very flawed at the same time,” she continued.

A three-part docudrama about the life of Moses has become one of the top series on Netflix. The show follows the life of this Biblical figure, with insights about his life from theologians and historians.

The show features comments from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim people, who offer their perspectives on the man. Producers credit the show’s success with how it is portraying the humanity of the famous prophet, not simply as him being a “superhuman.”

This is a refreshing alternative to most of Netflix’s top series, which are often documentaries about violent murderers or shameless, sex-filled realities series. While Netflix is frequently criticized for embracing woke ideology, the company’s executives might be puzzled to see a Bible-based series doing so well.

Perhaps this will inspire more shows like this to pop up on the network.

Key Takeaways:

  • A docudrama about Moses has become one of Netflix’s top ten series.
  • It debuted at number one in the month of March.
  • Netflix is often criticized for its liberal bias and content.
