Subscribers Threaten To Quit Netflix Over New Show Called Messiah

Subscribers Threaten To Quit Netflix Over New Show Called Messiah

Subscribers are threatening to boycott or cancel their Netflix accounts because of a new show that features a person who claims to be the son of God. Have a look at the trailer and make up your own mind:

Remember the fuss that The Passion of the Christ caused all those years ago? This is basically quite similar to that.

Whereas The Passion - Mel Gibson's gruesomely epic and epically gruesome 2004 film about the death of Jesus - caused protests, editorialising and anger amongst the Christian community, Netflix's Messiah looks set to see subscribers from different faiths chucking in their monthly payments to the streaming service.

So, what is it that seems set to cause all this outrage?

Well, Messiah is set in the present day and sees a CIA agent, played by Mission Impossible: Fallout star Michelle Monaghan, assigned the case of a mysterious man called Al Massih ad-Dajjal.

The crux of the matter is that Dajjal - played by London Has Fallen's Mehdi Dehbi - claims that he is the true son of God.

It's a bold claim, we'll just have to see how it pans out.

And we will, because Monaghan's character, Eve Geller, sets out to discover whether there is any truth to his claims, or if he's just a con artist looking to gain a heap of followers and disrupt the status quo.

There's a bit of a clue there - Al Massih al-Dajjal translates literally to false messiah or Antichrist in Arabic.

Anyway, a lot of people aren't happy with the show's premise. They think it's either too real - that is to say, a damning prediction of things to come - or just straight up disrespectful.

It's really pushing some folks to their limits, too.

One Twitter user wrote: "Who is with me in vowing to cancel our subscriptions and never watch Netflix again if they allow this Messiah show to drop?"

Another said: "Guys. I'm literally shaking. Someone posted that Netflix is coming out with a show called Messiah and it's about what will happen in the world when Dajjal appears. I'm shaken to my core - what?"

A third added: "I know people will be outraged by this Messiah show on Netflix if he is indeed supposed to represent the 2nd coming of Jesus or the Dajjal, but the trailer kinda gave me chills.

"For people of the Abrahamic faiths, in our beliefs this will be a reality one day & it's frightening."

Well, obviously it ain't going to be for everyone, but if you are still interested in catching it, the show will hit Netflix on 1 January 2020.
