I've heard from parents with small children who thought the drama was too much. The kids would look up at their parents every time the word "sex" was used - and it was used A LOT. Then the parents have to try and explain the issues at hand, which are over the little kids' heads. In addition, the parents also have to give reasons why it is alright for the drama to talk about sex so much. I think that this would have been good for teenagers and adults but not for small children. That is, normal teenagers and adults. It's just my opinion but I think the Watchtower cultivates a sexually repressed and naive environment.
Which leads me to my biggest issue, Watchtower hypocrisy. As I was watching the modern day portion, I thought, "If this were a TV show, a lot of witnesses would turn it off." I was reminded of the counsel I've heard from the platform many times before: What if Jesus walked in to your house while you were watching your favorite show? Would you be embarassed because of the violent, sexual, or otherwise worldly themes in the program? In this drama, you had young kids talking openly about sex, a teenage girl shaking her hips, tossing her hair, rubbing up against a boy and propositioning him for sex. This is pretty realistic for teens today. But JWs are not supposed to be entertained by this sort of thing, even if there is a message behind it.
Then, you have the Bible times portion of the drama. Buff, shirtless men. A sexy seductress. A criminal who makes lewd jokes on the subject of rape. These elements are the stuff of romance novel fantasies, soap operas and raunchy comedies; all things that JWs are told to avoid. But here, at their annual convention, they're treated to the very same things they're counseled to run away from.
Sisters are always reminded to be modest and not give brothers any reason to get aroused. But in this drama, you have a super hot female lead in a gown that shows all her curves, strutting around with sexuality oozing from her pores. Is that not a potential turn-on for brothers? Then you have many sisters in the audience who may be single, divorced, or experiencing marital problems. Those sisters are reminded by the Society of their place, especially in sexual matters. But in this drama, you have muscular, shirtless men in beautiful costumes playing a role of servants. I would be willing to bet that quite a few ladies (and some men) got a bit flushed when those studs walked out on the stage. Could that not be a stumbling block for a person who is trying to keep their sexual desires at bay?
Maybe I'm making too much of this but as it stands now, I see a double standard.
