  • It Starts with a Bible

    9.0
    I classified this as Adventurous, because I didn't think it was really about Bob or Emily, but about the Minister of their Church. Although most of the emphasize is on Bob's problem with a $350 Bible and taking on the Minister as a client, it's the Minister who deals with the character arc.



    Being unhappy with having an abnormal life as a minister, he wants to be able to do normal things. He can't even go to Football games or watch a movie. My wife and I were friends with the Associate Pastor and his wife at our old church and we went out several times and had a good time. Although it was uncomfortable at first, kind of like how Jerry and Carol treat Dan, but it's really about the other people's threat level.



    Ministers are people, too. And they want the same type of experiences that everyone else experience.



    The closing of the scene where Bob returns the Bible to the church was the best!moreless
