I want everyone to give a orthodox christian TV show for benefit.

Here is one from me: http://plovdivskamitropolia.bg

It is in Bulgarian language.

There are liturgies available online.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

There's a Brothers Karamazov miniseries from 2009 which I found quite enjoyable. It's pretty slavishly faithful to the book, which doesn't always make for good television, but overall it's very well done.

Yeah, the Russian one. What did you think?

Wow, that is incomprehensible to me.  I can't picture that working. I'll have to check that out.  There was some 50's Yul Bryner version of the movie that I heard was awful. 


There is an old  70's War and Peace BBC miniseries with a young Anthony Hopkins playing Pierre that is very good.  That might be the most "Orthodox" Tolstoy ever got.

Sometimes it really doesn't. Some of the more interior/ cerebral moments translate as well to screen as you might expect. Overall worthwhile though.

There are also on the Dostoevsky side:

The Idiot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnSe0LfqYAc

Evil Spirits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5FKmYZVUIs&t=1315s

Crime and Punishment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTLwOaTQzVs&list=PLPbSrKJ8RAjE01LO4RHXrd4dRB9ccHsVK

Also, there is a TV series about Dostoevsky which I cant find right now.

It might be cool to see Aronofsky do something like that or Notes From Underground when you think about cerebral moments.  Did the show do those long philosophic conversations or "Grand Inquisitor"?  If so, what was Grand Inquistor? A story in a story?

I remember thinking Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight reminded me more of a Hollywood/Comic version of Dostoevsky themes, maye something like "Demons" or something.

Yes. The Grand Inquisitor is done with costumes and all. There is obviously an earnest effort to cram everything possible from the book.
