So, NBC just aired part one of a remake of Rosemary's Baby starring Zoe Saldana as Rosemary.

The story begins with a young Coptic Orthodox girl (Rosemary's predecessor) whose husband is in the process of selling her out to a clique of devil worshippers in Paris in exchange for wealth and success.  Her cross tattoo on the wrist is clearly visible.  She jumps to her death to escape her husband and his new cronies.

Later, Rosemary begins investigating the circumstances of the girl's death (her name is Nene) and after figuring out that she's Coptic locates a Coptic parish in Paris where she speaks to two Abounas.  They are accurately attired as married priests, with the proper caps and pectoral crosses, but one of the priests has the long hair of a monastic (something I've never seen on a married Coptic priest).  Their chapel looks more like a Byzantine chapel with Roman Catholic elements.  The priest with the long hair warns Rosemary against the devil worshippers, who later murder him and hang him from the ceiling of his church.

Looks like our public profile is increasing!

Remakes often take noetic license.

Roman Catholics and Russian Orthodox would probably tell us:  Welcome to the club  Wink

That wrist cross tattoo was a big giveaway, although it was a big extravagant and black compared to regular tattoos.

You know what's funny, everytime I see something green on someone's wrist, I tend to examine the tattoo and the person carefully...lol

It's kinda funny how that cook was like, "oh ya she must be Coptic. There's one Coptic Church in Paris," as if that was common knowledge. His many common folks in Jersey City know there are two Coptic parishes there Tongue
