Critic Consensus: While its premise isn't yet fully realized, The Red Tent boasts an appealing lead and enough energy to suggest greater promise.
Tv Season Info
If it could be judged merely on the merits of its aspirations, The Red Tent would get two "you-go-girl!" snaps up. Unfortunately, how the miniseries turns those aspirations into drama leaves much to be desired over its four hours.
There's nothing like a sprinkle of soap to humanize an epic built on characters from the Bible.
Stick through the uneven first half of The Red Tent and you will be rewarded with a livelier conclusion that channels vintage miniseries in the best way: It's epic!
If you're looking for a soapy, fast-paced saga with a strong female lead, feel free to step into The Red Tent. If you're looking for a sermon, get thee to a church.
The up-with-women message feels both dated and too touchy-feely. Although the cast and the production quality are good, the revised story simply isn't as interesting as the original author's version.
