There's storytelling and there's storytelling and then there's upsetting the applecart

Note to self: What miriammoules means by the term "storytelling" is not quite the same as what hmmm_tea means. Well, ok, the telling bit is the same, they just differ in the type of story. (hmmm_tea puts on his dunce hat and goes to sit in the corner for not seeing this a mile off).

Once I got over the surprise of what it actually was, I quite enjoyed applecart. After all, if you can get past the religious connotations, they are actually quite good stories even to a non-believer. C.S. Lewis managed to prove that one quite well.

Applecart was done in a refreshing unevangelical way, so you could just sit back and treat it as a story and was quite innovative in their use of song and video. I was particularly impressed when one of the actors addressed the UN security council and they had a pre-recording of someone translating him playing at the same time. I imagine getting the timing for that must have taken a bit of practice.

So, in conclusion, Applecart's quite fun, regardless of what you believe and hmmm_tea should pay more attention to what he's saying he'll go to before agreeing to things.
