Discussion of tonight’s show…
I found something extremely interesting about the part where God comes down and starts playing a game of chess with joan. Since I am an uber chess geek I noticed something that I found both interesting and intriguing, something that only a chess player would notice. Basically the moral that was being taught was, if you’re in the game, play. But as the moral is being dispensed until Joan gets it, they are playing a game. It only got into 3 moves for God, who played the white side, and Joan who was the black side. Before they hit commercial, they showed an upper angle of the chess board. Now here’s the part I find very interesting considering the course of conversation between God and Joan:
God was doing Fool’s Mate. For those who do NOT know what that is, it is a 4 move victory. I’d explain, but those who know it get it and those who don’t, I can’t explain it without confusing the hell out of you. I just found it intriguing that that would be the play God would make while trying to make his point.
On purpose or just blind luck? Beats me, but I still think it’s cool
