John From Cincinnati Question

I know there’s not a lot of love for the HBO series John From Cincinnati here on the Dope, but does anyone here know what the whole point of it was? I never did figure out if John was an alien or the second coming or what! Tried to Google it up, but couldn’t find any definitive answers.

Milch explains it here (if you can call anything from Milch an “explanation”.

Thanks AuntiePam!

So John was…9/11?

Who knows? I thought John was a messenger from God, only God didn’t bother to show him how to communicate. Or maybe John was mentally challenged. Hard to say.
