Devastating review of “The Passion”: now the narrator Thomas Gottschalk defends himself

Even two days after the television show, “La Passion” is still on everyone’s lips. Narrator Thomas Gottschalk also commented on the harsh reviews.

Cologne- Also two days after the TV show is “Passion” still on everyone’s lips. The de RTL modernly staged story of the crucifixion of Jesus with “DSDS“-Winner Alexander Klaws (38) as the Son of God failed the majority of the audience.

Viewers online were hilariously amused by the bizarre take on the primetime story. Above all, Twitter users described the bizarre bustle in downtown Essen as “cringe”.

Many celebrities have also gotten involved in the controversial discussion of the meaning and nonsense of the sensational attempt to maneuver the life, suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ down to the present day.

ZDF satirist Jan Böhmermann (41), for example, threatened: “Tomorrow I’m going to the district court and leaving RTL! That’s enough!” The TV columnist Anja Rützel (49) considered “this evening as a notice of arrest fully deductible at the Last Judgment”.

One of the main protagonists next to the original superstar was Klaws Thomas Gottschalk (71). The caption “Wetten, dass…?” narrated the pop musical live on Wednesday night.

Now, the 71-year-old has taken a stand on the scathing reviews of the project and its cast. “It was clear to me that such an attempt would be ridiculed on social media,” the showmaster told Bild. The original story was not “cool” and the result was also known.

Gottschalk also said, “I would have liked that experience in an increasingly boring television landscape with the public sector!” He is therefore grateful to RTL for agreeing to stage such a courageous staging.

Although you “definitely could have done things differently and better”. But it was definitely worth trying. “I don’t regret being part of it,” said the artist.

Despite the mixed reactions, the televised event was able to attract 2.19 million viewers in front of the screen and thus register at least one audience success.

Certainly one of the reasons why RTL has already announced want to replay the passion story next year.
