The majority of made for cable programs stay on the air way too long and could learn from the makers of Twenty- First Century Golem, who planned on doing just two seasons and then bringing the story to a close. This controversial show is going out on top in the ratings race and with yet another controversial episode that has angered hatemongers from around the globe.
In the previous week’s cliffhanger ending the Golem had reassembled itself into dozens of human-sized Golems and was face-to- face with Muhammad himself, the blood- soaked central figure of the homophobic and misogynistic belief system called Islam.
Last night’s concluding episode was an all-out action epic and presented a battle royal between a gigantic Muhammad and the human- sized Golems for the first 10 minutes. At one point Muhammad had imprisoned the Golems in a force field and turned his attention to what he loved best – killing gay people and oppressing women.
Thus distracted the huge madman failed to notice the Golems merging to restore the Godzilla-sized form that the heroic monster has been trapped in since the events of last season’s finale. The reassembled Golem burst free from the force field and stopped the gigantic Muhammad from destroying a hospital full of Israeli children.
After a long special- effects blockbuster the Golem defeated Muhammad just minutes before the arrival of a group of spaceships. It looked like another menace had arrived and viewers were probably cursing their tv screens thinking the producers of Twenty- First Century Golem were going to end on a cliffhanger just to try to justify a third season.
As it turned out the aliens in the spaceships came down to get Muhammad, announcing to the world that he was a member of their species who was criminally insane and had escaped to Earth hundreds of years in the past to found the religion called Islam. They had recaptured him long ago in the event that Muslims remember as his “ascent”. These aliens have life-spans of thousands of years, so the alien lunatic called Muhammad by us Earthlings was still alive and had recently escaped, intent on returning to the Earth.
The aliens took the screaming and shrieking Muhammad back to their homeworld to reimprison him after obligingly restoring the Golem to his normal 9-feet tall form. The Israelis put him on display in a museum, while in the meantime Barack Obama, the blustering comic- relief villain of the series, tried telling the world that the spaceships and the gigantic Muhammad were nothing but an Israeli plot.
The world wasn’t buying it, though, and Muslims around the world overthrew the bloody “clergymen” of their faith and in a massive Reformation kept the positive aspects of their faith while jettisoning the hatred and savagery. The world was at last free to move on without the untamed, blood-soaked beast called Islam constantly retarding its social progress and at last moved on to address other concerns.
Overall a very satisfying close to this incredibly daring and iconoclastic television series!
