My favorite part about Easter is the annual Ten Commandments showing on ABC. Over the years they've moved it from Sunday to Saturday- probably because after the first of a million hours families everywhere realize they have more important things to do.

The costumes are by Consolata Boyle. Looks like she's finally gotten a great shot at doing something truly beautiful for beauty's sake. (Which is not always the point of costume design, but fun to look at nonetheless.) She has a pretty extensive work history, but nothing that sings like this does... unless you count Mary Rielly... which we don't.
