YMMV / Books of Samuel

  • Depending on the Artist: David, oh so very much.
  • Ho Yay: David and Jonathan were like the Naruto and Sasuke for medieval Yaoi Fangirls.
  • Values Dissonance: Basically, Saul lost his divine support after disobeying divine orders by being insufficiently thorough committing a genocide in which every man, woman, child and animal of the nation of Amalek was to be exterminated.
    • In fairness, the Amalekites were asshole victim's who mocked God and launched many unprovoked attacks on the Israelites.
  • Wheelchair Woobie: Mephiboseth.
  • The Woobie: Poor, poor Tamar. Her half-brother Amnon rapes her and David does nothing to punish him. Her brother Absalom is the only one to care about her.
