Movie Review; Sue Thomas F. B. Eye7:41 AM
One of the things I am going to try to do more regularly is review books and movies. Today, I would like to introduce you to a TV show that some good friends of ours introduced us to. Now before you run off and delete my blog as a bad influence (for nothing on TV can be good :), let me say that it originally aired on a Christian network called PAX.
The show began with Sue Thomas, a deaf woman who can speak, read lips, as well as sign, is leaving home for her new job at the F. B. I. in Washington D. C. She is disappointed to find that out when she gets there that the job is a token position so that the F. B. I. can say that they hire people with disabilities. She decided to go to the personnel office and tell them that she can handle a real job. She walks into the wrong office and her mistake starts a train of events that even she couldn’t have seen coming.
There are a couple of things you might want to be aware of before you watch them. First, even though it never goes beyond kissing, dating is presented as the norm and the main characters do have boyfriends and girlfriends. Another thing is that some of the episodes cover some subjects that younger children might not like. My family skipped over the one or two episodes that had serial killers.
My family loves this series because it is so family friendly. There is no bad language, it is clean, and many times they talk about God in a good way. They also are full of funny moments and even the most intense episodes are broken up with humor. Another thing about it is that it is a good versus evil kind of series and the good is shown as good and the evil is shown as wrong and bad. I know that sounds a little funny, but a lot of movies these days seem to make that distinction a little hazy.
