3 Shows Christian Families Can Binge While Super Bowl Is On

This year many families are choosing to turn the Super Bowl off. If you are not into the Super Bowl and want something safe the family can watch I have just the thing for you.

Touched By An Angel.

I just recently started watching this. Of course, over the years I would watch the show  from time to time and drop in on a special episode or two, but I was never a fan. Well thanks to Hallmark Drama, I have rediscovered the series. It is just excellent. It has just enough edge to keep the kids entertained and enough substance to make you tear up. The episodes of the series generally revolved around the “cases” of Monica (played by Roma Downey), a young angel recently promoted from the “search and rescue” division, who works under the guidance of Tess (played by Della Reese), a sarcastic boss who showed greater respect as an authority figure of her employee, and is more of a surrogate mother, than a mentor. Monica in one episode outlines that she started in the choir then annunciations, followed by search and rescue and then case work. Most cases involve a single person or a group of people who are at a crossroad in their lives and facing a large problem or tough decision. Monica and Tess bring them messages of hope from God and help give them guidance towards making their decision. During their first episode, the pair receive a red 1972 Cadillac Eldorado convertible as a gift; they use it for transportation throughout the rest of the series while in the human world, with Tess doing the driving. As the series progresses, Monica continues gaining experience as a case worker and, during some cases having to learn lessons of her own.

The Encounter

What if you had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ? Based on the popular movies, the series follows individual life stories and illustrates how an unexpected experience with Jesus Christ can shift lives into a new and purposeful direction. I loved the short vignettes.

They allow you to chat about the episode that you just watched. If you haven’t watched the movies, take time to do so this afternoon. Created by popular demand, the “The Encounter” series is based on the feature film, “The Encounter” which follows five strangers who find themselves marooned in a deserted roadside diner with a genial and mysterious host (Bruce Marchiano). The series is also based on its sequel, “The Encounter: Paradise Lost.
