    I know how hard it is to avoid a lot of less than stellar movies, music, tv shows, books who's only claim to fame is raunch, explicit sex scenes, homosexuality, perverse situations, occult themes, and profanity.

    So please post some suggestions on wholesome entertainment that you know personally, that's safe for the whole family. Posts oldies, newbies, and where we can find them i.e. Netflix, pureflix, DVDs, tv channels, etc...
    Also if its wholesome but maybe too heavy dramatic for younger ones let us know the cutoff age. I like to add 1-2 years to whatever the PG ratings are, I find that they let some things slide by that are completely inappropriate for the ages they list. TIA.





    No shows, movies, or music that's just plain inappropriate for the entire family to enjoy together. Also no shows or movies or music having to do with horror, gore, serial killing, witches, warlocks, sorcerers, witchcraft, magic, ghosts, psychics, horoscopes, divination, fortune telling, tarot card readings, seances, ghosts, ghost hunting, necrophilia, necromancy, anything where spells or incantations are promoted heavily or are the entire focus of the program etc... or any occult introduction i.e. Initiation to occult type entertainment ex: The Good Witch, My Little Pony, Harry Potter, Wizards of Waverly Place, Escape to Witch Mountain, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Alladin, The Little Mermaid ) or covertly or overtly sexual or hypersexualized kids or situations with kids, (Monster High fits 2 don'ts on this list, Bratz etc...) any of this type you will be asked to delete or replace your post with something else. Also keeping all posts in compliance with Christian Forum Rules.

    Here's a new show I'm liking so far. New on hallmark Chesapeake Shores it's on instead of
    When calls the heart.

    I first learned about PureFlix in CF. Last week we watched Princess Cut as a family - it was so nice watch a Christ centered love story with my daughter.

    Watched it, really like it!
    Especially how it's dealing with current issues we have now days of dating relationships and chastity. I don't want to give the story away. I added to my must read book list from this movie too.

    I also like 'Keeping Up Appearances' with that silly Hyacinth Bou-KAY!:lol: Some of the stories aren't spotless but it is pretty clean.

    They are something else!!! One of my favs. As a kid and then young adult, PBS was my go-to. I got away from television in grad school to where I just rented foreign films when I could. Now, it's largely Youtube or Netflix. I'm big on international flics and many of them are very open-minded sexually. I usually just flip through the parts to get back to the story line. But biblical cartoons I can definitely recommend. Prince of Egypt and Joseph are my favorites.

    I will check them out, I'm loving Downton Abbey there's was a marathon, but it's not for very small kids under 14 more of an adult mostly clean drama.

    Watched this last night. THIS is what I want. Man observes woman prayerfully and asks to initiate a deeper friendship. Why is that so hard for men to do today? Sigh. Anyway I really enjoyed it (although yes some parts were cheesy lol).

    With the holidays fast approaching I'm excited for the Hallmark Christmas movies :holiday:.


    My favorite last year was Pureflix's Silver Bells. I found the lead actor to be brilliant in his role. He cracked me up :lol:.

    For cheesy Christmas romances my latest favorite is a Crown for Christmas. Cute, clean and fun with some beautiful winter backgrounds.

    No spoilers: don't want to give the movie away but did you notice how the other guy she started dating was always trying to pressure her with slick words and techniques like he new all the right things to say.

    There's a new show on network television called "This Is Us." So far, it has been pretty clean. I am hoping that it won't disintegrate and slide into the muck and mire that has become the hallmark of network tv these days. It come on NBC on Tuesday nights.
