    The movie "The Fault in Our Stars" is a REALLY good movie. Like "The Notebook" type good! :yep: :yep: Be warned though, it is a tear-jerker!

    The movie series on the UP channel . Marry Me for Christmas 2013
    A Wedding for Christmas 2014
    A Baby for Christmas 2015
    Merry Christmas, Baby 2016
    These all come out once per year starring Victoria Rowell, Malinda Williams, Karon Riley and several other nice black stars. Very sweet, precious movies. The last one debuted last night. It's about the continuing saga of the Chandler women. I enjoy watching and rewatching these.

    @Lucia, if you get to watch an episode of "This is Us" I'd like your thoughts.. I watched from the beginning and the story line is captivating...clean family show.
    Sidenote: There was one scene where the parents were looking at the three babies (white twins and an abandoned black baby) and had decided to name each of them with a name that started with "K"... (Kevin, Kate, Kyle) :lol: I was amused...but for the most part, the show is good, IMHO.

    Also, there is lots of depth to the characters, esp. Randall's (baby Kyle) dad.

    Not sure. I have a Fire Stick so that's where I watched it from. BUT you can rent it from Redbox, I'm sure.

    So I saw a little bit so far looks like a decent pg 13 drama I looked up the producer creator Dan Fogelman he's a married to his wife has written and or produced some movies tv shows like the road trip movie with Barbara Streisand Galavant, and Cars his list doesn't cause me to think he'll go off the raunchy end. He's Jewish so if that comes up in the show it may or may not stay Christian friendly IDK wait and see.
    Regarding the parental rating I'd give is of 15-16 I think it's too heavy issue-wise for a 13yo no need for them to delve into those issues there's plenty of time for that I like children to stay children as long as they can.

    I noticed channel 7 went back to the classics for thanksgiving weekend and showed the kid freindly claymation Christmas movies. I think they're getting the hint$
    If we stop watching their crapovision they don't get ratings, no ratings, no ads, no ad money no station no jobs. We need to make our dollars count.

    I like watching these movies and the guy from when calls the heart is in the second movie. Both very nice wholesome and cute movies.

    Maybe you can subscribe to pureflix and watch online if your internet speed is fast enough. I would ask them if that's possible first before paying the money.

    What age would you recommend as appropriate to handle some of those more adult storylines? Thanks

    I would say no younger than 13 (or whichever age you have taught/introduced sex). It has a mild "love" scene and a few choice words that would not be appropriate for youngsters.

    I would say 16 with good understanding. Some of it is so subtle it would go over youngsters heads

    I like good films, especially international ones, not the corny stuff. Sorry, but most Christian/religious films are HORRIBLE these days. Poor productions, just don't reach it. Anyhoo, I'd like to know if there is a service anywhere that edits mainstream films. I recently saw a good film and dontcha know, there was a FILTHY sex scene in it. I mean, wretched. The storyline was excellent. I'd love to see this thing but edit it. Maybe there is some software or some technique to upload and edit it? Shrugs. It's disheartening.

    The questionable content I have seen on This is Us has to do with bisexuality. Otherwise it is so refreshing to watch a show that is not full of sex.

    Thanks for the update, sounds like it may be going the way of how to get away with murder.

    Yes, they always tend to put that gay/bisexual undercurrent into an otherwise wholesome show. It can be an annoyance to see producers/directors bend to the wind like that.
