Toronto, ON Canada
Watching the first two episodes-and ONLY teh first two episodes-doesn't mean you know what this show is about. I have watched every single episode of 7th heaven. I started watchign it when I was 8, and now I am 19. I grew up with these characters, and find myself relating certain situations in my life to things I've seen on this show. It's important to remember that 7th hevaen isn't a "christian" tv show. it went on normal cable TV. Nobody ever said that this show was created to teach Christians how to live, so you can't judge an apple based on your expectations of an orange. The things I don't like is that it isn't very realistic. If you watch the later seasons, the kids really don't have much knowledge of hte Bible and basic Christian beliefs. How is that possible if your dad is a minister? And yes, there's a lot of mention of boyfriends/girlfreinds. the oldest son has had so many girlfriends, I've lost count. But in the end, this show promotes wholesome family values-no smoking, no drugs, no sex before marriage-and it is very entertaining. and even if the kids do hide things from thier parents, in teh end the parents ALWAYS find out and the kids always get in toruble for it. And just because the parents hide one thing from each other doesn't mean they're evil. if that's what you think, I'd love to see how you and your wife are.
