JustMe5 Stars Out Of 5NIce little surpriseJanuary 28, 2016JustMeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5You always wonder if spin offs will be as good as the original series. This was a nice surprise. Great kids program with some good message underneath it all. Keeping it for our library.
Christiana3 Stars Out Of 5Good message, not as good as Phil Vischer's other videosJanuary 4, 2016ChristianaQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Because Phil Vischer is so talented and I love his other videos, I guess my expectations were too high for this one. This video has a great message, but it lacked the clever "zing" I am used to from Phil Vischer. My 7-year-old liked it, though, but I thought the story used to present the message was uninspired (the best word I can think of is lame.) By way of context, Phil brought this same message to adults in his excellent auto-biographical book, "Me, Myself and Bob" -- one of the best books I read last year. I also highly recommend Phil's "What's in the Bible" series.

All to often I find myself trusting in my own strength and ability to tackle a difficult task. It isn't until things go awry (and they always do), that I put my focus on God and ask him for help and guidance.
"Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9" tells the story of Buck Denver. Buck has big dreams of carrying Gods love to every corner of the Milky Way! In order for Buck to make his dream come true he needs a few things...things like a crew, a spaceship and his Captain's license. When the transponder in Sector 9 stops working, Bucks jumps at the opportunity to make his dream come true. He finds himself leading a real mission trip into deep space, but things don't happen at all like he imagined. If he is doing what God wants him to do, why is everything going wrong?
"Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9" is part of the "Buck Denver asks...What's in the Bible' series. It is created by Phil Vischer, who is also the creator of VeggieTales. It teaches our children about God's love through the use of puppets and CGI.
My children had very mixed reviews on the movie. My 4 year old son loved the show and has watched it twice so far. My almost 6 year old daughter ran from the room crying when a little red alien popped on the screen. She hasn't come back to finish the show. I was watching the show as well, and didn't find it particularly scary, but whatever it was spooked her and she won't come back.
The show has a great message to share with our children. All too often we have big dreams and can't see the opportunities that are right in front of us. Buck learns the lesson of Love - When God puts someone in your path who needs help, help him. It's so simple. We often dream of saving the entire world, but often forget to help that person right in front of us.
"Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9" also has a strong message of putting our trust in God to lead us through difficult times. I love the way they explained this, through the use of Jellyfish and the current. This was particularly relevant since we live on an island and often talk of the current.
"Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9" is a great Christian movie to share with the family on movie night. Galaxy Buck is available now on JellyTelly, an online streaming site featuring shows and movies to teach your kids about God, The Bible, and Faith.
I was given access to view a complimentary screening of "Galaxy Buck Mission to Sector 9". All opinions are 100% my own.
GabrielleLondon, OntarioAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Such a great message!October 19, 2015GabrielleLondon, OntarioAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I've watched a few "What's in the Bible" videos before so I guessed that "Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9" was going to have a great message. It did not disappoint. The message of this wonderful kids video is that God isn't after you doing stuff but rather He's after you. He just wants you. Such an important message. I was extremely impressed by how profoundly and yet clearly that message was given. To be honest, it was so clear that at one point, I was thinking, "What's wrong with me that I would think anything else? I keep believing a lie"
The creator, Phil Vischer, is the same man responsible for the creation of VeggieTales and he uses that same creative gift to make this video high quality and entertaining. I would recommend it for the age 4 - 10 range. One small warning: Galaxy Buck is very loosely based on the Star Trek franchise and therefore, the characters from Galaxy Buck run into aliens who are mildly scary to look at. At the same time the aliens make their appearance, music in minor tones plays which gives it a scary feel. It is mild but sensitive children might be upset by it.
This 40 minute long video gets two enthusiastic thumbs up.
BTW. I got the opportunity to pre-screen this video in exchange for an honest review.
SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Galaxy not so Far AwayOctober 15, 2015SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Have you ever felt like you just werent doing enough for God? A friend of mine from college is in Togo, Africa right now where he and his family are helping to run a clinic. An amazing ministry. One that reaches the lives of the community. And here I amworking at a corporate job, living in a suburb of Nashville. So, yeah, sometimes Id like to make a bigger impact on Gods kingdom.
Buck Denver wants to do something big for God. Wait. I said that wrong. Buck Denver wants to do something BIG for God. Tired of answering phones and sending out tote bags, Buck dreams of an adventure. His poster even confirms it: God wants you to do big things.
When a transponder goes down on an uninhabited planet (or is it?) in Sector 9, Buck seizes the opportunity to not only make a tremendous difference, but also to experience the adventure hes always longed for.
While there, Buck and his ragtag crew learn an important lesson. Not that God wants you to do big things but that God wants you. Period. End of discussion.
While I chuckled in a few places during this 40 minute show, I didnt find it as funny as Veggie Tales. Granted, there were many references to Star Wars and Star Trek which fans of Sci-Fi might enjoy. Ive never even (gasp) watched Star Wars from beginning to end in one sitting. A lot of the background props in the scenes were humorous (be sure and read the post it notes on Bucks computer and the motivational posters on the walls of his office). The humor will probably be most appreciated by children who are older. My 16-year-old nephew would love this.
From the creator of Veggie Tales and Whats in the Bible?, Galaxy Buck teaches kids an important lesson. Even those of us who seemingly are doing small things, are right where God can use us. Perhaps thats an important reminder for all of us, not just the kids.
