“Any Christian can relate to being in a season of life that you don’t want to be in. I think [Gregory] is a good example of what we choose to take away from that. I love his grace story of learning how to be content, whatever the circumstances, and what God is doing here in this season, at this place, even though this is not [his] preferred destination.” - Kathryn Freeman, TC contributor
“This season has established to me that this school is a place where you can fail. In the aftermath of all these failings, this is a place of incredible grace. This is kind of what the kingdom of heaven looks like in the here and now, because you’ve got the imperfection, but then you also have that gracious space in the aftermath of that imperfection, and almost every character has experienced that in one way or another.” - Josh Larsen, TC editor
“Great storytelling, character development, and music. The story of a man going from living for himself to becoming involved in something greater than himself: people fighting against oppression.” - Jessie Stimpson, TC listener
Dead to Me
Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
The Midnight Club
“What does it mean to be a whole person? How do we deal with grief, disappointment, pain? What is the purpose of our relationships? I see all sorts of gospel themes about how God has made us for wholeness and flourishing and what it looks like when we lose hope and have the strength to deal with suffering.” - Brian Howell, TC contributor
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
“Beyond the science fiction, it’s a really well written narrative about leadership and calling.” - Kathryn Freeman, TC contributor
I think that’s important for Christians, especially American Christians with an evangelical background . . . and especially white male Christians . . . since we are the power pull, we have to learn that there is real joy in finding out that we’re wrong, and real joy in forgiveness and finding other perspectives . . . this show captures that in a wonderful sci-fi way.” - Joe George, TC contributor
