I remember when the whole family used to sit in front of the TV on Sunday night and watch TV together. Everyone was so excited and couldn’t wait to find out what this weeks episode would bring. Fast forward to now, many of the prime time shows are full of adult content, and well aren’t really family shows. So, you have your favorite show and your other family members have their favorite shows, but it’t not normally something you can do together.
Whenever I find a show that allows me to watch TV with my family I am all over it. This new show, Signed, Sealed and Delivered created by Martha Williamson, who also created Touched by An Angel, reminded me of well, many of the good family shows I grew up watching, and that is one of the many reasons why I enjoyed it.
The most recent episode, “The Future Me” was a moving tearjerker. The episode was about a couple with Down Syndrome. The young lady wrote a letter to herself 10 year earlier with a promise that she made to herself that she hadn’t fulfilled. When she got reunited with her letter, she realized that what she wanted had never happened and she was intent on fixing that ASAP.
The real problem was not her, but it was not her, but it was her family. Placed in a difficult decision the families have to decide what to do with these two lovebirds intent on making a go of it despite their non-traditional situation.
The show brought me back to a time I loved. When shows made you cry and made you feel something. When you left the TV with something to think about, and something to consider. I loved the characters, they were quirky, real and unique and yet there was a wonderful message behind the lines.
One of most important parts of the show, is it was a show that I could watch with my family on Sunday night. Starting our own tradition, knowing that we could talk about the topics and enjoy some great family fun.
The show airs at 8PM EST on Hallmark
