Are You Just Watching? is about critical thinking for Christians as they watch popular media such as movies and TV shows. We are more than a Christian reviews site since PluggedIn Online already does such a wonderful job. We take a critical look at philosophies and ideas behind and promoted by entertainment media, and then discuss these based on a biblical worldview. For example, the evolutionism in Jurassic Park, the user-program relationship in Tron, or the messianic characteristics of Neo in the Matrix trilogy. Each conversation has one end-objective in mind, that you don't just watch, but also think and learn.

Love this Podcast!

This is the equivalent of coming over to a friend’s home and talking about a show that we watched. Sitting around a table and discussing the Biblical world view in contrast to the show, or even how it may complement it, can really open up thoughtful and meaningful interaction. I recommend this to anyone that desires to look deeper into God’s thoughts as we enjoy Hollywood’s fare.

Only if you have a brain

This wonderful podcast is only for people who have a brain (scarecrows need not apply) and do not want to live an unexamined life. The latest episode on commericals analyzes several ads on TV and radio and cast them in a completely new light. As the authors bring out, the commercials are not product enticements; they may also be subtle lifestyle inducements. At the very least, most are lifestyle endorsements. Very provocotive show. Has made our entertainment viewing choices much more important and our conversations during and after much more discriminating. Thanks for all your work, Eve and Tim.
