I wish there's a very special episode that teaches us the dangers of associating with strangers on an aggregated video site.
5 stars for Chet and his tireless work on dangerous video games responsible for pastor-related shootings nationwide.

Due to the economic downturn, the Camdens have had to find work in Canada and are now living in the Sunnyvale trailer park. I would pay to see that.

If I lived in that house, the first person I'd turn a gun on would be myself.

Watching 'Gone with the Wind'... on a SCHOOL night!?

YOUNG LADY, ARE YOU PRETENDING AGAIN.
WHAT HAVE WE TOLD YOU ABOUT USING YOUR IMAGINATION. YOU KEEP THAT UP, YOU'RE GOING TO END UP KILLING SOMEONE.
Hey look, the gun kid is played by a young Leon S. Kennedy. 7th Heaven dad, you're small time.

Never watched this show. Does it consist entirely of not-even-thinly veiled preaching?
Also: I like to imagine America is really like this.
While there is always some moral core that ties separate plot-lines together during the episode, the show largely focuses on how the family spies on and rats out one another.
Say the moral of the story is "Respect". Well, the typical plot could be something like Matt and his friend get disrespected at the local eating establishment. While Mary and Lucy team up to pick on some girl at school. Ruthie treats the dog poorly, so either mom or dad have to set her straight. Now, Matt comes in and tells dad about those nasty bullies, and Eric informs the police (Officer Mike). Simon overhears Lucy and Mary discussing how bad they felt about treating some loser like crap, and immediately tells Robbie, the ex-boyfriend living in the attic in the garage. Well, Robbie goes to dad's church and explains the problem using phony aliases ("I have a friend...etc...") to see what he should do. Meanwhile Ruthie is hiding in the closet while Matt and his friend discuss whether or not they should press charges against the ruffians who slandered them with "hate speech", and since this is Ruthie, you can rest assured that she'll end up using those words several times by the end of the episode. When Lucy comes in on Ruthie calling the dog a "nigger", Lucy realizes that words can hurt and goes tell Mary that they have to set things right with the dweeb at school. As a way to wrap things up, all these events will come out in the open during one of their famous "family meetings" and everyone will learn that one must respect our fellow man if we ever hope to survive this wacky world we live in!
Oh, and some time during the episode, Simon will probably get punked out by a family member, because he's a fucking retard and nobody likes him.
TL;DR While every episode is a very special episode, their flavor of christianity is so milquetoast that it takes a backseat to family shenanigans.
Don't forget, for some inexplicable reason, several bits of the twin boys baby-talking.
I always figured they had to be the kids of a producer or something.

Helpful hint for writers: If you aren't The Ramones, you need to pick a different name for your rebels without a cause.

Jesus approves of 7th Heaven week.

If games are murder simulators, shouldn't pastor have gotten worse than a flesh wound?
Kid was obviously trying to stop him from making that drug deal.

Hey pastor. Played some video games now I'm gonna randomly shoot you dude.

It would have been really funny if he had gotten shot again after coming out and saying "I'm fine".

was the kid with the gun the kid from kazaam?
|Aernaroth2 - 2010-05-25 |
Only in America would not giving the proper modicum of respect to your father's gun be such an aggregating factor to shooting a pastor.
That woman makes it sound like the gun is the victim in the whole thing.

These are awesome garbage. I had never seen any of this show before this week.

You can bet somebody is writting in a message board right now that tv today is trash because they don't produce shows like this anymore. Or that show where a girl talked to god.
You talking about Joan of Arcadia? gah, that show had a high cringe factor. Wasn't she in the unaired Babylon Fields pilot?
You know what's the most shocking thing? That show was less preachy than this one. This one was fueled by pure paranoia from over protective parents.
For example from the Hallmark Channel forums 24-May-2010:
"Nobody does shows like TBAA, LHOTP, The Waltons, 7th Heaven anymore and that is so sad."
There's a lots of threads over there with people complaining about how 7th Heaven keeps gets getting put on and taken off, or bumped by that damn Martha Stewart.
In a surprising turn of sanity, most of the IMDb discussions seem to be lengthy endeavors to pick the most ridiculous scenes.

"She's seven, we shouldn't have to tell her anything!"
Isn't that guy also Dennis and Dee's mom? I like his other family better. I don't mean I like their show better, though I do, I mean I think I'd enjoy the company of drunken sociopaths more than these preachy weirdos.

The bible says that having fun and being happy invariably lead to murder.

That stupid brat hadn't even played enough of the video games to finish the job. When you can't put two in a preacher, you've got no business being the whitebread teen villian in anything.
