This week’s family movie suggestion is the Sue Thomas F.B. Eye Series.
Sue Thomas is a deaf woman who can read lips and speak. She’s lived a sheltered life for the most part, so when she’s accepted for a job with the F.B.I. hours from her hometown, she knows she’s embarking on an adventure.
Based on a true story, this series is one of the best I have ever seen and is on my top-ten favorites list of all time. Sue Thomas F.B. Eye has everything that makes a movie good – a touch of romance, drama, humor, action, and adventure. What’s more, the writers and producers managed to pull off this feat without the use of the distasteful Hollywood variety of violence, crass humor, foul language, and sexuality.
Sue Thomas F.B. Eye is a wholesome show, but it’s far from dull. Each episode includes the latest case to solve by Sue’s F.B.I. team, which includes:
Sue, a talented lip reader who helps solve many cases, but who struggles with being accepted because of her disability;
Jack, the lead investigator (with a dash of romance between he and Sue);
Lucy, Sue’s best friend and roommate, and the administrative assistant for Sue’s F.B.I. team;
Bobby, the Australian agent with a flair for fighting for the underdog;
Tara, who can figure out just about anything on the computer and is the technology guru of the group;
Demetrius, the serious, yet kind, agent who learns a lesson the hard way about how his workaholic tendencies affect his family; and
Miles, the annoying know-it-all who has it out for Sue in the beginning.
Some of the episodes include some scary parts that may be inappropriate for those under 10 only because of the theme. There is nothing objectionable in any of the episodes and Sue Thomas F.B.Eye is a perfect series for the entire family. I highly recommend purchasing the entire set. As of this review, there are five seasons, but I’m hoping they’ll make more soon!
