I enjoyed reading Cosper’s connections between television shows and movies to the major themes. Even though the format became a bit redundant, the stories and perspective he offers is worth the effort and time. If you enjoy reading about popular culture and how it relates to the bigger narrative of life, you will enjoy this book.
I agree with Cosper's conclusion that we need more Christians in the entertainment industries. A biblical worldview needs to be present and visible, whether the movie or television program is "Christian" or not. We need the truth spoken in the dialects of culture that we can, and these are the most visible and consumed types.
