TGIF: Watching Sue Thomas F.B.Eye {Link up}


Welcome to my link up -- Thank God It's {Family Fun} Friday !!

I want to encourage you to create memories, build family traditions, and have fun with your family!  Because children grow up faster than you think possible . . . 

Many families look forward to having a Family Fun Night on Fridays.  Is this something your family does?  Tell us about it!  What are your favorite Friday night activities?  How does your family have fun and create memories together?  Please share!

Sue Thomas F.B.Eye

Recently, my family and I have been excitedly watching some old episodes of the TV show Sue Thomas F.B.Eye.  This series was originally aired on Pax from 2002 to 2005, and my second oldest daughter, Ashlyn, was one of the show's biggest fans during that time!  Inspired by Deanne Bray, the deaf actress who plays the part of Sue Thomas, Ashlyn studied American Sign Language (ASL) on her own and then took some college-level ASL classes to increase her understanding and ability to communicate with the deaf.  

Recently, we resurrected our love for Sue Thomas F.B.Eye and have been watching our collection of old episodes.  Loosely based on the real life story of Sue Thomas, a deaf woman whose ability to read lips landed her a job with an elite surveillance team at the FBI, this series features action, suspense, a little romance, humor, and clever dialogue!  It also helps the viewer identify with the plight of those who are hearing-impaired, and shows how deaf people can be helped to live a normal life by owning a service dog.  (Levi, Sue's hearing dog, is definitely one of the stars of the show!)

This series is fabulous, family-friendly entertainment! My only caveat is that some episodes may be too intense for young children, so you will need to use discernment as to what your children can handle.

You can order the Sue Thomas F.B.Eye series on DVD here, in addition to the book that inspired the series, Silent Night.  Your purchase will help support the real Sue Thomas, who now struggles with M.S. in addition to her deafness.

Friday nights are perfect for a Sue Thomas Marathon!!!  :)
