What's that show really saying???

Take a few minutes and think about your favorite TV show...see if you can determine the show's worldview. Is the "world" the show's about one in which there's a God, and a sense of right and wrong, or is the philosophy of the show one in which values are arbitrary? If aliens from outer space were trying to figure us out by tapping into television transmissions, I wonder what they'd think. They might conclude that we're a culture devoid of any religious faith, where personal preferences have replaced convictions. Everyone has some kind of worldview, and unfortunately the secular voices of the media, education, and pop culture ignore religion or paint it as some anti-intellectual crutch. All the more reason to express our faith openly; how else will people hear the voice of faith?
