Watch Sons of Thunder: Redemption on Pure Flix {Season Finale Review + Pure Flix Giveaway} #SonsOfThunderMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork #PureFlix

 Disclosure: Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a temporary subscription for this review. Opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

If I'm being 100% honest, I find myself watching less and less TV these days. Among other reasons, I so often find that it is truly hard to find something to watch that is both written for/appealing to adults that is also free from excessive language, violence, sex, etc. When I'm watching TV in my living room, I don't want to have to worry about my kids walking into the room and seeing or hearing something they shouldn't. And honestly? There's not a lot of adult shows that really fit that, are there? 

This is one reason I was excited to check out the new Pure Flix show Sons of Thunder: Redemption. 

Sons of Thunder: Redemption is a spin-off of the original Sons of Thunder series. This new show follows another former member of the Devil’s Hand who is righting wrongs and spreading the love of Jesus.

While I'm sure those who watched the previous show are sure to want to check out this newest addition, I must say that not being all that familiar with the original, this show is enjoyable to watch whether you've seen the original or not. 

I was recently given the chance to check out a recent episode to share my thoughts with you. 

Episode Synopsis: After being kicked off the ranch, Jacob goes to see Ethan and encourages him to mend the mistakes of the past. Rodeo finally takes place, but will the Devil’s Hand ruin the fun?
Episode 6, Do or Die is the season finale of Sons of Thunder: Redemption. As such, you're certainly want to catch up before checking out this one! In this episode, we deal with some important themes like jealousy, letting go of the past, accepting responsibly and making things right and apologies/forgiveness.
Oftentimes with Christian entertainment, it can be difficult to find a balance between having good Christian content, without coming across over the top preachy or too perfect. I felt like this episode really did this quite well. The Christian content is definitely there, and not in the least bit subtle with specific mentions of Bible verses and talk of Jesus... and yet we see imperfect characters working through struggles as well. Bible Verses that played an important role in this story included:

    • For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23 (NIV)

    • Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)

We see these verses played out in this episode quite beautifully, and it seemed like a really nice conclusion to the season, which had me looking forward to what might come next. 

But as I mentioned, despite featuring Christian themes and characters-- as in life, things are still a bit messy. While there is no language or anything like that, there are guns featured in this episode, so still not one that is appropriate for younger audiences. I will say that this was fairly minimal and certainly nowhere near as violent or gory as we see on mainstream shows. I might even say it's perhaps a little sanitized compared to what might go down in the real world, but personally I cannot say that this bothered me in the slightest as I tend to steer clear of gun violence. 

Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable episode and a nice way to close out the season. If you were a fan of the original Sons of Thunder or are just looking for a new show to enjoy, be sure to sign up for Pure Flix to watch this series HERE
