Pure Flix Series Vindication Review

While I am down with Co-Vid19, I took the opportunity to binge watch the show Vindication.  This show is a police drama that is set in the suburbs of Dallas.  Detective Gary Travis is the lead character that is portrayed.

First off, I know this sounds harsh, but I say it when I review most Pure Flix shows.  The acting is good but not great.  The first episode didn’t snag me.  I had to get past that one issue.  The moral of the show was good and it was squeaky clean, which makes me happy.  It was just a struggle.

Then, I watched the second episode.  By the end of last night, I watched all 10 because I was invested in the lives of these characters.  You forget that the acting isn’t great and you see the storyline.  Then, you see the grace of God and how He moves throughout all situations, regardless of if it is good or bad.  He is glorified at the end.

Adult Subjects

Another impressive thing was that Pure Flix did not shy away from tough topics.  I do not suggest this show for 12 and under.  I do encourage that parents watch with their children because the themes of each episode are pertinent to the issues we have today.

Dark web, sex trafficking, drugs, rape, infidelity.  Those are a few of the topics that were written for this show.  There is no nudity, swearing, or anything of that sorts BUT the topics are tough ones.  Please be mindful of that when you watch this (which I highly encourage).

Living the Life

I am a cop’s daughter.  There were things that were definitely relatable as Det. Travis deals with his own family.  He can’t separate “the life” from home life.  It weighs on him, but the wife in this show reminds me of my Oak, my mama.  She is steadfast with her prayers and faith, always trying to reach deeper into him and point him to the cross.  What a beautiful depiction.

I am not super excited about Co-vid19 but I am super excited that season 2 is out 🙂  So, I’m heading over to Pure Flix, signing in, and getting ready to watch it to see what happened to the storylines I was so vested in last night.
