Do you tend to look for a spiritual meaning in shows or movies you watch - even if they don't have a spiritual theme?

Which 3 shows or movies have had the most spiritual meaning for you and why?

Yes, I try to find the spiritual meaning in television. Although I don't watch much, I like to see when there are influences of religion/spirituality. Here's my top 3:
  1. News
  2. True Blood
  3. Modern Family

Oh yes, always have even before I changed paths. It was something I just did, I never consciously sat down to do it.

Hmmmm let me think about which movies/shows(not in a particular order)...

1. Penny Serenade
2. Matrix
3. Charmed(obvious Im sure)

Truth be told I can find something spiritual in pretty much anything I watch even if its just from one scene something will resonate with me.

I always look for the spiritual meaning and there is one in many shows and movies.

My top one is Dead Poet's Society (movie) - absolutely riddled with spiritual significance.

My second would be Braveheart (movie) - you have to look a little harder for the spiritual meaning with that one, but it's there.

My third would be Stargate SG-1 (show) - honestly. It is. I can't watch it anymore though because I don't have the channels it airs on on Freeview and can't afford paid satellite TV right now.

The movie Stargate is a biggie for me as well. Never watched the tv shows but the movie I adore.

I actually did that last night.. found spiritual meaning in a movie.. A Knight's Tale of all things. Can a man change his stars? What a question for a movie with that soundtrack.

I don't think I've actually watched that one. Must look out for it. What's on the soundtrack?

It's a fun soundtrack, modern music in a classic tale. Heath Ledger film. I love it.
