Everybody’s Got Religion This Week

Between “24” and “Heroes” on Monday and “Gilmore Girls” last night, television viewers are getting a heavy dose of religion.

With the recent re-appearance of the shamed President Charles Logan from Season 5–Jack needs his help tracking down a Russian terrorist–suddenly talk has turned to prayer, redemption, and forgiveness. When Jack questions Logan’s motivation to help his country (and rightly so), Logan urges Jack to believe that he has “re-found” religion and his true goal is redemption.

On the “Heroes” episode “Company Man,” Claire’s Mom finally sees what her “special” daughter can really do–come back from the dead–and Mom begins talking about resurrection (Claire’s that is) and the role of faith in surviving the latest family crisis.

And then on the “Gilmore Girls” episode “Will You Be My Lorelai Gilmore?” Lorelai ends up negotiating a truce between Lane–about to give birth to twin boys–and her fundamentalist Christian mom. Mom wants the boys raised as good Christians, and Lane says absolutely not: her kids are going to have the “freedom from religion” that she never enjoyed growing up. But when Lorelai suggests to Lane that maybe her kids will actually want church, Bible camp, and all the related stuff that Lane hated when she was a child, though shocked at the thought, Lane caves to Lorelai’s sense, and Mom and Lane make up.

So everybody’s jumping on the television religion bandwagon this week, and with a new “Lost” airing tonight, I’m guessing we’re not done yet.

    …and then there’s the Canadian show Little Mosque on the Prairie, and that’s on every Wednesday evening on CBC, with a rebroadcast of last week’s episode every Monday evening. **whew!**
