This review is only for the episode: Atheist vs. Christians

**only for the episode:A THEIST VS. CHRISTIANS*** **the content may spoil some parts of this episode for readers**

For my movie/TV show review, I chose to watch an episode of 30 days (atheist living with a Christian family). We had already watched an episode of 30 days (when a Christians lives with a family of Muslims), and I found it really interesting and I really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to watching this episode where an atheist lives with a Christian family.

This episode tells about an Atheist woman named Brenda who moves in with a Christian family in Texas. The host family names are Michael and Tracy (mom and dad). The rules for Brenda is to stay with a Christian family for 30 days, attend weekly church services with her host family, and to participate in their bible studies. Over the 30 days, Brenda tries to emerge herself in the Christian faith, but doesn't really succeed (in my opinion). She often has to defend herself against others because she doesn't believe in a god, or gods, and the people around her find that offending. She even brings her host family to an atheist community to share her views on the world.

I feel that Brenda brought up good points and questions about god, and she made people think about what they were believing in. But overall, I don't think she really knew what the Christian religion was at the end. She didn't participate in the church ceremonies of singing hymns. Though she did feel more comfortable about opening up in the bible studies. I don't think she tried as hard as she could've. Overall, I give this episode a seven out of ten. I would still recommend it (to anyone), but I think the episode where the Christian man lives with a Muslim family will be more interesting and fun to watch.
