Forgive You" review by Suzanne
November 18, 2012 on GMC
This is an interesting reality show. They have a
counselor guide someone who wants to forgive or be forgiven,
to meet with the other person so they can move on with their
lives. The first episode has four different stories. First
there is a woman who was bullied in high school in the 80's,
and she meets with a few people from back then (most were
wise enough not to participate) about how she felt and
forgives them. The second is a man who was with Robert F.
Kennedy when he got shot, who has blamed himself since then,
and he goes to Kennedy's grave to make peace. Another
person, who bilked his family and friends in a ponzi scheme,
and went to prison for it, tries to get them to forgive him.
And the last and most interesting, a woman who teenaged son
was shot during an argument, not only forgives the guy who
shot him but they live next door to each other!
I would definitely watch this regularly if I had time...
and I'm not a big fan of reality shows, but this is very
interesting. I'm not religious, but even though there is
some religious stuff mentioned, it's not too heavy-handed or
preachy. I do agree that forgiveness can help you feel
better and move on with your life. You should check this out
if you are interested in this idea, too.
Reality television is injected with a much needed dose of
genuine honesty when the new documentary reality series "I
Forgive You," premieres on GMC TV on Sunday, November 18th.
From the Oscar and Emmy-award winning producer Arnold
Shapiro, "I Forgive You" brings together two parties who
have experienced real-life traumatizing events to overcome
hatred, anger and revenge and to facilitate healing. "I
Forgive You" allows each individual the opportunity to
forgive someone who has hurt them or a loved one, either
emotionally or physically.
Guided with mediation and healing support from educator and
therapist Angie Richey, each one hour episode brings viewers
into four stories of individuals seeking and receiving
forgiveness. Emotional, uplifting and heartfelt, audiences
watch the power of forgiveness including: a woman bullied
faces her tormentors 25 years later; parents look to forgive
their son who lost their life savings in a Ponzi scheme; a
mother whose Christian faith braves her to forgive her son's
murderer; and a man present at the assassination of Robert
Kennedy seeks forgiveness after he is slain.
"I Forgive You" debuts Sunday, November 18 at 9 p.m. EST
with encore presentations at 10 PM and 11 PM; and again
Wednesday, November 21, exclusivly on GMC TV.
