    I loved episode 136. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I used to be the same way with my kids , thinking that tv was “evil” lol. We have found so many great movies, especially the Christmas classics, to watch together. My husband gets carried away a bit, I’ll be at a women’s retreat, he’ll watch Conan the Barbarian with the boys. I just shake my head. Flash is is a good show and Madam secretary, Merlin was really good we found that one on Netflix. We like Sherlock as well.

    • Thanks Susan! Glad you liked it! Your husband reminds me of the time I fell asleep watching Indiana Jones with the kids and I woke up to them screaming: “We’re not supposed to be watching this…” Good times as a dad! #dadfail
