Doctor Who is one good show my kids introduced me to. My oldest son started watching it and together we went back and watched all the old (and by “old” I mean “post-2005″) episodes. Now you can stream the really old (and by “really old” I mean “classic”) episodes from Netflix. We’re talking black and white. The Daleks look the same, though.
Boys love Doctor Who. It’s silly, smart, funny, and science fiction-y. The monsters are scary and weird. And, do you know what? The story lines are fantastic.
A few months ago my younger son and I were catching up on some Doctor Who. As we watched David Tennant’s last episode, we held hands and we cried. It’s good stuff—good mother-son bonding stuff.
