I was thinking back to when I was a kid, and shows that my mom wouldn't let me watch. Like "The Dukes of Hazzard". She said it was stupid and wouldn't let us watch it. I was the only kid in first grade that didn't get to watch it. Now that I'm older have seen the reruns, I agree it is pretty stupid. But it was just one more way in which I was out of touch with the other kids at school. I was also the only kid in 2nd grade that didn't get to watch "V".
She also didn't like us watching "Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot". I don't know why. I think she was ok with UltraMan though so we periodically got our giant monster fix.
Anyone else have experiences like this growing up? And now I wonder whether I'm making my kids into outcasts by saying no to "Dora the Explorer" because I find it annoying.
