infecting young minds

I keep putting off a post regarding a couple kids shows and movies that turned out better than I expected, but thinking about that made me focus in on something new.

Whenever we watched TV shows or movies with Z., we would always make a point to talk about them a bit afterwards. Easy questions, like I'd mention something I liked, and ask her something she liked, etc. In the past year or so, though, we have started going a little farther with the conversations. She and I watched... a lot of Phineas and Ferb this past weekend, and after the shows, we started off with the parts we liked. And then segued into how we like how the show is set up (parallels and running gags) and how it plays with its own formula to a very creative end, and how a fair amount of the show is about creativity itself. Obviously she didn't use the same English-major terms I'm bandying about here, but I could really tell that she got these things, and man, that's a delightful experience right there.
