What's YOUR favorite TV show?

Also, I have an actual homeschool question this time too. :). Are any of your little ones learning typing on the computer? Any program you recommend? My sons 8 and is interested in learning so he "can type fast like mom".

 That's funny...My little 6 yr old boy asked me just last week if he could learn to type fast "like mom"... So, I got out an older laptop and let him type away. I think it's also good for his spelling practice.

We love Dance Mat! And an app called Tap Typing.


i will confess, under great duress, to a slight, hardly noticeable addiction to Bravo, and an all out obsession with Investigation Discovery channels.

Quoting jsbuck:

 I really don't watch any tv : ). 

We like Dance Mat Typing http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/.

Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad. Those are the only currently-airing shows we watch.

I've been watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix. It's horrible! But I can't stop!

 We watch the big bang, scandal, and grey's anatomy on the laptop, we don't have cable.

I am a very fast columbus style typer, so my boys play on the keyboard games on abcya.com to improve their speed, but we haven't really starteds teaching to "type" properly.
