Burn Notice for the Boys
Well, believe it or not, the action-packed Fox TV show is actually one my boys' favorites right now.
Miro, my documentary-loving geek, likes it for the step-by-step do-it-yourself segments. We are a DIY family, after all.
Educational, ain't it?
Now don't get your panties in a bunch. The DIYs on the show aren't real. Some of them are, but a good chunk of the instructions have been pulled out or twisted to fallacy. Otherwise they wouldn't have been allowed to air. Pshaw. It's the idea of an ammo-making DIY on Primetime that really floors me. So much boldness! Love it!
Kenji, my little insatiable daredevil, likes the show for the action, of course.
It's a delicious James Bond fest but with more brains to it than just a parade of scantily-clad women. It creates a spark in a child's imagination (with my children anyway) and for me, that's always a good thing. I mean, just this morning, I spied the boys working on a 'bomb' using Lego bricks, Sculpey clay, and a couple of Slinkies. Haha!
Calm down. It's not set to explode any time soon.
