Dinner conversation, what's that? Family Friendly TV suggestions.
August 10, 2014 5:33 PM Subscribe
Every night my 9 year old daughter asks to watch a movie while we eat dinner. We are big movie people, rarely ever watch commercial TV and don't have the Aussie version of cable, but we like to buy DVD TV series' or stream them. Some nights dinner is the perfect 'eat on the couch' meal, but a movie is too long if it's during the week. I am looking for some suggestions of shows we could all enjoy that are 30 minutes, or an hour.

Miss 9 loves movies and TV shows but can be a bit hesitant to watch things that are scary or too emotional (Frankenweenie was a disaster!) She loves anything fantasy and superhero related.
My partner and I would prefer something live action rather than animated, and if it has some good characters and a half decent plot then that's a bonus.
Currently we are reading Harry Potter which is a big hit and she is a huge fan of spy and mystery books.
Any ideas? What do your kids like to watch?
