TV can be a highly instructional medium. Studies have shown that children from ages 3 - 5 who watch an hour of TV a day have greatly increased letter, number, and shape recognition when they enter school. (These studies were mentioned in an article in the Washington Post (12/31/06 Outlook section); sadly, references to the studies were not given.)
Below are some of the many things I have learned from watching TV. Included are the shows from whence these lessons came.
Also, teenage boys know more than anyone else.
