TV you loved as a kid can become your kids' favorites, too. By Sierra Filucci, Common Sense Media editor
When I was a kid my dad and I would watch Star Trek together, laughing at Capt. Kirk's earnestness and betting on which red shirt would bite the dust. When I was a bit older, Star Trek: The Next Generation began, and Capt. Picard -- the brave but fair leader of the more modern USS Enterprise -- became my hero. Now that my daughter's 9, she's getting a taste of Picard's brilliance thanks to Netflix and my iPad.
