The following are my recommendations and do not reflect the views of any person or organization.
Carter–A TV show about a TV actor who returns to his hometown and begins solving crimes. It’s a funny show with lots of humor and some action and mystery, but follows the usual theme of the “civilian” who solves crimes much like Castle or Murder She Wrote. I found the light-hearted mood of the show to be refreshing. 4.3/5
Smallfoot–A movie about a Yeti who comes across the mythological creature known as Smallfoot (aka humans). The movie is filled with tons of humor; there are moments you just don’t stop laughing for minutes. There isn’t a lot of action or violence, which makes it a great family movie. I enjoyed how it had a lesson but didn’t hit you over the head with it. Also, the animation was great–you can see each hair on the Yetis. 4.4/5
Total Dramarama–A TV show that takes place in a daycare and showcases the crazy adventures of the kids in it. At first I thought this would be a show really directed to very young audiences, but I found that even “older” younger audiences would enjoy it and maybe even “older” audiences. They don’t give you life lessons all the time; most of the episodes focus on the crazy things that happen in daycares but just cracked up to eleven. 4.4/5
Minecraft Evolution SMP–A group of Minecraft YouTubers (including SystemZee, Netty Plays, and Solidarity) “travel” through the different versions of Minecraft showcasing how it has evolved. On Oct. 1, they celebrated their one-year anniversary, which also was close to the “soft reboot” after Grian’s departure. The Evolutionists were kicked out of their old area and forced to begin again (but not completely from scratch–they were allowed to bring some items with them). Right now, the Evolutionists are building bases and getting started, but I’m sure the pranks and other mischief will begin again soon. In the meantime, they’ve added a Death Counter and the loser will face some form of public embarrassment. 4.3/5
