I'm not a fan of television (in any form including modern ones) for children.  But!  There are times when I just want to watch a movie!  The Princess Bride is one of my favorites.  My kids woke up from their nap around the first sword fight.  Yea, I didn't get to watch much of it alone.  :|  That's the only sword fight my children have ever seen.  But since that day we play "sword fight" everyday.
