Finally a Show I Like Watching With My Kid: Phineas and Ferb

Oh, he's my nemesis. I can tell him everything! - Mad Scientist Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz

A secret-agent platypus? A mad scientist? Two genius kids and a brat sister? I wasn't so sure I was going to like this show, but after ten minutes I was hooked. Phineas and Ferb, a new Disney series, is one of those shows that is entertaining for kids but has plenty of adult humor. The adult stuff is subtle, so it's sort of like The Simpsons, but with the kid part geared for younger children.

This is a far cry from the earlier shows my daughter watched. I still get hate mail from my bad review of Lazy Town, which I labeled "evil".
