Yes, Yes, I second this!  (We don't actually have a TV, but a new acquisition

(Quiets herself down.)  Ahem.  I don't usually do exclamation marks quite 
this much.
But sometimes you just have to.  Btw, I have a Gili, too, but a boy, really 
Gilon, aged 8... I'm reading Archer's Goon to him and the 10 year old boy.  
My daughter, aged 11, reads DWJ to herself already.  The littler ones just 
have to wait.
