My son on the other hand, simply loves all those science factoids they have on the channel. These days especially, when there are no new episodes on Nickelodeon or the Cartoon Network, I find my 9year old watching National Geographic documentaries a lot. (When I was his age, I thought documentaries were utterly boring!) Last weekend, on a Saturday afternoon, I found him watching a documentary on wild beasts having sex. It alarmed me a little because sex per se isn't a subject we've discussed with him. But I could not freak out. What was I supposed to say to him when he's watching an educational show?
Some of the shows my boys regularly watch on the NGC include:
- Air Crash Investigations and the rest of those "investigation" specials (for the CSI in us!)
- Megastructures (Men and their fascination for building things!)
- National Geographic Specials (featuring different topics monthly)
- I Didn't Know That
- Top 5
Although Taboo is yet to premiere in the NGC Asia, Western viewers, however, will be able to watch it this weekend Sunday, August 5th at 9pm ET/PT, with replay on Wednesday at 10.
