I’m pretty convinced that what we watch as kids highly influences our TV choices later on. I’m not a scientist, but case in point: I grew up watching Monster Squad, which went on sale this week on Blu-ray. Now, as an adult, I can’t get enough of all things monster and horror.
Monster Squad – at least when you’re 6 years old – is the kid-friendly welcome mat to the horror genre. The flick, which follows a pre-teen monster club that battles classic movie monsters, taught me that wolfmen have nards, scary German guys are monster encyclopedias and you should always try to keep company with at least one virgin. It even had cool vampires pre-Twilight.
Okay, your turn. What are you loving this week in TV/books/tech/games? Anything? Don’t be shy, and remember to leave your e-mail address in case we put your pick in the mag. Sharing time ends Thursday at noon ET.
