Got a witness!
I watch Malcolm with an extremely bright, very verbal eight year old. We
usually roll on the floor. He didn't warm to the Shakespeare stuff the
way I did, so it wasn't the best experience we've had watching. (If you
get a chance to catch the one where the family is caught behind a
highway wreck and have existential crises, well then...) But he loved
Puck (Tucci?) in MND when we saw it, so maybe some time down the road.
BTW, I don't think you can start too young. Of course he doesn't
understand it all yet. But I'm 47, and I don't understand it all yet.
