Fatherhood²: The Panel Reviews… The Octonauts

Before I ask my parent panel to give us their opinions on some of the more serious or pressing issues affecting parents, I wanted to give them another chance to air their thoughts on some more children’s TV.

I’ve actually posted my thoughts on the undersea adventurers on a number of ocassions (“I love The Octonauts, but…“, “The Ultimate Octonauts Quiz” and “There’s No Place for Goodies and Baddies in our House” to name but three) – so I’ll spare you more raving from me. But I was pleased to find out my panel were slightly more even on the subject, some positive like me, some a little more critical.
