Episode 4 of Dragonfly Ripple is coming soon, but in the meantime, here's a bonus "JetPack Tiger" segment where Dashiell talks all about his world. Michael, David, Annaliese and Carlin will be back soon to talk a whole lot about Star Wars.

May 13, 2015

In this episode of Dragonfly Ripple: Bringing Up the Next Generation of Nerd, Michael and Carlin talk to the kids about Westerns…with a twist (or "twisterns" but we're not sold on that name). Carlin and Annaliese watched through the 1993-94 Bruce Campbell series on FOX, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. And Michael and David delved into the 1960s TV series (and 1990s Will Smith movie) The Wild, Wild West. Both shows are Westerns, but feature sci-fi, spy and steampunk elements.

The opening chat sets up our fourth episode by talking a bit about the order we present the Star Wars films to our children. Plus, in Jetpack Tiger, we talk about the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon.
