I realized last week that our kids have never seen The Wizard of Oz. I know, a gross oversight on my part. So tonight we rented it from Apple TV. We've only just arrived in the Land of Oz and already the kids have commented about how the view from Dorothy's window is so obviously a video screen, how the Land of Oz is completely fake looking (I told them it's not supposed to look real) and have had a debate about whether the Munchkins are children or not. Ethan's a little hung up on parts that look fake.

Granted, these are kids who have been fed pretty high tech media, but I'm hoping they can just enjoy it for what it is. Or at least not ruin it for me. :) I have to admit it's interesting to watch it through an adult's eyes.
