Black Mirror and Kimchi

Oliver was getting ready for bed tonight.

I watched this episode of Black Mirror today that you wouldn’t be able to watch,” I said. “It was very scary, with horror and a scary mansion, and spiders and fighting.”

I already saw that episode,” Oliver replied.

Discussion ensued: Oliver’s always expressed a strong aversion to anything of this ilk.

Was watching that episode sort of like how you ate all the kimchi at Seoul Food the other day, even though it was very spicy?”, I asked him.

Yes!”, he replied enthusiastically. “It’s quality content, that’s scary. Kimchi is quality food, that’s very spicy.”

We looked up the Common Sense Media guide to Black Mirror and we agreed with its advice: good for older teens, too much for kids. Your kid may vary.
