What I will be watching on TV tonight
With lines like “First we crossed a river and scaled the cliffs of doom / Then we took a little break and went to the bathroom," it's not Spamalot. But it does feature knights, dragons, anthropomorphic animals, and songs ("The trajectory isn’t toward Thomas Malory, but to Miley Cyrus.") [amazing fact: after a patient lecture from my son, I learned this Saturday that Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana are the same person!] [I also must wonder what Hannah Montana's parents would have named her had their last name been "California" or "Massachusetts"...]. Anyway, endless narrative brevitized: Nickelodeon is growing future medievalists by showing a movie called The Backyardigans: Tale of the Mighty Knights.
