My Opinion of Series 2
I tend to agree with sm00bs. I think Rachel is just coming across as "I'm doing a children's show." I HATE the intermediate "times" - "Counting Time", "Story Time", and most of all "Hopping Time." HOPPING! Is that to fulfill some mandate that children have to move for a certain amount of time in each half hour?
That said, Jack loves the new series. Especially Happy Birthday. He keeps saying and signing it, especially when he sees candles. He signs Happy Birthday, not candle. And now, he can sign cake.
Actually, Jack's signs have exploded in the past week. He can do a lot of the colors, thanks to Box of Crayons, and to me sitting and watching with him.
