Thursday Movie Picks - TV Edition: Boarding School
This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is a cultural difference that I will never be able to wrap my head around: boarding school. I can't image sending my kid away for school and seeing them at the end of each day. I know it's normal, I just couldn't do it. When it comes to this theme, absolutely NOTHING came to my mind. Several movies did, but not TV shows. It took me a while, but I managed to string something together.
1) The Facts of Life - This was a show that was occasionally on Nick and Nite that I'd watch. I remember liking it, but at this point I think I remember the theme song more than I do the actual episodes.
2) Umbrella Academy - I gave up watching this after a few episodes, but if I recall the kids were at a boarding school/home school type situation a la X-Men.
3) Wolfboy and the Everything Factory - This is a cute show on Apple TV. Wolfboy gets sent to a boarding school before he finds himself in the Everything Factory.
