I must admit that DD did not love Gravity Falls at first. It took her a couple of episodes to warm up to it. After watching the first episode on TV, she thought it was strange and she could not decide if she liked it or not. However, a couple more episodes later, she decided it was a fun show to watch; now, whenever it is on TV, she would watch it. Then, she would tell us the plot of the episode during meal time. I think one of the many reasons why the show won her over is the silly sense of humor. I have caught her laughing hysterically while watching it. Because DD doesn't get to watch TV whenever she wants, it is great to have the Gravity Falls: Six Strange Tales DVD on hand. whenever she has spare time, she could watch Gravity Falls. The show is different from other kids' show DD normally watches. Gravity Falls is interesting, entertaining and fun for kids to watch.
