As the world waited to watch the new season of the acclaimed television program "Game of Thrones," my kids and I were instead having an all-day "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" marathon. The show, featuring cartoon versions of Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, and Thor, airs on Disney's XD and is pretty cool.

Especially if you're a three-year-old named Jack.

It seems like I used to watch better television before the kids showed up. Now my 51" HD TV is filled with "Curious George," "Avengers," "Transformers," and "Spider-man." I don't actually mind that much, but it does seem like I had better taste in television before kids. How about you?

Oh, and remember: AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!
