So much of my taste in movies and music has been formed by my dad sharing the things that he loves with me. I never would have listened to The Clash or Jim Croce, or watched movies like Dr Strangelove and North by Northwest if it wasn't for his recommendations.

Me too, and plenty of those are things that I've continued to love, like Star Trek.

I think it's important to have a connection with older cultural touchstones.

My kid and I bonded a lot over Star Trek TNG, and I love that the show imparts a lot of wisdom and ethical lessons, which have become a part of my kid's personality, just as they became a part of my personality when I was younger than he is now.
