Brain Games

Please don’t tell the parenting police, but we love TV. We even learn from it sometimes!

Lei has discovered a new show for us to bond over. Since we depend on Netflix for our TV viewing, we usually “discover” shows once they are well into their broadcast history. This one may not be new to you, but it’s new to us: Brain Games.

What would you say if we told you these two boxes were the exact same shade of gray? Can you see it? Gradients and shadows give your brain clues based on your past experiences with shadows. But shadows can lie to you.

Especially for someone who has a major sensory difference (deafness), and a variety of sensory integration challenges, this show is a fascinating exploration of how the brain processes information. Fun for the whole family!

Lei, her dad and I have bonded over some really awesome TV shows that we still love and talk about to this day. Among our favorites are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin and Doctor Who. We’ve spent pleasant afternoons or evenings watching them, and had lively dinner-table conversations about these shows, dissecting plot, subtext, symbolism, and character traits both base and noble. Our Brain Games-inspired discussions are bound to be a lot of fun.
