Numberblocks is great! And tied in really well with the way they introduced maths at F’s school.

My daughter has moved away from children's programming for the past couple of years, in favor of YouTubers but the past couple days she tuned in to Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous on Netflix and we've been enjoying that together.

Bluey is EVERYTHING.

i catch bluey from time to time. it's well animated and usually has a good message imparted gently. be more patient. share stuff. everybody gets ill. watch out for faeries...
today's episode had them making a video for youngest child who was in hospital and the awkward acting in the video, looks to camera, fluffled lines, was caught so well, subtley pointing out it was a thing within a thing.

My 11-year-old and I are really enjoying The Mysterious Benedict Society at the moment.

Looking for recommendations. A couple of years ago my kid's favorite show was Just Add Magic. More recently he was really into Secrets of Sulphur Springs and Mysterious Benedict Society. We tried Ghost Writer a while back and Evermoore more recently but neither stuck. Anything good out there along those lines for an 11 year-old?

This is in a different lane from the reference points you are giving but my 8- and 10-year-old are both really into the original Avatar: The Last Airbender. other than that, following the thread to see what others suggest!

Nothing compares to Avatar: The Last Airbender. We binged it at the beginning of the pandemic and I think my now 8 yo has watched the whole series 3 or 4 times since. The Legend of Korra is worth checking out if hungry for more. It's not at the level of Avatar, but it has its moments. On a far different note from Avatar, my daughter is re-watching Gravity Falls for like the third time as well.
