We watched the I’ve Got Batman in My Basement episode
of Batman: The Animated Series. It’s about some kids who stumble on Batman getting sprayed by a debilitating gas by the Penguin, then keeping him safe as best they can. It seemed not too far away from the Magic Treehouse books series that the guy is into.
I thought it was a safe choice, but it was more intense than I expected for the guy, while still being a good experience. There’s not much violence, aside from Batman throwing some goons and kicking the Penguin, but I forgot that kids aren’t inured to suspense like I am. He really tensed up when the goons were chasing the goons. The possibility of them catching the kids was a real possibility to him, not being familiar with the melodrama of Batman and superhero stories in general.
He did want to see more, but I guess I’ll have to manually prescreen the candidates. Which I don’t mind doing.
