Mayim Bialik on 'Star Wars,' the Maccabeats, and kid-starring shows

The Emmy-nominated Big Bang Theory actress is already back to work on season 6 after her car accident. Shortly before her ordeal, the mother of Miles (6) and Frederick (3) gave us a peek into what’s playing big in her house.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What childhood favorites (movies, books, TV, music) are you sharing/looking forward to sharing with your kids?

MAYIM BIALIK: We have a pretty much no media house. They have seen some episodes of Sesame Street and on airplanes, my husband has had them play games and read interactive books on his iPad. Someday, they will be ready and we both can’t wait to show our sons all of the geeky stuff we love: Star Wars movies especially.

We play adult music for our kids and don’t do any kids music. They Might Be Giants put out an amazing kids album though that we love, called No! Our boys like Johnny Cash and early 1960s folk as well as jazz. Our older son seems to have a passion for Rihanna, which he hears on the radio.

Both of our boys love Adele, and they also love the Jewish a cappella group called The Maccabeats, who have put out some incredible videos on YouTube, including a spoof of “Dynamite” called “Candlelight” that went viral and has over 7 million views. They also spoofed “Raise Your Glass” making it all about the Jewish holiday of Purim, and it’s a really neat way for our boys to learn about music, history, and also the power of YouTube!  READ FULL STORY
