I think it depends on why you're wanting to avoid the exposure. For us, it was about things like controlling content, and ensuring it wasn't replacing human interaction, etc.
So watching the video again later in the day on occasion wasn't a big deal, as long as I was there and interacting with her the whole time. I was comfortable with the content, and she and I were actively interacting throughout it.
But if it's simply you're wanting to limit the actual time the TV is on in front of him, then what if you just showed the review? I know that's an option on the regular ST videos -- just to have a sign review. Or just the songs, etc. We didn't watch the BST as much so I don't remember if it had those options in the special features.
It's up to you. There's nothing wrong with you telling him it's a once a day type thing, but it wasn't a big deal for us. Though we still do no TV of any kind after a certain time, because it winds her up too much and is harder for her to get to sleep at night. Some LOs aren't as affected, but ours is, so that's the main reason we say no to a second viewing these days. It just depends on how long after lunchtime, really.
