Good idea!

On a separate note my father took us to a Harlem Globetrotters game one year in Omaha, great seats also.  Maybe the old man wasn't so bad after all.

All the Globetrotters we used to watch on Wide World of Sports are either extremely old or dead.

Fucking Hannibal, y'all.

(I know the premise and the promotions make it look like ass; and I know it's on a fucking mainstream network; but seriously, you will be blown away by this thing.  I have never seen TV like it.)

It bothers me when people disparage television as a medium, because that's all it is.  It's the content that counts.  Granted 95% of "TV" is crap, but so are 95% of theatrical releases and probably 99% of all pen put to paper.

I've been keeping up with Game of Thrones, The Borgias and the Houses of both Cards and Lies.  I think GOT is probably the best thing on television right now.  It led to me read GRR Martin's 5 books (twice).  As a SciFan reader I can't believe I missed them.  I'm really hoping George lives long enough to write Winds of Winter and the final book.  He fat and old and it took him 7 years to write the fifth one.  WRITE GEORGE, WRITE!

House of Cards is being filmed locally which is the large part of my interest.  I like watching people I know in the background.  I keep hoping I'll catch a certain local featured in a puckerstar scene. 

Deadwood, Rome, Firefly, Mitchell and Webb, Blackadder... there's been a lot of great content on television.

She is quite right, since I've cut the cable I've become a snob about it.  That being said I still think it was one of the smartest things we've done...

Just watched this documentary from across the water. Seems the best only come from there now.
BBC Imagine- McCullin (2013)
Documentary portrait of legendary British war photographer and photojournalist Don McCullin. Told through a series of searingly honest and often graphic interviews, McCullin recounts a life lived in the theatre of war - from his first assignment with the violent teenage gangs on his home turf of Finsbury Park, to capturing international conflicts of the past 50 years. The film lays bare McCullin's disgust for the destruction of human life, juxtaposed with the adrenaline rush of a life spent under enemy fire.

You're welcome. This place- The MV Group lists hundreds of documentaries. You may have to register once but they're safe. May be a hat as I probably found the link on HighStreet or Cruel.

Thanks for the link.  I will check it out sometime.  I am looking for a decent nzb search site since SAB shut down.  Any suggestions?

MVGroup distributed about half the documentaries I've seen over the last 10 years.

Here's a standout worth rewatching. 2003: Watergate Plus 30: Shadow of History

Dunno how I missed this.

BBC: Edwardians in Colour: The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn (2007 )

IMDB Rating: 9.0

on usenet...

edit: One hour of material padded by preening academics ad libbing marketing commentary over ten one-hour episodes.

The fact that he looks exactly like me slightly disturbs me.

I was sick recently so got to watch daytime TV for the first time in a decade or two. I realized things have changed when I was watching "North Woods Cops" (Which is about game wardens, not cops) and they run down a guy for trespassing on his neighbors field with his ATV (exciting!) and when they roll up to his house he has 40 pot plants growing out back. After checking his "Maine Medical Provider" paperwork they wrote him a warning for trespass and went on their way.
