    It was a little bit tedious at times, but very informative. It's definitely a docu junkies dream fix.

    You might try the baseball one. It's not just for Baseball fans. I mean, yes there's tons of baseball in it as you'd expect. But there's also a lot of social commentary too.
    I'll give it a try. I promise.

It's fascinating especially because of the stories of women jumping from the building in the garment district fire which was such a prelude to 9/11.
    Well, there we go. Now I have one to add to my list. I've gotta hunt down that New York City one.

    I mean, yes there's a lot about baseball. I don't want to act like they're isn't. But you know his stuff. There's always so much about the people, the times, the setting, relationships, interactions, outside influences, and more. I think a dream job would be working on his staff.

    I actually watched a little of one episode, it was about how we got started in there and at first supported whatshisface (I'm drinking don't ask me to Google right now) Cho En Lai? I forget. Anyway I recorded all the episodes and never watched them, then last week we switched to DirectTV. $50 a month for a bunch of stuff and I finally found out how to use the Smart TV we've had for a couple years, and I subscribed to NF.

    Direct TV is okay so far except I hate learning new technology, and I'm not liking the remote a whole lot. It's different from the cable one.

    I love you bunny. I believe Cho En Lai became Ho Chi Min. And yes, we did originally support him. We also had difficulty entering the VietNam war because we were fighting for colonization of a country when we, the USA, were colonized and fought against it.
