    Notably, "queue" is not so much a word as a letter followed by repeating vowels.
    'Queue' would be a decent Scrabble word, but not nearly so good as the chess word 'Zugzwang'! Now THERE'S a Scrabble word!

    Excellent, exceptional.

    I recommend it to everyone. Start at the beginning and watch them all in a row.
    What are you doing watching PBS?

    And in Britain it seems, one doesn't join a line, one joins a queue.

    The documentary I really want to get, NEED to get, is Earth II from BBC. I have the first Earth series on Blu-Ray, and that is some of the most stunning stuff I have ever seen on my TV screen. Only some of the scenes from The Game of Thrones come close. And I've seen several hours worth of Earth II, and it's fabulous stuff, so I want to get that in full 4K, as my TV and DVD player are both capable of that----I have about half a dozen movies on 4K. I think Earth II in 4K on my 75-inch Sony TV will be simply stupendous. Gonna get that later this summer.

    BBC makes the world's best nature documentaries. Is ANYONE going to dispute that?
    Thanks from Hollywood, BitterPill and steezer

    also, I think thatís streaming free on Amazon prime

    I cried 3 times during the 1st episode, once before the opening credits were finished. This is not an easy watch.

    I let my Amazon Prime membership lapse about a year ago, thinking I would not need it in my retirement. Maybe I should reconsider that.
