    A mugshot of James "Whitey" Bulger taken

    after his arrest in 2011I think the world is an endlessly fascinating place and I never fail to learn something new about it from a well-made documentary that isn’t interesting and worth knowing. A new documentary that illustrates this (and one that I strongly...

    The nonsensical jibbering

    and whining of "unreality" TV has subsided now that everyone is asleep. The television, which I rarely watch and ever control, is mine for at least an hour. I search for a documentary on cable or better yet, I flick on Apple TV and search online. Whether it's a historical...

    I can't stop watching them.

    Sometimes I've seen a documentary so many times so I just keep it on as background 'music'. Murder and serial killer documentaries are my favourite, but I also enjoy nature or religion documentaries where they debate different theories and stuff like that.

    Ken Burns Is A Story Teller Like No Other.

    I love Ken Burns documentaries. I can get droopy eyed at some directors, even though the topic is interesting. But Mr. Burns always gives just enough information and then moves on. Kind of like a girls skirt... should be just long enough to cover the subject. Anything more gets...

    Just saw "Blackfish" on Netflix today.

    Excellent, but very heartbreaking documentary about Orcas in captivity at Sea World. Focusing on why they have been attacking trainers, with some of the attacks resulting in their deaths. Highly recommended.

    They're my favorite thing to watch.

    Way better than reality because it's actually real and not scripted. I think HBO has some of thebest and I watch some on YouTube. I enjoy a large variety of genres. I love the so much because they take me too a different place.

    Absent

    I have recently watched a documentary on Netflix called Absent. It is about the affect of absent fathers on children and adults. This film will absolutely break you heart, however, I think it is a must see for every to better understand the human heart and those around us.

    The Real World

    I'm a firm believer in "The truth is stranger than fiction". I do enjoy a well made movie, but prefer non fiction factual documentaries. History, archaeology, and anthropology simply fascinate me.

    Doctor Who started as a semi-serious history
