    Some Documentaries May Have Become "lietoyoumentaries"

    If you get all your facts from documentaries, you will be sorely lacking in truth. There are so many falsehoods you would think they have nothing to lose but the truth. For instance, do you ever question something you saw in a documentary, then go check the stated facts as given...

    Historical documentaries are interesting.

    Here in England they have been examining lots about the Great War, of 1914 1918, and recently about the Plantagenet kings they had here in the Middle Ages.

    When I watch TV it is usually to view a story

    about animals, or gardens, or something from our historical culture. I seldom watch anything else, as it is too repetitive.

    The Cowspiracy... What can I say?

    It must be the most convincing vegan propaganda ever. Yet it makes me wonder about the facts stated there. If you have time and option to see it I'd say do it, because it is undoubtedly worth the time.

    I mostly watch them about animals,

    in one of them I learned about this guy who brought a few wolves into a huge area and examined how they became a pack and how they chose who was to take what role in the pack. It was very interesting.

    Documentaries can be very educational about

    such a wide range of subjects from politics to space science. A few just set out to make you go 'wow', but the best ones challenge and take you into new thinking. We have had a several brilliant series by Prof Brian Cox on various science topics and he has broadened my...

    Documentaries are so much more interesting

    than fictional movies. I don't know why, but I tend to get bored about 20 minutes into watching a tv show or a movie, but documentaries educate you, so that's more of a hook than a fictional plot line. Also you have the excuse to be sedentary without people yelling at you to do...

    I love watching documentaries.

    Watching real life stories is so exciting to me. I don't like fake movies cause documentaries are so interesting. You can actually view a persons whole life in two or three hours. I get creeped out by the ones about murderers. Documentaries are great entertainment.

    i love history documentaries.

    sometimes, though, i am disappointed. because i see one on a favorite topic, and i get excited to watch it, and it turns out that i already knew everything that's in it. so i have to go back to reading books.

    So I just finished watching the documentary

    special 'making couples happy' & I found it truly refreshing to know that intimacy starts at a spiritual level & not a physical level. By engaging with a persons mind before their body is so much more rewarding & we are so much more in life than just our 'flesh'
