    At night, I imagine my bedroom

    as a planetarium. I have a playlist on documentaries on the subject of the universe. I know, lame, but it makes me happy. I could go as far as sticking glow in the dark stars on my ceiling and getting space posters for the walls, but I won't.

    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'

    I love true crime documentaries.

    I also like history and science documentaries. How it's made is one of my favorite shows.

    I watched this awesome documentary about the

    discovery and exploration of the Marianas Trench, which is in the Pacific Ocean. Seven miles deep. Taking man on some of the most perilous dives ever attempted in history.

    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.

    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.

    My eldest son told me " knowledge " about the

    universe and I asked him a question and he answered "I do not know, I closed the TV, then" I believed that he had learned it in school! But no, it was in a TV documentary.

    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 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.

    best docu ever: inside north Korea (national

    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.

    Hey there, I've always had a slight obsession

    with documentaries, the in depth story telling, interesting characters, nail biting storylines, it's all so captivating. As of late I've been on the hunt for great documentaries, any suggestions?

    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...

    They're a decent substitute

    when you're too busy to spend some serious quality time with a book. Documentaries, to me, are the fast food take away of knowledge.
