I Watch Documentaries

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 89,153 People

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Farm series... The Victorian,

    Edwardian, Wartime (WWII) and Tudor monastery farm... I will never be a farmer, but... Hell, maybe that is the reason I love these so much, it seems so remote I actually get to remember everything because it isn't the compulsory bulls... study I am used to. Check it out, at...

    Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey (2014) Not my first

    encounter with a show popularizing (astro)physics, but certainly the best one I know of. It might seem boring for those who already know a bit about the universe and its laws, still... just "The Calendar" is a phenomenon making this show worth watching. I haven't watched the...

    best docu ever: inside north Korea (national

    In water, clusters of molecules store the history of its relationship with the world. "Water has memory". Under a microscope, the water from natural springs or pools shows the most symmetry and beauty, assimilating the biological features from its environment and structuring...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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'

    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 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.

    I forget the name, but it's about Jim Jones
