    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...

    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.

    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...

    the documentary about Gobekli tepe by national

    I've only started watching a month ago.

    It's rather more entertaining than watching the few channels available on our television. It has given me a broader picture of the world, expanding the knowledge I have beyond the limits of only that which I see in my the daily life.
