    Call me a nerd or a geek,

    I don't care. I enjoy learning new things. Documentaries are one way to do it.

    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.

    I like documentaries about social issues.

    I also like documentaries that follow people's lives over a period of time, as well as undercover reporting and social experiments. Any suggestions?

    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'

    best docu ever: inside north Korea (national

    geographic). it's only an hour long but it definitely got me hooked on the topic. 4 well-earned stars for risking their lives to make it.

    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...

    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.

    I always loved documentaries.

    Of course they are more interesting then non realistic movies. It is interesting watching stories that happened to real people. The stories sort of teach you a lesson in life. Some are tragic though like the murder documentaries.

    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'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.
