    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...

    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.

    Thinking still sometimes on this one

    documentary. It's called " To See If I'm Smiling ". It is about war in context and in this case, women who are in the army . Although it takes place in Israel , it's not about the conflict between Palestine and Israel .

    I mostly browse through Netflix

    for some interesting documentaries but I've found that out of all the documentaries I've watched I really love all the ones that Michael Moore makes ! Check them out, my favorite would be bowling for columbine. Pardon any misspelling, I'm not the best speller!

    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.

    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.

    It's really the only reason I keep Netflix

    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.

    ¨American Experience Mormons¨ PBS.

    America's fastest growing religion? Well, only in America, and wow. Really interesting look at sociology of early Americans and Government policy and influence on a religious group outside the mainstream.

    The nature program on PBS has the most amazing

    My favorite is called Hungry

    for Change. I watched it about 5 times, and could easily go for 5 more. It's about the realities of dieting, "food-like products," and how to take steps toward a change for the better. I'd like to know if anyone else has seen it, and what your thoughts on it are.

    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.

    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...

    There is a documentary about Nazi prisoners in

    England. I think it is called "The M room". It is light and entertaining and as always with the Nazis creepy, because Nazis are naturally evil. If you can find it please provide a link.
