    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.
