Anyway, if anyone is even remotely interested...

I've just completed watching a nine part (9 hour) documentary series about the US Civil War by Ken Burns. It took almost two months - about an hour episode a week.

Damn good, high praise, excellent documentary, superb documentary footage as well as original letters, photos and diaries of participants, highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand the US Civil War in its entirety.

Slowly chugging my way through Star Trek Voyager. Almost at the end. Some of this series was very strong, the last season not so much, imho.

It really is a fantastic documentary.

The one Burns did on baseball was also enjoyable, but its hard to find anything that's as good as The Civil War.

College basketball season has started, so watching UK is a definite priority the few nights a week they play. If anyone gets a chance to watch them, they're fun to watch

Hey, my nieces/nephews are all in their 20's now. That means that I know the whole dialogue of Beauty and the Beast almost by heart. Little nieces could watch that damn video over and over again, hundreds of times.

"If it's Baroque, don't fix it"

That's my favorite Disney movie. I'm really looking forward to the live action version in March.

I don't have a TV and don't buy all that many DVD's. Most of my watching is on Youtube actually. YT is a goldmine for music old and new. Concerts from the 70's and even 60's with surprisingly good quality from good old proper bands, albums which haven't seen the light of day since the 80's and top quality contemporary music which is such a refreshing juxtaposition against the utter pile of garbage which mainstream corporate music has become.

The Ken Burns documentary I posted about above was accessed via Youtube. And I've never had access to any network television. We have a tv, but no cable. It is used only for DVD's or games.

"What are you watching" doesn't have to mean network television.
