    The new one about Creedence Clearwater is automatically cool since Jeff Bridges narrates it and the one about photographer Jim Marshall is pretty good as well

    Awesome images but I think they should have explained the multi billions overrun in more detail. It was almost handled as a joke. They focused on just the (considerable) accomplishment, but someone at NASA was either lying or had no idea how to do basic math. Typical PBS

    "Automat" - The rise and fall of the once mighty and visionary restaurant chain. I only ate in one once, but it was enough to convince me: everything they said about the food is true. In fact, I made Creamed Spinach and Beef Burgandy from their recipes - delicious.

    Probably too much Mel Brooks, Colin Powell was a surprisingly congenial persona, the other celebrity interviewees not nearly as interesting as the automat employees. Probably 10 minutes too long even at 80 min but worth seeing.

    You'd think given the labor shortage they'd return. It seemed like a good idea well executed and could be again.

    Watched two episodes of Island of the Sea Wolves on Netflix last night. Amazing footage of the wildlife on Vancouver Island. I have to watch more documentaries like this than mindless TV shows.

  9. Punk in Africa, on Kanopy. A bit disappointing in that, despite the scope of the title, about 3/4 of the 80 minute running time covers South Africa (Mozambique and Zimbabwe being the other country getting look-ins) so no real revelations, and about a third of the music covered is - ulp - ska. Still, it’s a rough and ready production that’s worth checking out if you’re interested in the role of punk in the fight against apartheid.

    This was a very interesting documentary on two very large personalities of the 20th century, one of whom had a huge impact on North American society. You get to decide which one.

    Laurel Canyon: A Time & Place - No narrator, the story told by those that were there. The only people that grew old apparently were the photographers, every one else is forever young.
    It's about a specific time after all. Enjoyed it a lot.

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon documentary (not the 'Classic Albums' program). On Amazon Prime. Interviews from the 1990s of band members along with a longer interview with Clare Torry, the female vocalist on Great Gig In The Sky. Some of the songs are performed by a group of classical musicians, but many of the Pink Floyd actual music clips are outtakes and live versions. Interesting show, if not a small bit padded.
