WALL to fucking WALL manipulative bombast underscore in their latest "In Their Own Words" series.

Independent non-profit, my ass.

American docu TV can now officially go fuck itself for good (while the BBC is out showering people with golden-age effort).

Frontline and American Experience are the only two PBS shows that still adhere to decent standards. I have a hard time watching anything else on that channel (and I actually co-produce a show that airs on PBS, so that's saying something...)

The last NOVA show I watched seemed normal PBS so long as you skip the opening blabs and ending blabs.

A lot of NOVA episodes are just re-edited BBC documentaries, but - yeah, that's a good one as well.

Yeah, it's really why I don't watch it much any more.

The PBS I grew up with is mostly gone.

:(

On the other hand, there is about a billion other channels on - including streaming channels where I can watch people play video games.

:thumbs:
