I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t watch network television anymore. T.V. seems to be getting more and more devoid of anything resembling an original idea. A great majority of things I find on network T.V. just aren’t mentally stimulating in my opinion. Ever since the rise of “reality television” network programming has seen a rather sharp decline in what I might describe as watchable programming. You could say that television has become quite jejune.
With all of that said, I’ll admit that I am not one of the ever increasing people to not own a television and no I’m not getting rid of mine. Not as long as there are alternatives such as Netflix, Hulu, AppleTV, Crackle and Amazon Prime. I recently looked at my Netflix instant Que and realized that i’m very much drawn to documentaries. About 70 – 80 percent of my Que is comprised of various flavors of said documentaries. I can’t get enough of ’em.
That brings me to this week’s “Site of the week,” documentarystorm.com. This site may not be a new kid on the block, but I just found out about it so it’s new to me. I am in hog heaven!
I do tend to lean toward the lessor known subjects that maybe Netflix or some of the others may shy away from. The first film that I had the pleasure of watching was “Thai Boxing: A fighting chance.” I loved it! It was well produced and narrated by Jason Statham. Check it out.
One of the cool things about this site is that it’s just there to serve. You don’t need to sign up, sign in or give your first born to be a member. It’s just there out of the goodness of it’s heart to serve as a haven of knowledge from the cesspool that the majority of today’s shows have become. Too Much? Maybe, but I can’t imagine what kind of leaders of tomorrow we’re going to come up with from show’s like “Here comes Honey boo boo, “Jersey shore” or “The real housewives from anywhere.”
That’s it, that’s my rant for the week at least my first one. Thanks for your time if you like this post please use the link on the right side of the page to like us on Facebook.
