from your list, i've only watched supersize me... it's entertaining but i've read an article that some swedish researchers decided to copy his experiment and none of the health complications he had experienced happened to all of the study's subjects. :o

 

btw, this is my all-time favourite documentary... it's about the people commiting suicides at the golden bridge.  :(  it's very eye-opening to me and it really gave me a whole new outlook on life.

That's pretty interesting. I wonder if they use gmos in Sweden and that's the difference.

As far as favorite documentaries?

In North Korea

Blackfish was good, I thought.  But Pressure Cooker is still my favorite documentary.  It's about a culinary arts program in a school in the poor neighborhoods of Philly

I really enjoy Human Planet. Its an 8 part series showing people from all over the world doing remarkable things. Really makes you see how spectacular people can be.

The BBC has the greatest Natural History department of any country. Ever.
I am not a terribly patriotic person, and I don't find a lot to be proud of in my country, but I'll be damned if I don't love our nature videography.

This is a great documentary. My old politics teacher is actually in it because she was one of the CIA analysts in a group called "The Sisterhood" that helped find Osama Bin Laden.

The documentary that entertained me for a period of time is The men who built America. Next is Pawn Stars.

I can't find the thread I was looking for, so here I am!

 

I discovered The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia (2010) in an article and I want to watch it more than life. I'm tempted to send the kids for a nap right now just so I can see it.
