Sometimes our friends call us TV snobs, sometimes we like to trade in our friends. Kidding, very much kidding but in all honesty – Chris and I are some picky TV and movie watchers (if being a TV snob is so wrong, I don’t want to be right). We nixed cable 3 years ago, and have been living off the internet and Netflix ever since. Which has worked out perfectly for us and we don’t really miss cable at all. We watch only those shows and movies we really love and leave the other TV time for other things that waste our time and eat our brains, like the internet. 9 times out of 10, if we don’t have an episode of a favorite show to watch – we are shacked up on the couch watching a doc. We are obsessed with documentaries, netflix makes this obsession really easy as they always have a pretty great selection. I thought I would share some of our all time favorites. These are the documentaries that are so good; we have seen them a few times, they really made us think (and read more about the topics afterwards), changed how we perceive things, made us (ok, just me) cry, or left us with our jaws on the floor.
I had a very hard time narrowing this list down to 12, so will probably be doing another post (or two) in the future. So tell me, do you have a favorite documentary? We are always looking for a great one to watch, and recommendations are the best way to find a great one!
