    My favorite documentary was one called "Understanding Magnetism." It was part of a series of documentaries called "Understanding <blank>" From what I've been able to gather, it was narrated by Jane Curtin, and apparently was produced by the Discovery Channel.

    This page was the only record of it's existence I found on the Internet:

    I think Ken Burns's Civil War series was my favorite to date.

    I liked the Michael Moore documentary about Minnesota's very own London Bridge, in which the outcome is somehow the sole fault of the Bush Administration...

    Okay, seriously, I liked Special Effects: Anything Can Happen and From Star Wars to Star Wars: The Story of Industrial Light & Magic.

    My favorite documentary is Hoop Dreams. It follows two inner-city boys as they try to make it into the NBA. I don't even like basketball, but it was a great portrait of inner-city life. Plus, there are a few surprises that would seem scripted but are not. Two toes way up.

    I fucking love Planet Earth. I could sit there and watch it all day long, especially in HD.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Particularly, for me, the african cichlids (malawi mbuna and the like) in their natural habitat in Lake Malawi. As I keep the same thing - have a large Mbuna tank, I got such a kick out of learning why they dig the sand holes (to avoid the electric killer eels) and the like.

    Great series

    I see Hoop Dreams was already mentioned. A complete travesty it was not even nominated for the Best Documentary Academy Award.

    I wanted to fly to Chicago and punch that coach if he mentioned Isiah Thomas one more fucking time.

    I LOVED Hoop Dreams. And Isiah Thomas is a punk.
