Recommended Posts

Ken burns puts together some solid documentaries. I have watched most of them.

 I am currently watching his Vietnam war documentary.

I've seen Baseball all the way through.  And, a good portion of Civil War.  Not seen any of his others.

Baseball and Civil War stand out to me...but I enjoyed Prohibition as well.

After a week having let's just say holiday fun I'll be looking to dry out this week. Just reserved Central Park Five and Prohibition from the library. Will give them a watch this week.

Anyone know of a good one on Netflix?

I’ve seen the one on national parks and really enjoyed it.

WWII in Color on Netflix is VERY good.

I love all the Ken Burns documentaries, Civil War is my favorite. 

Not Burns but the 12 part mini series America: The Story of Us is top notch.

Like others, Baseball and The Civil War. Interested in some of the others mentioned, but between, work, family, and farmette, it's difficult to find the time...

Second that.  On par with any of Ken Burns' documentaries.

Ken Burns does a tremendous job of bringing history to life. I have the dvd of Civil War and Baseball and have watched them both many many times. His Statue of Liberty doc is also very good.

I love history. People who are indifferent or not curious about history.... I don't much like those folks very much.

Another of my favorites is the HBO 7-part John Adams series. Very good.

Those that don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Napoleon and Hitler vs Russia, as an example.
