    Really a great 2 parter presented in back to back segments in real widescreen HD.

    Makes you sort of realize the South sort of really won in the end....

    Any thoughts or comments?


    I know I sure learned a ton of stuff, that surely was never covered when I was in school, thats for sure.

    Define "dorky."

    I find most PBS documentaries too dry for my tastes, and prefer documentaries on A&E, Discovery, or History. Just my personal opinion. They may not be as complex or complete, but they are good for their brevity.

    Well this one, was surely packed with info. But alas, it was dry enough to remove moisture from the tv like a Silica Package in dried foods packaging. lol


    By Dorky, maybe I mean just not so hip? With it? Cool?

    I dunno what they even call it these days...

    Fly? Jiggy?
