    Watched the first half of the Marley documentary last night (it's two and a half hours long). Good show.

    Watched the Andre the Giant documentary last night. Even when trying to be soft and sincere, Vince McMahon Jnr comes across like a complete cnut.

    Finished it last night. Very drawn out, easily could of being half the time
    Overall it was grand, id say 6/10

    Next series (if there is one), they need more panning shots and show the auld pair shuffling around more...

    Manhunt: Unambomer is a good watch on Netflix. It's a dramatization of the events though so not strictly a documentary.

    The Staircase
    Free Solo
    Man on Wire
    Three Identical Strangers

    Are all worth a watch.

    Also Wild, Wild Country on Netflix is great.

    And The Defiant Ones for anyone into hip hop.

    Watched the HBO doc Robin Williams; Come Inside My Mind last night. Quite poignant and touching. Seemed like a guy whose mind was always working overtime and when he wasn't making people laugh he didn't seem to have a huge sense of self-worth. Sad. He made some terrible movies and I for one was guilty of writing him off as mawkish (probably a view which may have contributed to this death as the bad reviews again seemed to make him question his value as a person rather than as an actor), but when you see clips of Dead Poet's Society, Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam, One Hour Photo, Aladdin, Awakenings, The Fisher King, Mrs. Doubtfire... the quality of those make up for every Patch Adams, Hook and Toys.

    The couple of minutes out-takes from Mork and Mindy and his speech when he lost the critics choice award to a tie for Nicholson and Day Lewis make it worth the watch on its own. He was making all sorts of foul-mouthed sexualised jokes in front of a live audience for a mainstream tv sitcom. I'm surprised he got away with it in America. :D

    RIP Robin.

    I see another one of these football documentaries is due on Amazon this month. Following Leeds over last season with Russell Crowe as narrator.
