Which documentaries you watch

I recently watched the three episode documentary Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates on netflix. It was very inspiring and a great one.


I like to watch weather documentaries especially when it comes to theories e.g. what would happen if the earth would stop rotating etc.. I am also interested in documentaries about other people's situations.

When I was a kid i loved watching the Storm Chasers on the Discovery Channel, i really have devoured the documentary series 😄
Documentaries exist on all subjects. Which ones are fun for you.
Documentaries about history, constructions, lands or animals are those I mostly watch but I try to not limit myself to that.

Not-freebsd related
There's gotta be a reddit place for asking questions like this.

This is what is written just below the Off Topic title:
Have some non-FreeBSD related questions, or want just to chit-chat about anything that is not related to FreeBSD? This is the forum for you. Note: this is NOT a forum for technical questions about non-FreeBSD operating systems!
May be Lamia wanted to say that he likes to watch documentaries not FreeBSD-related :)
Sometimes it's nice to read or talk about something not-computer related without going on another site and still having a conversation with the same people you usually talk to.
Beside The Walking Dead, these are the last 6 ones:

I. Woodstock (1970),
II. Syd Barrett: Crazy Diamond (2001)
III. Deicide: Behind the Scars (2006)
IV. Until the Light Takes Us (2008)
V. Karajan: Or Beauty as I See It (2008)
VI. Lemmy (2010)

PBS is great. Anton Petrov also.
Abba&Preach. ;) they creak me up.
Then there is Kurzgesagt. And a lot more.
Ancient Aliens... 😊
You can call this barely a documentary... I mean, I watched some on Netflix too, but aside showing some pictures and the usual suspects making some vaguely comments about that aliens might have had a hand in it there's no meat to their ideas.

Even the original documentaries of Erich von Däniken had more meat to it than that.

@OT: Fun means for me interesting and learning something new on a topic.

So this one for me "The new world of Xi Jinping", which describes China's new take on global power since Jinping became its leader.

Emergence and Complexity
As for other physics or maths documentaries, I have tended to prefer books. Perhaps I am not so bright so a book gives me my own time to ponder upon things
It means you're paying attention and want to understand how things work and how they all fit together and aren't glossing over what's being said.

I do try. Though before I give myself too much credit, some things I still just have to begrudgingly move on from because my brain is finite and I have already spent too many hours just on one paragraph haha.
