Ken Burns: The War

Television

Dexter 8x12, 8x13
New Girl 3x01, 3x02
The Newsroom 2x08, 2x09

APPENDIX:
1: I don't feel like this adequately captures just HOW MANY TIMES I reread QOA/KOA last month. It was a lot of times. A LOT.
2: The War was a really incredible documentary. It's Ken Burns, so it's a miniseries that is like 14 hours total (there's a reason it is the majority of what I watched in September), but that time is not wasted AT ALL. It's a bottom up series of stories about the war, focusing on four towns in the US and how people in those towns experienced the war, but it gets into so much more that most histories do, like what it meant for Mobile, Alabama to become a huge factory town with a ton of migrant workers, many of whom were black and coming into the segregation South for "better work" and how that affected the idea of double victory, and what it meant for Asian-American soldiers to enlist. There is a lot of graphic imagery, not surprisingly, particularly "The Ghost Front", which details among other things US soldiers discovering concentration camps.

Well, I didn't quite get to 50 books this year - I'm in the middle of two, but finished neither. Still, 48! That's more than any year I can remember before I started college, I think. I don't remember if I tried to do the same with movies last year, but I'm going to this year. And tv...yikes. I watch a lot of tv and I don't actually like a good chunk of that. Maybe this year I will only watch tv I care about. I'd like to feel like I waste less time this year.
