Do you like PBS?
I do. Yes

WGBX Boston plays uncut, uninterrupted movies on Saturdays.
Tonight they're playing "The Big Sleep" and "The Maltese Falcon". Gotta like some Bogie.

Now I have to prepare some snacks and drinks. Wink

RE: Do you like PBS?
Back in the day when I watched TV PBS was one of my favourites. I mostly watched it for The Flying Circus, Nova, Nature, and British sitcoms. Especially Fawlty Towers!
Nowadays when I turn on the TV (rare as that may be) it's usually TCM or AMC. I don't even bother with HBO anymore..

Frontline and Nova. It doesn't get any better than that.

I can get that same programing on TCM.. like every few months those are bound to come up Drinking Beverage

But I do love PBS, Normal and in Chicago the WTTW Pbs station is especially great for dual great content. My favorite PBS show I watch weekly is a Literary Survey of American literary history in segments every early-early morning on Thursdays I think. It's some fantastic stuff... and I've regularly been watching NOVA since 05.

The local pbs station here isn't too great.
I do watch online at pbs.org.
BTW, if you haven't seen Frontline's 'Secrets of The Vatican', I recommend it.

Thanks for that! Since I never have control of the remote around here much of my TV/movie watching is done via Netflix. I will see what I can find online. Smile

20,000 stations of the same crap isn't better than one PBS, you moron. Angry
