National Geographic "Explorer"

  1. What a small world I live in...I watch this every week and Im AMAZED at things...people, crimes, etc... Im in SHOCK right now! Its about the Aryan Brotherhood...Im just speechless.
     
  2. I saw the preview a couple times today but was actually afraid to watch it. So what did you think?
     
  3. I saw previews and wanted to watch it, but missed it. There's always re-runs.
     
  4. Vlad and I both really wanted to watch this.. was it really good Sunshine? And by good, I merely mean well done?

    I'll have to see when it is playing again :yes:
     
  5. All the shows I watch on that channel are good...but for me SCARY...hard core reality. Just not the reality I live in. Im so drawn to watching these kinds of shows for some reason!! Scary but fascinating.
     
  6. Love, love, love National Geographic Explorer. Lisa Ling is so great. Glad to see her off The View - she is way too talented for that show.

    Did you watch last night's special about North Korea? Unbelievable. I am speechless. It is unreal to think of the conditions those people live in.

    Here's a map of Korea. The dichotmomy is striking, is it not? There's the south, the same people as the north, the same resources north and south, and the big difference is in the south it's a free political system and a free economic system.

    The people in the north are starving, their growth is stunted. It's a shame, a tragedy.

    Light vs. Dark. Good vs. Evil. Life vs. Death.
    Which would you choose?

     
  8. I saw part of this last night, and I just couldn't believe how these people worship, or are forced to worship, their leader/king.
     
  9. I think I may have mentioned this on another thread, but there is a documentary about North Korea done by the BBC a few years ago, Netflix has it, the perspective, etc is a bit different from any of the US-produced programs, so those with an interest in North Korea who are outside or not from the US especially might enjoy seeing it. And certainly there are many Americans who might enjoy seeing it, too, I just add that caution because of the sensitive subject matter, that difference in perspective might be disturbing for some American viewers...
     
  10. I JUST watched the N. Korea show....WOW....another eye opener....for someone that has traveled alot...I feel ignorant.
     
  11. I watched it yesterday at the gym...it was veryyy interesting! had no idea it was even like that
     
  12. Everytime I watch that show I feel a little more sheltered...I always loved to travel as I love different cultures and ideas...well...there is so much Im not aware of...and sometimes Im glad I do not know.
     
  13. I want to watch this!
