Docu-series

Its name, docu-series, is pretty self-explanatory. It is a documentary television series, which present the theme over several episodes rather than a single movie. For me personally, I find it easier to follow a shorter documentary, in 45 minutes or so, than watch a movie, even if overall the run of the docu-series is longer. Sure, I could pause the movie, but then I find that I lose the thread or completely forget about it.

Right now, I am watching docu-series called Losers on Netflix, which talks about sporting “losers”, who made either international headline for their mistakes that made an impact beyond that single score or who were pitted against a community that rejected them in some way. It is very interesting to see the events from their perspective and what drove them to “failure”.

I also have some other docu-series lined up, like The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, Explained, Making a Murderer and something more light-hearted, like South Pacific and Dogs.

What docu-series did you watch or are plan on watching? Do you love documentaries in general or was it just that one or two that got your attention?
