Just Saying: Ken Burns Rocks

Over the past few days, as I work, I've been watching Ken Burns; "Civil War" again. It's still so much better than almost every other documentary, certainly better than the hackneyed tripe that appears so often on The History Channel! Whether you are interested in the American Civil War or not, you owe yourself a look at this if you haven't seen it. If for no other reason, to see how well it can be done.

Boy, would I love to see Burns take a stab at the Viking Age. I loved Magnus Magnusson's "Vikings" (why isn't it available on DVD?), but I think Burns could knock dear old Magnus out of the water!
