    If anybody is not watching this, I suggest that you get on board. Might be some of the finest documentary television ever.

    I watched a 3-minute preview after The Newshour the other night.

    I'm DVR-ing and really looking forward to it.

    Stumbled across this a few times over the last few days and each time, I came to a stop.
    I don't know how the filmmakers did it, but it was some of the most compelling documentary stuff I've seen since Hoop Dreams. I thought it was going to be a Navy-sponsored puff piece, but it wasn't. Nor was it a diatribe against the military. The little traditions, the bonds the sailors and pilots shared, the sacrifices of the families, the melancholy of being "at war" but not feeling like it really came through It made me proud to be defended by these people and I'm glad they all got home safely. We don't do enough for these folks.
