Sketches of Frank Gehry is airing on the next American Masters. My sister ordered it from Netflix awhile back and I must say it is marvelous---in a "twisted" Gehry sort of way. I think he truly is a genius, but some of his work is a bit eccentric and gaudy. What really tops the cake is he's making watches/jewelery for the Fossil company. <3

Does any one know anything about a new season of Austin City Limits? According to the website, episodes from last season will be airing for a while.

Anybody catch POV:Working Wages tonight? Fabulous presentation of the issue of full time workers living in poverty. I never understood how complicated it is to be a full time worker living in poverty. I know I always had youth and inexperience as an excuse for making next to nothing, but even then it was stressful. But to try to raise a family on minimum wage? I can't beleive that people are expected to try to make it!
This show is one of my favorites for the compelling topics they cover.

Subject:Atwood on faith & reason
Security:Public

anyone else see Bill Moyers on Faith & Reason? it aired tonight on PBS.
this particular program featured authors discussing just that, faith and reason. it was fascinating if you ask me. the authors i saw were Margaret Atwood and Martin Amis. i didnt even know it was Atwood until the text on the bottom of the screen came up. my one gripe with Atwood's segment is that she totally gave away the whole plot of Yann Martel's Life of Pi [although now i am interested in reading it].

Security:Public

Did anyone else watch the Independent Lens documentary "A Lion In The House"? Wow, I felt so much remorse for those kids and their families. After watching that, it made any pain I was feeling from having my wisdom teeth taken out feel like a walk in the park.

This was the first Independent Lens movie I'd seen. How long have they been showing on PBS?

Subject:Texas Ranch House
Security:Public

Anyone besides me been watching this week? Tonight was the review of their overall performance, and whether or not the "experts" felt the ranch would become viable, based on how the participants had done over the past three months or so. Overall, they didn't do so well - much like what happened on Frontier House, you may recall.

I'd love to exchange thoughts about the review results, and whether or not anyone else agreed or disagreed with them. Personally, I felt they were pretty accurate, embarassing as that may be for the Cooke family.

I don't think most of us can fully appreciate the enormous amount of back-breaking hard work that sort of life entailed. I was particularly interested in this series because some of my own ancestors arrived in Texas hill country in the late 1800s. My family still has cattle today in Oklahoma.

I am crazy about Andreas Viestad. I fully admit I adore everything about him. He is so cute I could just squish him! Of course what he cooks I'd also love to eat.

Subject:Helmut Lotti
Security:Public
Mood: tired

I was watching my local PBS station a few weeks ago during pledge week (month?), and I caught the middle of a Helmut Lotti show. He was in Russia, singing traditional folk songs, first in the original language, then in English. I was kinda struck at how much he sounds like a young Elvis or Roy Orbison, but after doing some info searches about him on the web, it seems like that vocal style is quite intentional on his part. And here I was thinking the only new music that came out of Belgium these days was techno!

I'm so happy to have found this community. I thought I was the only one suffering from PBS fever.
Often I find myself unable to go to bed on time, do my daily chores, lead a social life because of public television. As soon as one show is over, another begins...and the cycle never ends. *sniff*
Tonight it was American Masters about my one true love Cary Grant. Afterwards Scientific Frontiers with the beautiful (!!) Alan Alda about the development of robots. And now The Robot Race on Nova....what has public television come to? Is it meant to steal from me every sleeping hour by igniting my imagination? ^_^
Just a hi from a new member.
Glad you all are here to commiserate with me!!

Hello PBS community, I know it's cliche to do this, but my name is Patrick and this is my first time to post.

I just wanted to know if there was anybody else out there that is obsessed with This Old House as much as I am... and to ask if it's unhealthy for such a weird fandom? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ROGER COOK!

And oh yeah, thank god they're showing the original Office. Rick Gervais is a genius.

Yesterday I watched the PBS special Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism. I was curious to see what anyone else's thoughts were on this program. I thought it was generally good, but I was upset at how the response to why socialism never caught on in the US was rather equivocal.

Did anybody else catch <a href="http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/countryboys/>"Country Boys"</a> this past week? I thought it was quite fantastic.

(If you head over to the Frontline website you can actually watch the whole thing online currently)

Hey everyone! This is my first post in this community. I've been a long time lover of the PBS shows: Burt Wolf Travels, Masterpiece Theatre, and SPY. Last night I saw Coldplay's Austin City Limits concert. Did anyone else here watch it?
