For what it's worth, I would just like to mention that Ken Burns documentary on the parks was one of the best.

It is spectacular, to say the least. I'm sure re-broadcasts on PBS will occur for awhile.
Must see TV.

I'm glad I recorded them all, cause I have to admit I kept falling asleep on them in real-time. I'm generally a big Burns fan. I loved his film on the Shakers. The Civil War was a wonderful series. I even liked Baseball (and I'm definitely NOT a sports fan).

I've been to a great many of the National Parks. It is the type of vacation that I enjoy most. Our Utah vacation ranks high up there among the trips we've taken. But I found the National Park series to be ponderous. The tone never varied. The photography was awesome, but I think it was not his best work. Probably blasphemous to voice this view, but that's how I felt.

Have them recorded. Haven't seen one yet. Looking forward to it. We now have an HD TV; too fantastic.

Would love to see it. I retired in 2001, but these post-retirement jobs are what allow me to save enough to travel. When I re-retire, we plan to expand outward even more.

By coincidence the series on Chaco Canyon was aired the night before Sun and I visited there, and the same with our Grand Canyon trip this past week. It was cool to watch the programs and then see the places in person.

"America's Best Idea"...I agree with the theme. It certainly enhanced our visit...which was fantastic. I am going to watch them all in preparation of seeing them all!

Yes it was. I 'll be glad when PBS repeats it.
