21. I thought "How the States Got Their Shapes" would be really interesting. I set my DVR to record the

series. There were five episodes ready for me when I finally got a chance to watch. Less then five minutes into the show I knew I'd be deleting all of them without even finishing the first one.

I really don't need to see people, most of whom are not intelligent, funny, charming, or entertaining in any way, guessing what might be true about history. The whole side-show tone of the program just did not appeal to me. I like Ken Burns docs, but I can also enjoy other approaches. But I don't care for stupid.

Too bad. It could have been a great series.
