This List is more strategic than subjective.
  1. Any Ken Burns PBS Series.
    Ken Burns is TV's premier history professor. Whenever I'd like a nostalgic walk-through of modern people, to feel connected to my species, any one his docu-series' can kill a couple days of torturous solitude. Plus, history has the best characters.
  2. Neil Degrasse Tyson's "Cosmos"
    History, check. Science, check.
  3. Chappelle's Show
    It comes down to two of my favorite episodics. I will cherish memories of Buscemi's Boardwalk, but I will not desert Chappelle's Show.
