Two entertaining documentaries:

Meet the Romans (BBC, 2012)



Presented by Mary Beard. It's an immersion intended to know the ordinary citizens of the Roman Empire. A tour through a 1,000,000 people city of the ancient world.

According Wikipedia Beard "is Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge, a fellow of Newnham College, and Royal Academy of Arts Professor of ancient literature. She is the Classics editor of The Times Literary Supplement, where she also writes a regular blog, "A Don's Life". Her frequent media appearances and sometimes controversial public statements have led to her being described as 'Britain's best-known classicist'".

It's also available via YouTube.

And this one on Netflix:

Hitler's Bodyguard (UK, 2010)



A detailed account of Hitler's different bodyguard corps, and the dozens of failed attacks against him.


Llegaron los sarracenos
y nos molieron a palos,
que Dios ayuda a los malos
cuando son más que los buenos.
-- Spanish quatrain (anonym)

Susan & I are rewatching The Closer - will be starting the 7th and last season over the next few days.

For me, I'm rewatching Game of Thrones - just started season 2, and have watched through season 5 previously, so will continue w/ the newer one - looks like the series will end w/ season 8 (Wiki quote below).  Dave :)

A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.
