Catched most of it. Informative, yes. Dramatic, yes. What do you expect? The media seems to be more dramatic than usual lately.

Leni Riefenstahl comes to mind. Just in case you didn't know what to think.

Sure it was dramatic, but I thought it was great. Helped me understand the depth of "The evil Bin Laden" issue. I was ignorant of much of history's details (especially regarding Afganistan and its role in the end of the cold war.) The interviews with Islamic scholars were also mind-opening.

I didn't watch it. Did it really need to be on all 8 discovery channels at the same time? My son (4) has been disappointed because Junkyard Wars hasn't been on in two weeks.

At first I was like "Hey, they said no commercials!" Then I realized they were ads for the Red Cross...

Oh, one other thing. Upon hearing how Bin Laden's network was organized, did anyone other than me think of Gnutella or Freenet?
