An enjoyable mixed bag!
10 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Not being the biggest fan of documentary films, I really didn't have any expectations when I grudgingly decided to watch this series that kept popping up on my Amazon prime account. I can now honestly say that I owe Amazon a solid for pushing this series as I was completely blown away by how much I enjoyed it. Each 30min episode consists of a mixed bag of videos on no set topic (although there is a food themed one), all beautifully shot and produced. The diverse range of 10-15min documentaries pack so much into such little time, the short films with their wry sense of humor and unexpected heart are very enjoyable, the time lapse cartoon videos, and even the short vignettes showcasing the hidden little nooks and crannies of New York, there isn't a single part of an episode that isn't beautifully done. I don't know what the people who rated this low here were watching, but it couldn't have been this series. I hope Amazon keeps this going for a long time.
