Dear White People/ Season 1

Students of color navigate the daily slights and slippery politics of life at an Ivy League college that's not nearly as "post-racial" as it thinks.

The best thing about Dear White People is that it adopts the loose, varied feel of college life, filled with the highs, lows, fierce arguments, and ephemeral joys that come with it.

Southside with You

The film chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States, Barack Obama, wooed his future First Lady, Michelle Obama, on a first date across Chicago's South Side.

A gentle, rose-tinted piece of political nostalgia-one that glances at the divisions in American society, but still casts a optimistic view toward whatever's next.

Mifune: The Last Samurai

This documentary examines the life and career of Toshirô Mifune, the Japanese star of many Akira Kurosawa films who changed the face of world cinema.

Serves as a fascinating primer on one of the movies' undisputable Icons, as well as taking care of a viewer's to-watch list for months.

Season 1

Bill Nye Saves the World

Emmy-winning host Bill Nye brings experts and famous guests to his lab for a talk show exploring scientific issues that touch our lives.

The show works so well because it relies so strongly upon scientific and provable facts. Bill Nye Saves the World... is fun to watch. That's not a fact - but it's my opinion.

Little Boxes

After moving from New York City to a small town in Washington state, a biracial couple and their preteen son struggle to adjust to life in suburbia.

Countless movies have examined what happens when a country mouse goes to the city; this one shows that leaving a gentrified urban oasis for a small-town world can be just as jolting.

Oklahoma City

Domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh's bomb attack on an Oklahoma City federal building in 1995 is chronicled in this examination of the shocking event.

Its cumulative impact surpasses what you would expect from your typical Frontline or American Experience production, and colors in the rest of the white supremacist hierarchy in a terrifying and informative manner.
