    Noted.

    It better be good, or we will all flame you for bringing it up or badger you endlessly about Synchronet 10 Sharks With Freakin' Lasers Edition.

    Better that than badgering me about my spelling of "series". :-)

    Here's a bit more background on the docu: https://www.reddit.com/r/bbs/comments/k32cpk/update_on_the_bbs_documentary/

    It will be hard to top the BBS Documentary that Jason Scott did a while back. Especially now that many of the "movers
    and shakers" have passed away since.

    But this new one seems to be around BBSing more today. It's certainly worth a look.

    I've had some involvement with the film maker. He's a passionate guy keen to tell a good, well documented story. It's certainly nice to see something new and current about the BBS scene as we round out 2020.

    I'm about half way through the first episode. I enjoyed Jason's very much from a "historic" point of view. It's interesting to see something from a current point of view as well.
