Thanks to the power of the internet coupled with a decently fast connection from Airtel (after three weeks of wrangling with their call centre) and a brand-new Western Digital MyBook with what was once a lot of storage (scary how fast I'm managing to fill it up) has meant I'm watching a lot of random stuff on the computer nowadays. I'm becoming the TV newscaster's nightmare audience, the guy who needs an ethernet cable plugged into his vein. A couple of things I have to reccommend, the first is the rather funny movie 'Walk Hard' which generally makes fun of musical biopics.
And the second is the absolutely mind-blowing 2007 six-part BBC series called 'The Story of India'. I'm surprised no-one has picked this up in India so far, but I have been fascinated watching Michael Wood travel across the world telling his story.
I know that torrents are illegal and all, and the excuse that I live in a country starved for content (despite having 427 TV channels according to LV Krishnan of TAM, whom I met recently), but my god you can find some fascinating things there. I'm currently downloading a five-part series on the Wehrmacht.
