“Have fun at Prohibition tonight!”

No, I didn’t teleport back into the 1920s. We’re talkin’ good ol’ fashioned television here. The educational kind, brought to us by a bunch of really nice foundations and Viewers Like You. Programs also known as brain food… yes, even if you’re consuming old timey cocktails while watching.


Anyway, my friends alerted me to the great documentary filmmaker that is Ken Burns when they were on a Civil War kick. Let’s be honest, I was really excited about his documentary Civil War, but I fell asleep twice during the first episode and decided that that just wasn’t happening for me. BUT, I was excited about his latest 3-part documentary Prohibition, and still am, since the last episode airs tonight at 8pm Pacific Time on PBS. Tune in to find out if prohibition gets repealed! I know I’m waiting in anticipation to find out.

If you don’t have a television, or would like to watch from the beginning, you can HERE <-- on the PBS website. Also, according to this site, the first episode is streaming for free via the PBS iPad video app. Either way, check it out.

This post was brought to you by the letter T (for teetotaler) and the number 6 (as in the number of hours of sleep I’ll be getting tonight because I can’t seem to peel myself away from my computer screen). Cheers!

    I love Ken Burns! When kate was talking about the Civil War doc. on Facebook, I tried to find it online but was only able to watch the first 2 episodes. Boo.

    Anyway, I’ll definitely watch this one. He also did one rather recently about WWII that’s supposed to be excellent
