Hands down the best program on television
Perserverence pays off. I had been writing to Frontline in the hopes that they would consider offering more of this outstanding series for purchase on itunes. That day has arrived!!! This is by far one of the most important and fundamentally balanced programs on television. In addition, Will Lyman is a phenomenal narrator with a one of a kind voice. Thanks Frontline and thanks itunes. You have just made my week...

Investigative Journalism at its finest
The best investigative journalism I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. I'm able to take these shows to the gym with me and watch while I ride the stationary bike :p Really makes exercising less dull.
