Science Documentaries

One couldn't call themselves a serious, or even intermediate addict without having a personal soft-spot for the science documentary. These films will amaze the viewer and provide that sense of wonder and sometimes disbelief at how science has shaped our lives and will continue to affect us in times to come. Science documentaries = mandatory.
