Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project

quote [ Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project - a new documentary by Matt Wolf. Marion Stokes was an activist who secretly recorded television 24 hours a day for 30 years on 70,000 VHS tapes. ]

Apparently this preserved material the broadcasters themselves had dumped. And then there is this deeply eccentric story.

Dinosaurs: The Making of TV?s Saddest, Strangest Sitcom Finale

quote [ The show was called Dinosaurs, and it was essentially an inverse of The Flintstones. A sitcom set in prehistoric times, it followed a family of dinosaurs that used technology, got married, had kids, and went to work, all while humans lingered around as stupid creatures worthy of ridicule. But in its finale, the show?s creators twisted that premise to give a grave warning: Driven by ignorance and greed, the dinosaurs accidentally spark an Ice Age that causes worldwide extinction. ]

I have vague memories of liking this show.
