Foreign TV Favs

I am increasingly watching more foreign TV shows and documentaries lately. You really get to see a different perspective on all kinds of subjects not politicized with American slant…and this a refreshing change. Thanks to the Net, all these shows are available to download (if you know where to look).

Here are some of my favorites:

5. CBC Hemispheres – Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s own version of 60 Minutes in the States. Faster paced with more stories dealing in Asian and European headlines. A joint venture between Canadian and Australian news organizations that covers the smaller unheard of global issues that slips through American media. Educational!

4. Mind, Body and Kick Ass Moves – Martial arts shown in all forms ranging from Bushido to Filipino Kombatan. This is a great 10 part series revealing the basic moves, techniques and secrets with actual demonstrations and fighting. Produced by the BBC, it has excellent footage and never bores. Bring it on!

3. Japanorama – Hosted by Jonathan Ross, its everything you ever wanted to know about Japanese culture! Season 2 has just been released and has an entire episode devoted to the Otaku (Geek or Nerd). To be fair, I think I know a few myself that fit the bill obsessed with Anime and Metal Gear Solid.

2. Ray Mears Bushcraft – One day you will be alone far away with no cell phone, tired and hungry. Thank Ray for teaching you how to survive not only in the forest, but arctic, desert, sea, and jungle. Now that is a show worth watching!

1. Top Gear – If your need is speed, than this show is it. The most exotic, fastest, and jaw dropping cars you will ever see driven and tested to their limits. Where else are you going to see Ferraris, Lambos, and Bugattis prowling around together? And don’t forget The Stig!

  1. Wow – I love this new bright atmosphere you are blogging in! Now I have a choice between visiting the dark side (mkfly) or the light side (omi4life) of the blogosphere, hehe.
    This CBC Hemisphere show sounds pretty interesting. How do you watch them? Is their a way that I could watch it on the net? or are you getting them through satellite?

  2. Actually, you can view it on free-to-air satellite and also on Bittorrent. I use the satellite method.. 🙂
