If there is any tv show I recommend, it is “30 Days” on FX. “30 Days” is written by Morgan Spurlock, and it’s a documentary of people doing something out of the ordinary for 30 days, to gain a new perspective on an issue that is facing society. Last season had Morgan spending 30 days in jail, while other people spend 30 days learning first-hand about gay/straight issues, Christian/Muslim issues, a binge-drinking mom (college daughter), outsourcing to India, and Morgan lived for 30 days on minimum wage. Not as easy as it sounds.
This year’s season kicks off with Morgan working for 30 days in a West Virginia coal mine. It will be riveting! Watch “30 Days” on Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m. on FX. (we record it and watch the next day) The 2nd episode features a retired football player living for 30 days in a wheelchair.
Update: I just finished watching this episode, and I have 2 things to say. As an environmentalist, we have no right to do what we’re doing to those mountains. As a humanitarian, we must stop this.
Certainly we can’t change our energy sources right away, but we have to make a real dedication to move forward. If not for the environment, then for our fellow citizens.
If you missed it, set your DVR for Sunday at 11:00 p.m.
