    The Legend of Pancho Barnes - This documentary about one of America's most prolific female aviators is fascinating. She had a profound impact on air racing, Hollywood stunt pilots, and the test pilots of Edwards Air Force Base during the golden age of aviation. Interviews with Bob Hoover and Chuck Yeager recall some interesting stories from back in the day.

    5 Stars.

    Chicago Code was good; don't know how many Stars.
    Streaming video Stars are a little skewed, a lot of off-brand.

    I had the good fortune to get invited to attend a TEDx Conference. Yesterday. A great experience.

    But back to the topic at hand:

    War of the Arrows. Very good. Korean 17th centuryish (?) war epic. It had the potential to get corny in that dancing-through-thin-air martial arts movie way but instead had a somewhat realistic Last Of The Mohicans feel to it.

    Borgia...can't wait for them to put up the 2nd season.

    The Tudors, not as good but the same time period so it was a good transition.
