iTunes had something interesting for a free download, for a documentary series that PBS will be running soon - Carrier. I've since downloaded and watched the entire thing, and I have to say, it looks like a really compelling miniseries about the life on the USS Nimitz while out on deployment at sea.

Just watching this, I'm really reminded of several episodes from a couple of science fiction shows, namely an episode from Season 2 of Battlestar Galactica, when a film crew is allowed on board the ship to see what life is like on there.
The producer says that this is non-fiction television - not reality television, which is an interesting way to describe it. I despise reality television - it's not real. This looks to be a lot more honest, a lot more interesting. This looks like it'll be a stellar look at life in the military and Navy. I'll be keeping my eyes out for this.
