I could watch HOURS of that! I call it "Vacation by drone" and used to tell the wife and kids, "Hey lets watch this and save ourselves the trip!"

REALLY well done series. here!

Pretty cool. I like the shots of "old Florida".. those are all Martin County. Most show Bath Tub Beach and the nearly vacant areas of Jupiter Island.

I like many. There are too many on youtube to list. Just pick one on say 'Deep Water Horizon' and go down the utube worm hole.
As far as a specific show. I like the 30 for 30 'The best that never was'. It is the story of Marcus Dupree.

I can't remember most but I recently watch Last Breath and found it very riveting. A commercial diver is stranded 300 feet down on the seabed with only five minutes of oxygen supply.

"Fast, Cheap, and Out of Control" by Errol Morris.

I liked "Fog of War" by him too.

I just watched Following Seas on Amazon Prime.

This is a doc about the Griffith family sailing around the world. They become shipped wrecked in the South Pacific, and film the events with their 8mm camera, in the early 60’s. The way Mr Griffith dealt with his shipwreck situation is just flat-out impressive. It is sort of like seeing what the Professor on Gillian’s island would have done, had they showed the salvaging of the Minnow. There is a lot more in the film than just the shipwreck. It also shows Mr Griffiths building the new boat, that he sailed around the world 3 times. He made the new boat out of concrete. Again.... very interesting.

The Keepers, Making a Murderer, Murder Mountain, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Free Solo, Valley Uprising, all excellent IMO.

The Keepers was a good call. Another in a similar vein was Deliver Us From Evil. Showed how the church just shuffled around a known molesting priest to different parishes and the cover up.
