Country Music

Detalied story of Country Music and its origins, for those new to Ken Burns, he creates his documentaries picking the best stories that define the evolution of the genre and its landmarks, not necesseraly in chronological order or ranking by sales or popularity. Using his later name-baptized "Ken Burns Effect" he is able to create a video atmosphere by zooming a photograph accompanied by narration or music , making the experience of "watching" the early days very rich. Like his JAZZ documentary, where his pillars were Louis Armstrong (creator), Duke Ellington (american legend), Charlie Parker (inovator) and Billie Holiday (diva) he repeats the formula focusing on Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson - with a little Garth Brooks, highlithing female artists as much as male artists (in JAZZ history ladies were mainly vocal artists). I missed Kenny Rogers, George Strait and Alabama but that didn't stopped me from finishing the series very well educated about Country Music.

The Mandalorian

Great story based on the Star Wars saga, following the adventures of a space bounty hunter. Very well produced, with well defined episodes, such as a new mission or a new planet in each one, but with a bigger moral objective that connect all episodes, based on one of the prizes, a living (and cute) one.
