i kind of like it. i'm not sure if i wanted to like it or not, but i just keep watching it (ok, admittedly, when one of the CSI episodes is not on somewhere). just now, i finished watching a "pod" (ok, that's dorky, but so is al gore) about the border patrol between US and mexico where the journalist was allowed to tape real-time car inspections -- in one car, they found 12 people hiding in the back of a yukon and in another, at least 5 bricks of marijuana.
surely, the topic of how legalizing marijuana would save the world trillions of dollars did not come up, BUT the journalist provided a good look at the job of border patrol officers. as in, these are just guys working and their job is hard and dangerous, regardless of how anyone feels about the kind of men who choose law enforcement as a career.
the next "pod" is called "between allah and j-lo" -- a segment about egypt's confused young culture.
and i'm loving the currentTV website, where the schedule is really real-time. of course, i can see that if there really is more content that may be difficult for upkeep.
YES, i'm thinking of sending something in.
so far, i say "huzzah" to al. let's see where it takes us.
