Surely anybody who has been around this business should be surprised
at this latest attempt to analyze the phenomena in any serious way.
Just pretending the approach is serious, doesn't make it serious.

Instead of taking "their" analysis seriously, we should write
critiques pointing up how ludicrous the "documentary" is and the
lack of competency of the film makers.  National Geographic is
not above being incompetent.
