Hi Steve,

When you mentioned in the video that if the History Channel was going to go the reality TV route, they should at least endeavor to make history based reality shows, such as when you pitched the idea of Civil War reenactors or people who do living history work. This got me to thinking of the several great shows PBS has done in that format about a decade ago. Shows like Frontier House, Manor House, 1940's House... that plopped modern day families into the circumstances and rules of a given time period. This was as close to historical reality that TV has ever gotten, and I believe they were very well done. I'm curious, as you mentioned you enjoy PBS programming, if you had seen any of those series. Each is about 6 to 8 episodes long I believe.

Thanks Steve! ps don't worry, I'm not going to ask you what your favorite fall time smell is that you sometimes experience in spring but it really should be a summer smell, and what gordon lightfoot song that reminds you of, and what are your top 1000 favorite canadian songs of all time, top 400 canadian national parks, and have you seen supernatural? but if you have an answer... just sayin'. If you don't have an answer, I promise to ask only 14 more times.

I'm being cheeky
