This is Life with Lisa Ling on CNN - season 1

Anyone watching? I've so far seen Ep. 1: 'Sugar Daddies, Sugar Babies', Ep. 3: 'Genius Experiment', Ep. 4 'Filthy Rich' (about the oil boom in North Dakota).

I wasn't so interested in Unholy Addiction, so I skipped it.

Decent show and somewhat insightful but at the same time, the reporting isn't really very in-depth and has only mostly anecdotal examples. I guess you can't expect that much w/limited time (production and air time).

I was hoping to hear more about the "genius experiment" than just the stories of a couple of folks.

The Filthy Rich ep was interesting and was at least more in-depth than brief things I'd seen on financial news channels/shows before.

Never heard of it, what's the premise of the show? Yeah, I'm too lazy to look it up.

I've been watching it. Interesting at times. You didn't miss much in the Unholy Addiction episode. It just went on for way too long. It was like taking, say, a magazine piece on issue that could be read in 15 minutes and then stretching it out to a full hour 'documentary'.

I should watch the Filthy Rich episode. I heard they were reporting on Willison, ND and I'm just two hours away. Everyone around here has been affected in some manner by the oil boom.

I guess I've only heard of it because I semi-regularly tune to CNN and also have some manual recordings set up late at night to at least sorta force the tuners to decent channels (e.g. CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg Channel, etc.), instead of buffering crap like infomercials or stuff that have definitely have 0 interest in.

Thanks! I guess I was right to pass on that ep.

Thanks. Just seems like more "reality" stuff. I'll pass, but thanks for post, as I'm always interested in finding new newsworthy stuff to watch.
