I saw no documentaries about food, plastic or water...?  Were there no documentaries in 2013 about these subjects? If not I guess i should be complaining elsewhere. lol

There are no potentially lifechanging subjects that are more important than food and water so it's a shame there hasn't been any documentaries on this recently. Instead there is a documentary about Linsanity........ I have not seen  this but I struggle to imagine how this would help explain the world in any way whatsoever.
