Sundance on iTunes
So I was poking around the ol' iTunes yesterday, and what do you know, they had just added shows from the Sundance Channel.
"Hey, ma!" I yelled, "we done got ourselves some Sundance programming on the iTunes!"
"Yee ha!" she screamed, tossing off her bonnet and almost knocking over her butter churner. As soon as Bessie Ellie Mary Ellen May gets back from the Maple Syrup and Baptism Festival we'll download ourselves some episodes!"
"If only pa were alive to see this," I sighed. "Why did he have to taunt that rabid goat with a stick?"
At any rate, you can now find a few Sundance shows on iTunes. The shows are all of the "reality" variety, including documentaries The Hill and One Punk Under God, and investigations into real-life dramas such as The Staircase and The First Amendment Project.
The Hill is a documentary that delves into the political world of Congressman Waxler, a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the International Relations Committee.
One Punk Under God looks at the ministry of Jay Bakker, son of Jim and Tammy Fae, as he attempts to bring kids closer to God by fusing Christian and punk values.
The Staircase covers the trial of author Michael Peterson, who was accused of killing his wife in 2001.
The First Amendment Project, a three-part series, looks at incidents where the First Amendment has been challenged, such as Fox trying to halt the publication of Al Franken's book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. The series also covers poet Amiri Baraka and protesters at the Republican National Convention.
All episodes will be the usual $1.99. A free sneak peek of One Punk Under God will be available December 5 through 12. It will debut on television on December 13.
