Okay, I'm a total geek-monster and I don't have cable, so I've been watching a lot of satellite at my brother's, mostly the History Channel - Modern Marvels: Tanks, Jeeps, Caesar's Bridge, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. I also watched some of Battlestar Galactica on the SciFi Channel. The episodes I saw weren't bad for 70s.
Here's an interesting psychological study: I'm a conscientious objector pacifist, but I'm fascinated by military history. I think it's largely because of the application of technology and the dynamics of human decision making and leadership.
