My only two complaints about the Ken Burn's JAZZ movie ending this week on 

1.  Two hours straight of terribly interesting and entertaining 
information with no breaks doesn't allow for a trip to the toilet. 
Thus, i would recommend keeping the beer consumption to a minimum for 
such things...

2.  Wynton is a blowhard.  I'm a big fan of jazz, but geez, dude, 
what are you smoking?

other than that, it's been the best thing on the tube in years...
