A so so documentary. A real waste of time., 20 October 2012
Author: yippeeme-448-910738 from Sweden

Just started watching the documentary "Dogfights" and the first one I saw was about the Thunderbolt against the FW-190. I must say that I have to agree with the majority of the other reviews that based on the one program I have seen it is totally biased towards the American pilots and planes. The Americans who did take part in the war certainly sacrificed a lot and deserve all the praise they get. It's unfortunately some of the so called historians and documentaries that put it all out of whack with their inability to see beyond their nose. Besides that I have never understood why some film companies have to scale down the picture size when recounting something in the past. In this documentary the actual black and white pictures were framed by some sort of background. It does nothing to enhance the viewing experience and is a bit of an irritation. The worst part of the program and which was a real disappointed was the pilot who tried to describe the dogfight while flying. The noise of the engine just made the whole thing worse. Well this is one series that I am not going to watch.
