Might be true, but boring as hell to watch

The docu might (and probably is) true, but the way it is presented is boring as hell and only good medicin to fall asleep. Even the docu doesn't give much info, but repeats the title endlessly. No proof, no testing, no explaining, just endless and pointless blablabla making an empty statement... for 90 minutes.
