I usually stay away from any documentaries these days that are about "the art of design" because they almost parody themselves with how pretentious and self-important they are. This is a docu-series, and so far it feels pretty different. I jumped straight to the sneaker design episode (Episode 2) and it felt like Chef's Table for but for non-food.
Anyway, I'm going to be checking out more episodes, because each episode is about a sort of more obscure type of design (I think there's an episode about stage design). If you are as documentary obsessed as I (so you can go to work and share your new useless knowledge with everyone), these so far seems like a pretty good choice. I'll probably avoid the photography episode because there's almost no way it can't be pretentious and up-its-own-butt, but I'll definitely watch the more out-there ones.
The real documentary I'm waiting to premiere on HBO is Tickled at the end of the month. If you don't know what Tickled is, you can watch the trailer here. Anything I watch between now and the premiere of Tickled is just to pass the time to a documentary I've been wanting to watch for months.
