Hmm..I'll have to check out that link. I don't think I've seen any of those shows, but I may have-I'm a big Discovery and History Channel fan.

Coolness. Glad you like the listings.

8 or 9 years ago I realized I was looking for TV listings about China stuff. My wife said "Hey. Post show info to APC." The rest is history!
