    Dawn - If you get HBO they may repeat it. They usually do with specials like that. Like I said, I thought the first part was much better than the second part.

    I caught a new George Michael documentary on Showtime or HBO. Has anyone else seen it? He wrote and directed it, and its not that good - he should have let someone else do it. BUT, I think we took him for granted! His voice and singing....really amazing. I mean, nobody sings like that now - I can't think of anyone. I have moved him up into my top five singers along with Freddie Mercury and Eddie Vedder. Some of the music and entertainment industry luminaries who appear in the doc cried as his songs were played. I honestly never realized just how good he was.

    Hi Mary, it must have been on Showtime. Did you see the show today ? I don't get Showtime - I can't afford it. I just paid my $173.00 cable bill today. And that only includes major networks, CNN, TLC etc. The only prime channel I get is HBO. And, this is only internet and cable - not my phone.

    I watched the George Michael doc a few weeks ago. It was very stylish but lacking in good "storytelling". Despite all the big names who took part, I found those parts rather dull.

    The part where George described performing in the tribute to Freddie Mercury at a time where his own lover was dying of AIDS was quite moving. Also interesting to learn he directed his anger about the death of his lover into his legal battles with Sony.

    I recorded George's documentary, but I haven't had the time to watch it.

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    UTW, totally agree about being stylish, but lacking in good storytelling. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't "better" with all of the material they had, but then I saw that he did it himself. I liked how they played the records on that turntable, and I'll watch Mark Ronson in anything! He's in the Lady Gaga doc, too!

    George's voice is just amazing in that Freddie Mercury tribute - crazy good.

    I hope a legit director does another documentary about him.
