    Hi NKIT - thankfully I did not pay to watch it, it's free to prime members which apparently I still am though I did cancel again. I just don't use Amazon on a regular basis like I used to so not worth the monthly fee. It is wise to read reviews!

    Hi Dawn - I am not a Prime member so I could not watch it. Thanks for posting that though. I think one of the problems is there has been so little done in terms of documentaries, excluding HOTE. Kind of amazing when you consider how big the Eagles were/are.

    Why am I watching this? They pronounce Frey and Leadon wrong. The English musician mistakes Bob Seger with Pete Seger, and says that Glenn was originally hired as back up vocalist for Pete Seger and Linda Ronstadt but took up playing rhythm guitar so he wouldn't be standing around doing nothing. This English musician states that Felder joined as a rhythm guitarist to help elevate Bernie's leads. I can't finish it right now, got 20 minutes into it.

    This Sunday, Reelz's series Breaking the Band is doing an episode on the Eagles.

    I've seen their episode on Fleetwood Mac, and it was awful - intercut with real footage and photos, they used actors that looked nothing like the band members to do ridiculous "re-enactments" of arguments and such. Talking heads, most of which had nothing to do with the band, made obvious statements like "It's very difficult to work with someone who you've broken up with." There was also a lot of inaccuracies.

    I think we can expect more of the same for the Eagles episode.

    It might be worth a watch just for the giggles; the Mac episode did fall under the heading of "Hilariously Bad."

    There's a preview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oEh3dDeVuY

    The reenactments are quite funny.

    I recorded the Fleetwood Mac one and I have to DVR the Eagles one because I'll be on a cruise when it comes on.

    I watched that video clip early this morning before I headed to work. Its going to be interesting.

    I'm guessing by what I've heard about Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles episodes, it looks like this show is mostly going to be about bands fighting and then breaking up.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    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.

    Thanks, UTW. Looks so bad that it's hilarious! I recorded a show about the Eagles on Audience Network a couple of years ago and it was horrible too. Names mispronounced and rehashing of pictures, clips, and information that is readily available to everyone. Needless to say, it was erased quickly.
    Almost everything I've seen on Reelz has been horrible re-enactments of celebrities' tragic last days.

    On a different note, Shun, have a wonderful time on your cruise! You've had quite the summer so far!

    I saw a preview this morning on The Fastlane FB Page. The acting was terrible and all they talked about was the arguing. I never heard of this station before and had to check my cable guide to see if I get it - I do - lol. It's on Sunday at 10 PM EST. it seems like almost every special done about the group is terrible with the same-old-same-old stuff.

    Shun, have a great time on your cruise !

    I have it set to record as well. I'm sure nothing "new" will be brought up that my fellow borderer's have not seen or heard before.

    Have a great time and safe travels, Shun!
