      PBS is like Christmas morning; can’t wait to see what’s coming next. I especially like the repeat airings and that you’ve incorporated regular programming into the fundraising drives – it’s more like Thanksgiving than Christmas – lots to be thankful for: quality, creativity, compelling, refreshing, and tasteful…

      I love PBS. I do wish that PBS would make the programing a bit more available and for a longer period of time for streaming online. My DVR was not working properly, and I missed Hollow Crown’s Richard, and 1 episode of Silk – but due to the narrow viewing window for streaming, I am at a loss as to how and when I can catch up on missed episodes. Also, listing an expiration date on videos would be helpful, thus viewers will know by what date they have to watch a particular video before it is no longer available online. Thanks!

      I love the great Performances at the Met, but I am shocked at their performing an anti semitic opera, for shame,

        Who said they were? And who decided it was “antisemitic”? Do you even know what you’re talking about? What opera???
