The holidays are a wonderful time to watch outside the box. That is, TV and movies not on your usual playlist. I spent a good afternoon last week spelunking my way through Netflix, adding new and noteworthy selections to my queue.

I finally pressed play on one of those selections Monday night and I wanted to pass it along.

“Norman Lear: Just Another Version Of You” is a documentary about the life of television’s preeminent writer and producer. His work challenged a generation and remade the medium forever.

It’s a great story and he’s a captivating person, still going strong at 94.

If you’re a TV nut who grew up with the likes of Archie, Edith, George and Louise, head to your Netflix immediately.
