We MUST to share with you an unsolicited comment we just received from a viewer, which basically brightened an already sparkly holiday season for us, and reminded us why we do what we do: because of you. Happy Holidays to all of you – our remarkably intelligent, incredibly multifaceted, and exceptionally good-looking viewers.

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you that I find Independent Lens to be THE very best program on TV. I am so glad I stumbled upon it several months ago (only wish I’d found it sooner). I have my DVR setup to record every episode. I so often read the topic/description and think I have no interest, and ordinarily wouldn’t watch it, but based on the quality of previous shows, I watch it anyway. Every single time, I come away with a deeper knowledge and understanding of a subject matter that I thought I had no interest in. I’ve not once been disappointed. In a day where television programming seems to get worse and worse, I’m so glad to see PBS/Independent Lens raise the bar. Please keep up the excellent work, and know that you have a viewer for life in me (and often my 7-year-old daughter as well)! If only there was a way to go back and see all the wonderful shows we missed.
