TONIGHT: Bob Dylan documentary by Martin Scorcese

Maggie says:
No, really. Tonight on PBS at 9:00 is Part 1 of No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, a Martin Scorcese "picture." (I love when directors still use the word "picture.") This should be great stuff for Dylan fans, Scorcese fans, or folks who don't know much about Dylan and have been hoping a for a PBS documentary to get them hooked. Part of the American Masters series. Tonight: 9:00. Tomorrow: 9:00. Be there.

It was interesting, but there was certain parts of the story left out, including how Bob used up and spit out people.
