10 years of Flick Filosopher: sea change

Made-for-TV frequently means “deadly dull and cheap to boot,” but the A&E film Longitude was a surprisingly suspenseful — and highly enlightening — exception. From my review:

Here’s a three-hour movie (four, with commercials) about clocks: clocks being built, clocks being taken apart, clocks being talked about, clocks being restored. It should be as boring as watching paint dry, but instead it’s a thrilling intellectual adventure about the genius and obsession that drives both scientific discovery and scholarship.
