I find the Doomsday shows fascinating. It's amazing how warped out of shape folks get over things they can't control. Yet they still live their lives based on "tomorrow" ("one day I will retire and follow my dream of...."). And they will not prepare for a natural disaster that will seriously impact their lives.
I also like The Weather Channel's series "It Could Happen Tomorrow". I found the one on NY City being hit by a super hurricane interesting. That was a couple of years ago and NY didn't do anything to prepare. It's not like they haven't been hit by a super hurricane before (they were long over due for one). Oddly enough, TWC was amazingly accurate on the damages that came true when Sandy hit. The people weren't prepared even though they had been warned repeatedly, the States were not prepared even though they had been warned repeatedly, the Federal Government was not prepared even though they had been warned repeatedly.
