The 20 best documentaries

The Game of Thrones season finale is this Sunday June 15th and it also happens to be Father's Day!  So what about surprising your guy or father with a few (or 20) of the best documentaries now that his favorite show is on a break.  This list has something for everyone.  And dare I argue that this could become a positive stay-at-home date-night ritual for you and your husband that leaves you with something other than the kids to discuss on your next real date-night out!
