Is on this Wednesday night. I heard about it because one of the people they feature, Alan Barges, is someone I know. Here is the preview link: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/taboo/4597/Overview#tab-Videos/07667_00

I haven't talked to him/his family much for several years, although some of my family stay in touch with him. I was surprised to see his story on television. Alan Barges is a nice person, and so are his family. He used to sell cars for a living and was a Civil War reenactor - I hope he meets his goals.

Fat as taboo. Only in a wealthy society.
