THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“The Weight of the Nation” is a series of short documentaries that focuses on why you’re so damn fat. I hate to put the blame back on the victims, but we already know who the perps are in this situation. So, what can we do? We break down the areas that need focus and we highlight them. It’s everything from fatty foods to HFCS to lack of exercise.
The material is amazing, but not direct enough to capture a large audience. The focus on the young was reason enough for this to have aired on a major network and not on HBO. However, we can guess at why this pertinent information was contained to a smaller audience. Making people fat is a business and business is a’boomin.
The DVD comes with bonus short films and a booklet. The A/V Quality is on par for a documentary in standard definition. Still, it doesn’t look that amazing. I’ve got to learn when to stop projecting certain items. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
