I was watching the Television Critics Award and I was so happy to see that Leah Remini and Mike Rinder WON for “Outstanding Achievement in Reality tv” and it was based on their documentary regarding Scientology. In all honesty I cannot recommend the show highly enough.
The show is called “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath”. Too break it down, Leah Remini and former high ranking member Mike Rinder talk to people who have been apart of the Scientology and have left for one reason or another. Some of them have left entire families behind and have not been able to see or talk to them since.
While I have your attention as well, you should also look up the Louis Theroux and his documentary about Scientology.
In case you have been living under a rock this week you may have missed that one of the most brilliant writers and minds of our time have passed away….Sir Terry Pratchett.
Terry Pratchett was probably most famous for writing the book series “Discworld” and influenced millions of people and other writers around the world and was awarded an OBE inn 1998.
Unfortunately though a few years ago he was diagnosed with a rare form of early-set Alzheimers. One of the reasons though that I admired him SO much was because instead of hiding away, he faced his diagnosis head on. I watched his documentary series on others who were also battling terminal illnesses and how they were dealing with it “Terry Pratchett: Living With Alzheimer’s”. It was moving and brought up the issues of assisted suicide. It was incredibly moving and I recommend everyone watch it at some point.
R.I.P Terry Pratchett!
