American Experience: Dinosaur Wars

this was a really cool doc about Professors Marsh and Cope, their love of dinosaurs (and other prehistoric animals) and what happens when ego gets in the way of science.

it's sad, since they could have worked well together and done a lot of good work, instead of competing against each other, misnaming animals and causing a lot of hard feelings, and basically destroying each others lives in the process.

there's neat archival footage and some good interviews as well.  highly recommended and you can  watch it free here!
