It was pretty good, I stumbled it upon it about 10 minutes in.

Being able to see the guy that came up with Donkey Kong was cool, especially since I stumbled upon MAME initially while doing a search for "Donkey Kong" a few years ago!

Gameheadz was excellent!.

If you didn't get a chance to see it, make sure you tape one of the showings to watch at your leisure ... well worth the trouble.

The background it provided on the ATARI company alone made it worth watching.

Only one gripe: I wish they had put more focus on the arcade scene and less focus on console gaming, but that's just me ... and I'm hard to please.  ;)

Yeah, I watched it on wednesday and it was awsome. Does anyone know if it will be on again. I want to record it so I have a copy I can always watch.
