Mormons on TV

Utah is abuzz about a two-part documentary about the LDS Church that airs Monday and Tuesday on PBS. One aspect of the coverage is the fact that the church will be getting some national exposure. The other aspect is speculation on how the film will portray the church. The two newspapers in Salt Lake City have apparently seen it, and consider it to be well-balanced. From my experience, Mormons are pretty sensitive about criticism, so when I see these papers say it's "balanced", I tend to think it will be on the favorable side. However, we shall see. I'm sure there will be a lot of commentary after it airs.
