So many terrific, iconic moments in that incredibly entertaining documentary series. Remember when he visits a cookie assembly line, makes a succinct argument about how industrialization has imposed uniformity on humanity, then match cuts from an image of him to a conveyor belt covered with identical gingerbread men?
