I was wondering if anyone knows where to find full-length video files of the show "The Monastery" that debuted on TLC in 2006? It was a show about five men of different backgrounds that went to live in a Roman Catholic Benedictine monastery for 40 days. I had never heard of it until today and now I really want to see it but can't find it anywhere online. If anyone's seen it, do you have any thoughts or reviews about it? I might go to a catholic forum to see if anyone knows of it there as well. But first I was wondering if any Orthodox knew of it and what their thoughts, views, reviews, etc. are?

There was also a companion series, "The Abbey", which followed a group of women who joined a convent. I only managed to see a couple of episodes of each, but I wasn't particularly impressed. But by all means, watch it yourself and draw your own conclusions.

I found out on another forum about a British version of "The Monastery". Here's the link if anyone's interested:

The show is broken up into 18 parts. But still, if anyone knows where to find online "The Monastery" from TLC or "The Abbey", it would be much appreciated.
