This question was recently bumped to the front page: Video documentaries about physics?. It lay dormant for many years, which explains why it wasn't closed under the previous absolutely-not policy. Now that we have a more permissive policy on resource recommendation requests, the question is in principle on-topic, but I feel that

this question is too broad to be a good question.

While the idea of asking for documentaries is, I think, quite nice, such threads ought to be confined to much more specific topics. Otherwise,

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format.

What say ye?

I immediately voted "too broad" when I saw it. I think our aggressive closing of closing of homework questions has made us twitchy about closing things. A lot of the questions are interesting but off topic questions that would be closed (rightly so) by today's standards.

I agree, for all the reasons you listed. I have flagged and voted accordingly.
