    Yeah, I remember hearing that he was in history channel shows as well based on his expertise.

    That article's a little over three years old. By this point, I would imagine he's either completed or is close to completing that doctorate.

    I remember reading about his course on Rome and Film; he said a lot of students signed up thinking it would be fluff course taught by an actor; then when the saw the syllabus and saw that it was serious course, and about 1/3 to 2/3rd dropped it.

    I remember him from both Robocop and from the Engineering and Empire Series, the latter I enjoyed.

    I've long been a fan of Weller's--Buckaroo Banzai and RoboCop piqued my interest but it was Naked Lunch and The New Age that sold me on his strange, intense brilliance. As a struggling academic myself, I say bravo for him.

    My Humanities instructor had several copies of various episodes of Engineering an Empire for us to borrow for papers we had to write. They were very well done and the 3D animation was well detailed and executed. Peter Weller narrated/hosted every episode, and his expertise was displayed during the Rome episode.

    I've come to think of him now as the knowledgeable host of history documentaries.
