I enjoy Kenneth W. Harl's lectures, but I sure wish we had more visuals and even video clips. He makes side comments, like about Freud's books, that without follow-through is quite unsatisfying -- like that Freud's book "Moses..." was unconvincing. It is hard to listen to a talking head so much, and his glances over his glasses are really distracting sometimes. May I suggest bifocals?
