Out of the several hundred public and private BitTorrent trackers posted here on FILEnetworks Blog, only a handful sites such as MVGroup, Docs4You, OneBigTorrent, Conspiracy Central, etc specialize in documentary series torrents.  Son of Shun is the latest addition to our list of specialized documentary sites-  it’s a private forum which contains several thousand verified documentary torrents, most of which are tracked by public torrent trackers. In short, it’s a great resource for documentary lovers.
