The season of summer movie sequels need not apply only to superhero adventures. Apparently environmental documentaries can get in on the action as well, as the haunting and provocative "Gasland Part II" gets a small theatrical release ahead of its airing on HBO in early July. Many people had never heard of "fracking" - a process that uses drilling and high-pressure water to release natural gas from deep underground - until Josh Fox's 2010 documentary "Gasland," which went on to be nominated for an Academy Award.

Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," has become an increasingly divisive issue over the last few years, with claims of damage to local water supplies and other health and environmental concerns dogging the process to extract natural gas from deep underground.

Environmental Protection Agency reports recently obtained by several Pennsylvania families who feared their well water was polluted by natural gas drilling appear to contradict the agency's original statement late last week that the water was safe to drink, according to the investigative website ProPublica and the environmental group Water Defense. A week ago, the EPA said that tests of the well water of 11 families in Dimock, Pa., out of a total of 60 the agency said it would analyze "did not show levels of contamination that could present a health concern.

At the same time, there was a deep belief that when the game was going to be decided in the second half, the Warriors' two season-long standouts, Marqueze Coleman and Max Guercy, would find a way to come through.
