I've been using ubuntu for like 3 years as my main os. I've used terminal many many times but never have I deeply understand it. I run commands, I'm familiar with the basic ones, but i want to dig deeper. Is there any video introduction(i like to lay back and watch tutorials instead of reading books) to novice-intermediate to advanced command line?

Thank you.

Bash Introduction

Accelerated learning

Advanced bash

Nowadays, I don't really like video lessons, I can read faster than hear someone teaching, if you want some reading material:
