is a very interesting and educational documentary. I don't
know that I completely agree with all of their comments and
assumptions, but mostly it's pretty accurate. I was in my
30's during this time and too busy living to really care
about most pop culture or politics. It was before the
internet, too, and I didn't pay attention to the news. So it
was interesting to look back at things that I heard about,
some just barely.
get older, the decades are not so clear-cut because once you
stop going to school, you just get busy and live your life.
The 60's were when I was a child, and the 70's were when I
was in junior high and high school. The early 80's were when
I was in college. So after 1986, it's all kind of a blur!
The late 80's, the 90's and the 2000's all sort of blend
together for me.
after watching this, I know that the 90's were the decade of
Roseanne, and Friends, and Seinfeld, and O.J., and Rodney
King, and Tupac, and the Oklahoma City bombings, and Waco,
and Clinton, and the start of the internet. OK, I did some
of that already because I got into the internet fairly
early, in 1994, and everyone else stated getting on it in
the late 90's. I live in Southern California when O.J. and
Rodney King happened, so there was no missing those events.
O.J. took over the TV and ruined our soap operas!
I don't know if I'd call it the "last great decade", but it
was certainly a good decade for me and for a lot of people.
It was pre-9/11, and it was the start of the internet, and
there was a lot of peace and prosperity.
Anyway, you should definitely watch this show and maybe even
buy the DVD's for your family. It's very good and worth
watching. Rob Lowe narrates.
