"The '90s The Last Great Decade?" review by Suzanne
Premieres Sunday 7/6 on NatGeo

This 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.

As you 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.

Now 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.

Do you know where you were twenty years ago today? Well, there’s a great chance you were tuning in to the O.J. Simpson slow-speed car chase along with the majority of the country.  

On the twentieth anniversary of the infamous white Ford Bronco chase, we would like to provide you with a sneak peek clip into National Geographic Channel’s three-night miniseries event The90s: The Last Great Decade? premiering Sunday, July 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
