Huge Influence for such a Short Run
1 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was in my early teens, just barely aware of political issues. This show was a graspable take on current events that allowed a young mind to achieve a degree of healthy skepticism of 'mainstream' news.

That flavor has served me well with today's similarly insane political climate. Unfortunately, there is no Great American Dream Machine to turn to for perspective.

Many of the bits were clearly anti establishment and it was those that caused the show to have such a short run. I suspect these days it would never even make it out of the PBS boardroom presentation. It throws today's news entertainment in sharp relief.

At very least, this show is an historically important slice of the early '70s when freedom of speech could, for a time, exist even if it was unpopular with the mainstream power structure.
