When I was your age...
26 May 2003 | by (90210, USA) – See all my reviews

A program on A&E, this show picks out some interesting modern symbols and provides decent life stories for them. But for the most part, each episode selects a dinosaur from the dusty vaults of 'classic' entertainment and paints a portrait of them so bland, that watching grass grow begins to look like a New Year's Eve party.

Ancient! That channel desperately needs some new blood. Shamelessly having it's own agenda. Abusing it's audience. Concentrating less on artist quality, and more on historical significance. If that's what YOU are looking for, there's a separate channel for you. If you'd rather know more, with less spam and more gusto, than watch The E! True Hollywood Story.

For a documentary, I give it a rotten tomato. It's time to seek youth in this department.
