American Experience is a series that is so large and grand that it is nearly too difficult to describe in review form. For over twenty years, PBS has made dozens of documentary films for this series which are often the best that can be found. The topics covered are too great to elaborate on.

American Experience allows us to have a better understanding of what we as a people have been and what we represent to ourselves and the world.
