12 August 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I am addicted to cable television, most notably E! so I have seen E! 101 MOST SHOCKING MOMENTS IN ENTERTAINMENT HISTORY probably about five times now and although it is not as good as some of the other E! countdowns, it still manages to be entertaining and informative as well. Half of the shocking moments listed in this special were ones I didn't even know about so it was nice to learn some new info from watching this. The list of shocking moments seems some what out of order (Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinksy scandal more shocking than the death of Phil Hartman?) and one can help but think he is ripping off VH1 at times, but overall it's decently made and very interesting. Recommended.
