Whoever thinks this is going to be another one of those glorifying star docs is just partially right.
Yes, many episodes in this mammoth four hour family album are devoted to what a wonderful guy the King had been - and thus leave an aftertaste of triviality behind, but fortunately there are enough interesting aspects about Elvis's moody and egocentric personality, about his shifts in temper, about the dark side of showbiz, about his decline in mental and conditional health to merit an above average standard.
It's all presented in the usual soft-focus manner of television biographies. But the content is okay, though too long-winded.
