Jean Michel Basquiat,
I suppose this series could better research some of its featured items, but its often good entertaining stuff. So often I am brought back to some fond memories in TV history, music history and some of our quirky cultures and customs that we've had in the past.
20-1 features so far have only been on a purely entertainment history. I would have liked to see some countdowns in other areas as well, such as top 20 criminals, politicians, disasters, moments in the last 200 years of Australian life. But I guess it feels it must stick to purely humorous stuff. The order of the 20 I would often dispute and waaaayyy off.
Take it for what it is... good entertainment, that lets us reflect on some of our personal upbringing and the happenings at various times of it. Probably best not to conclude you could pass a history test after watching it though. It would make a good DVD collection, if they ever made it. That remains to be seen.
