Started out well but disappointing
12 October 2009 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps if this documentary could be viewed without so many commercial interruptions, I would be willing to give it another try. The first part of the documentary, screened on Sunday night, had more substance, new footage, and a train of thought that was obvious. It was well done in fact and I was looking forward to the second half, screened on Monday night, with good expectation. But I think the film makers, be it the writers or editors lost focus on what they were trying to do, or maybe they were limited by time restrictions. For sure, they had to fit in bits and pieces according to commercials.

Too bad, I was really looking forward to something good - something different, something that would give if not new insight, a fresh look into a piece of history that is so much a part of my life. I would have gone as far as purchasing the DVDs if the show was any good, but it just didn't make it for me.

I think the film makers went out into to many tangents, too many directions, going into various periods of time that didn't allow the show to hold together.

If I had to write a synopsis of this film, I would not be able to do so

  • I have no idea what your main objective was. I think you should go


back and reedit the film, rethink the film, rework the film. With all the material you have, with all the materials still available but you didn't use - this was a poor job. Too bad.
