Fixation on the low times, taking the bad with the bad..
1 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over all a pretty interesting series. But way too much emphasis on the hard, bad, the low times of the 60's.

Mind you I was mainly a kid during the 60's, but I don't remember it being so dismal. I remember a lot of it being "A gas", "Outta Sight"! The series seems to paint the whole decade as mainly a "bummber man"!

Yet still probably educational for people who were are not familiar with the major events (at least as the "news" would see it). Covers the assassination of JFK, the civil rights movement, the Manson family horror, the Hippy scene, the war, etc.

The production quality was superb. They brought a lot of old film and TV clips to life expertly done. And the audio was great as well with the masterful use of period tunes.

Sure all the mostly negative events they emphasis were sort of front in center if you fixated on them, but what Tom Hanks and crew should have realized that it wasn't all about that. Not everyone lived in San Francisco, nor struggled in New York. Life, beautiful life for those that wanted to live it, went on for the rest of us; enjoyed the good of what the 60's brought us.

The show would have been great if it elevated you at least as much as it brought you down.

Interesting, somewhat entertaining, just keep all sharp objects out of reach less you slit your wrists over an overly negative view of the decade known as "The Sixties"..
