A documentary series focusing on the ongoing Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, evolving music industry, the Iran Hostage Crisis, the sexual revolution, and the rise of foreign and domestic terrorism.
Utilizing archival footage punctuated by contemporary interviews with comedy legends and scholars, this is the history of not only what makes us laugh, but how comedy has affected the social and political landscape throughout history.
Robert B. Weide,
Excellent series that looks at the digital and high tech decade along with rise of black race, outspoken TV and the comeback kid!
"CNN" is once again at it with it's decade series this time it's the 1990's a time when all of us remember the world was at a change! The technology boom and digital age was in full swing with computers, and the arrival of the online game the internet it connected us closer, yet with race the country was still split with things like the O.J. Simpson murder case, and the L.A. riots the police beatings of Rodney King. Also the black movement was felt on TV as many shows and sitcoms were a black movement showcase and cable would explode as viewers now had choices of over 150 channels to watch and choose from! War was still on the menu as the conflict in desert storm was most remembered. And on the political and national landscape a new president was elected the "Comeback Kid" from Arkansas Bill Clinton a southern democrat who was more moderate and to the center as he supported the death penalty and wanted to end welfare with a jobs bills he passed, yet thru his term it would be rocked by scandal much of those would be sexual scandals. Overall good look at 90's decade it's interesting, educational, and historical.
