History Makes the Show
21 July 2015 | by joevangelistaSee all my reviews

Amazing show! What I like most about it is the historical background of it all. From Women's Rights to African American Civil Rights and to the assassination of JFK. Hearing about the stories behind the scenes of great contributors to society, astronauts, makes for a great TV show. A lot of my shows have been canceled on TV and really hope this one sticks. I love all the characters and the era it takes place. A lot was happening in the country in the 1960s and I love that we get to see it play out on TV again. There aren't too many shows nowadays that has captured this point in time and I think it's doing an amazing job! The scandal, the drama, the politics of it all is what makes this show worth watching. It's just not a show about women and their Plesantville lives.
