This series examines the decade of my teenage years, and includes good journalism, commentary, and brings back memories
31 July 2018 | by smithtimeSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed all of these CNN documentaries of the decades from the 1960s on. The 1990s I enjoyed very much. In "The Nineties," the key stories of the day facing Americans are covered. We see the major elections, the violence and racial tensions, prominent stories and controversies, and memorable moments.

I particularly enjoyed the episode covering the 1990s' music! In that episode, the transition from glam hair metal to grunge is covered, sometimes with footage and music videos from MTV. The great commentators like David Fricke, Lori Majewski, Michael Azerrad, Steven Hyden, and of course Alanis Morrisette have been consulted and are featured. Their coverage extends from books about Nirvana, 1990s music, and music in general that they have each written. They were present noticing what was going on, and relay that to the viewer in the episode "Isn't It Ironic?" a title taken straight from Alanis' album "Jagged Little Pill."

I was noticing some videos I recognized, but in the section on Britpop, I was wondering if anyone could tell me which Blur music video is featured during that section? In the music video, the band's heads are revolving while they are singing. I've not seen it before and would like to know the title. Thanks in advance.

So overall, "The Nineties" is worth watching and very good!
