User Reviews

Good piece of information on history. Ignore communist-fascinated teenage reviews
12 May 2020 | by acid_darkSee all my reviews

The tv show is good, very informative. As always, one or two things are incorrect, but otherwise quite neutral narrative. Safely ignore younger generation's comments about it, as the saying goes: "who defends communism? Those who never lived in communism" I just don't feel it's anything specialy above average historical documentary and it's unnecessary long, hence the score.
