Netscape vs Microsoft or The Michael Fenne Show or Truth or silly fiction or...
26 January 2019 | by jimdefordSee all my reviews

Be prepared for your eyes to roll into and around the back of your head and for several shake-my-head sessions if you decide to take in this one. Whew. It's a doozie!

This docu-drama is all over the place. Seriously -- ALL OVER THE PLACE. It cannot decide whether it is a documentary, as drama or a musical, or...

Watching this show, so far (through part 3), made my brain hurt trying to follow all the convoluted story lines in the midst of a waaaay over-acting Steve Zahn, who wears his "chubby suit" very badly. But, maybe the creators and producers wanted this series to be a very bad joke.

If that is indeed the case, they were very successful. Parts 1-3 are the Michael Fenne Show.

That being said, if you can trudge your way through the over-dramatic quicksand, there are a few interesting facts. It was difficult making it through the first three parts and I was forced to induce my DVR defibrillator by fast-forwarding through some really, really bad acting in hopes of reviving this thing.

This story line cannot seem to separate the definitions of the Internet and the World Wide Web. The script seems to have been written by someone who was not around back then, or it was simply poorly researched.

They keep speaking about how the Internet started but then are actually referring to the creation of the World Wide Web and they even get that timeline completely wrong. Many, many of their timelines are completely wrong and they don't seem to care.

I might have to go re-watch Halt And Catch Fire again to get my mind back on track to what really happened when computers and the Web was really born.
