The Fabulous Sixties

"It was thorough but it tended to focus more on the turbulence and conflicts of the 60's and not the wild and wonderful side. We need both for sure but the 'wild and wonderful' was overshadowed. I had this silently showing at a 60's party while a whole lot of other things were going on and some of the graphic nature just didn't work for that kind of venue. I guess when I read the word "fabulous" I was equating it with more of the fun side. (I wish there was a video of the 'fun' side of the 60's.) Having lived through the turbulence and violence of the 60's I am very aware of the sacrifices people made in civil rights, during the Vietnam war, governing this country, speaking up and moving forward in music, inventions, space etc. Like I said, it was thorough. It just wasn't what I expected in totality. Maybe the title should be changed?"
A wonderful vintage documentary!

"Wow, was this fun stuff! A breezy, 70's TV look at the prior decade, fresh from having experienced it! A lot of pop culture obscurities, (I love LBJ lifting his beagles by the ears...) you'll probably end up watching the whole thing in one sitting. Enjoy seeing clean cut American kids become angry, long haired radicals in the space of 10 viewing hours! Our parents were nuts!
A Reasonable Compilation

"The original title for this series was, I believe, called "Decades." It does a reasonable job of capturing the tempo of that time and is presented in the style and format of the period. It is an interesting look, overall."
GREAT PERIOD - TERRIBLE PRODUCTION

"This DVD is pathetic by way of sound. The video is poor. The titling is second rate. It runs maybe six hours with perhaps thirty minutes of good viewable images.
The writing for it is also inferior. In sum, it is terribly produced."
