The main part, the documentary, is one and half hours, and the rest is a whole movie, a whole TV episode, and some ads. The timelines are very brief, and not very informative. The whole is completely about the USA. I would be much more interested in something similar about societies that are much more foreign and unknown (or rather less well-known). It was ultimately I bit of a letdown; it was boring.

An attempt at a media-revisiting time machine. Good idea, but it could have been done much better. Slim pickings. ( Kev's PICkS : Instead see the fantastic '7-up' series !! "7 Up",.. "14 Up" ,.. "21 Up",.. etc.)
