| Top-shelf documentary series! :)
I've watched as much as I could of this series whenever it's been on (when it first came out in 2013; again in 2014; and, once again, last night - June 6, 2015)...and, there's never a dull moment.

I know that the 1960s were as great in many ways as they were bad in many others, but, this is a fantastic series if you like nostalgia; especially if that nostalgia is from your childhood and you remember some of it. I was a small child at the tail-end of the 1960s and I remember bits and pieces of what's on this show. I do remember my Dad almost always being 'gone' until I was about five or 6 because he was away in the Navy during the Vietnam War. I also remember the 1960s as being a great time for children as it was still a time where most parents actually took good care of, and, protected, their children...as opposed to what I hear on the news today. I don't remember any of the horrors mentioned on this show as I was shielded from them by a great Dad and Mom.

This ten-part series literally covers every notable 'American' national event, (and, many world events), from 1960 to 1969...such as when the TV first came out (in Black & White); the introduction of the late-night talk show; The Vietnam War; both Kennedy Assassinations; The British Invasion; Woodstock: and, much, much more. I don't believe that anything is left out!?!?

You have to hand it to Tom Hanks who's produced some great TV series and movies over his award-winning career such as "Band Of Brothers;" "My Big Fat Greek Wedding;" "The Sixties;" and, now he's coming out with two other related TV series..."The Fifties" and "The Seventies."

If you're as nostalgic as I am and you love historical documentaries...this is tailor-made for you! :)
