| Worthwhile look at the decade
I wasn't alive during the '70s, and I think that that's important to point out; naturally, it'll affect my perception of a documentary on the topic. There's nothing wistful or nostalgic involved, just a history lesson.

In that sense, this is a polished and informative miniseries, focusing on a tumultuous period for the baby boomer generation. Again, I didn't live it, so I can't really speak to its accuracy (was it really that grim?); but it makes for solid television.

If I have one complaint, it's that they didn't cover cinema. There's more than enough material simply between New Hollywood and the industry-changing effects of "Star Wars" to fill an episode. And it would tie in nicely with the Watergate/Vietnam cynicism that seemed so alive and well during the time.

Regardless of this, I'd still recommend this to anyone as a dip in the pool of history.

7/10
