| Well done series that looks at the years of excess and bigger is better with open eyes!
The 1980's was the years that I was growing up so I remember those times so well from the news, TV shows, I watched to the toys I collected to the Ronald Reagan years those times were the best. And with this new CNN series called the "Eighties" it's informative and educational and historical as it highlights the times of the excess and VCR years so well. So far episodes have shown how TV exploded with cable and many shows and so many choices as 24 hour news started and talk shows were at a dozen, plus the world and medical community was shocked with the dawn of the AIDS disease and "The Reagan Years" were filled with high times of the rich and the well to do and it ended with drama and scandal. And the cold war ended and technology took off with computers and wall street rose the markets took off remember "Greed is Good"! Overall another excellent series from CNN that takes you back in time the memories are nonstop you will want to relive life all over again!
