THE 90'S
June 22, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Acre TV, 12:00 a.m. ET

 
This vintage anthology documentary and entertainment series, called The 90’s, actually predated the Nineties, by a month. It premiered in December 1989, and spent the next year presenting TV in a very unusual fashion: one episode per week, shown in rotation 24 hours a day, distributed via cable. If that sounds like live streaming, it sort of was – just as the content of The 90’s, driven by video artists and ground-level amateur reporters, sort of predated YouTube and reality TV in general. Tom Weinberg and company were on to something, and on to it quite early – and this week, The 90’s is back, with all 52 episodes streamed, in sequence, several times over the next seven days. The Chicago-based artists’ channel doing this is Acre TV, and beginning at midnight ET with the series pilot, you can watch every episode of The 90’s on the Acretv.org website. Watch, in particular, for the episode devoted to marijuanaa truly fascinating time capsule about a still-controversial issue.
