OLIVER STONE'S UNTOLD HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES
November 12, 2012  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

Showtime, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Stone and American University history professor Peter Kuznick, co-authors of a book of the same name as this series, launch a 10-part series offering what they say is a different look at American history. Don’t expect anything revolutionary, or at least Revolutionary: the episode presents its ideas chronologically, and begins tonight by looking at the 1930s. So if you’re looking at the truth about the ride of Paul Revere, I fear you must look elsewhere.

US History viewed/twisted by thru left-wing, liberal propaganda... No thanks. I had to put up with left-wing Profs. in college who made us watch Oliver Stone films and treated the films like they were 'real' history.

Good news, TVWW readers: An advance copy of David’s upcoming book from Doubleday has just arrived! The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is now available on Amazon for pre-order for its November 15th release. You can read some of the dustcover summary here, including: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way. In tracing the evolutionary history of our progress toward a Platinum Age of Television,…he focuses on the development of the classic TV genres, among them the sitcom, the crime show, the miniseries, the soap opera, the Western, the animated series and the variety show. David Bianculli's book is the first to date to examine, in depth and in detail and with a keen critical and historical sense, including exclusive and in-depth interviews with many of the most famed auteurs in television history.” —TVWW
