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: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is now avaialble on Amazon.

Doubleday says: “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."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
