THE SIXTIES: "TELEVISION COMES OF AGE"
May 29, 2014  | By David Bianculli

CNN, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
MINISERIES PREMIERE: This 10-part documentary series begins with Television Comes of Age, a scene-setter that works perfectly, because just about everything of importance that happened in the Sixties, except for Woodstock, was filtered directly though the TV screen. I have to admit to what has the appearance of a conflict of interest, since I appear in and advised on this opening installment of The Sixties. But there’s no conflict, as I see it, in me praising the results very highly – it’s such a good and concise retrospective of the issues and television of that decade, I can’t wait to add this hour as the new opening-night introduction of my Television History & Appreciation of the ’60s and ’70s college class. For a full review (of the series, not my class), see Bianculli’s Blog.
