Chris, a '1st year film 'student' ' wouldn't be fractional as knowledgeable as Allistar Cooke. Had you watched the series with interest in learning about your country, much of which, is NOT in the 'rubber stamped' school books, high school or otherwise we are/were taught, you 'might' have learned much.......The series is/was very informative n revealing in so many ways, I wouldn't know how to put it all in one measly paragraph.
I've watched the series many times, n not only enjoy doing so, but gain so much knowledge about American History I was never taught in school!! Allistar Cooke put it best himself. 'The truth was sugared."
