    Thanks so much for alerting me about this series. I guess I had heard of it but didn't really think much about watching it. I saw the first three episodes today and I am hooked. I was in high school and college in the sixties and the shows bring back a lot of memories.

    I think I got all episodes of the Sixties.. Usually for the CNN things I record, I skim through to make a quick check to see if the whole episode is there. Maybe not a complete FF through it, but 3FF + skip forward to check a few minutes at every 15 minute break.. If none of those show breaking news, it likely is the full show..

    (and I even record the reruns of smerconish and the fareed zacaria show for similar reasons.. sometimes one of them has breaking news in it.. plus the OP can't tell the same day rerun apart anyway.)

    For those interested, Monday there's a "The Seventies" quiz show on CNN. Obviously it's timed to push the series, but sometimes those are fun, and there's generally little on Monday nights during the summer anyway (well there's hockey, so I'll probably record the quiz show.

    Perhaps "The Seventies" needs it's own thread?

    Well, the first couple years of the 70s were really the tail end of the 60s... :D

    That's true of any decade.

    Or was the tail end of the 60s the real beginning of the 70s? :D

    I kind of think that the 60s ending with the deaths of Hendrix, Morrison and Joplin.

    ;) Disco really didn't hit it big until the second half of the 70s anyway.

    To me, the barrier between the 60s and 70s is pretty deep in the 70s...1974ish?
