Customer Review

on August 16, 2010
"The Sensational 70s" is a retrospective on the Seventies consisting of ten episodes, one for each year of the decade--1970 through 1979. This DVD set covers many of the major domestic and international news stories that occurred during that era, and it also discusses some of the Seventies' fads and cultural trends such as bullet belts, cruising Van Nuys Boulevard, and punk rock. The series also looks at some more mundane stories that may not interest every viewer--included are news shorts on pigeon raising and New York City's problems with stray dogs.

I saw a couple of these episodes on VH1 in the summer of 1991 and enjoyed them, and was glad to see the series available on DVD. Each episode appears in full, which means that it includes the memorable opening and closing theme music--that music is so cheesy that it's actually sort of cool (and is guaranteed to run through your mind for days after you hear it). The series is an enjoyable look back at the 1970s.
