Together for the first time this series reveals the fun and fascinating pop-culture and historical highlights of each decade.

Review: We love documentaries here at the Legion, especially pop culture themed ones.  We have watched a lot of "We Love the 80s" and other documentaries about the decade we grew up in with our kids to kinda show them how life has changed, but this set tops them all.  Not only were we able to watch this with our kids and give them an amazing and in-depth history of our culture for a great part of the 20th century, but we ourselves learned a lot along the way, as well.  These DVD specials are well produced and fantastically in-depth and entertaining.  We cannot recommend these enough for nostalgia, education and even homeschoolers!
