Audience Reviews for The '70s

"The '70s" shows it all that happened throughout the decade, including Kent State, disco, feminism, Watergate, and the oil crisis. I love the '70s decade, plus this miniseries as well, and I would like to see "The '70s" again when I find it on DVD.

Eric On His Fantasy Quest Vs. The Real World

Not anywhere near as good as "The 60's" with Julia Stiles and Jordana Brewster. Still, some redeeming qualites.
