    At least it's not full of personal attacks- no thread ever stays exactly on topic but when a thread goes post after post after posts of attacks, it will be deleted or closed.

    I saw part of it. It seemed to me that the show had a decided bias against hippies and degenerated into something about hippies loving the occult and eating human flesh. It talked about how Jim Morrison and The Beatles all loved Aleister Crowley. Everything about it seemed negative.

    Two thumbs down! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You really need some help. A regular psychiatrist couldn't even help you. You need to go to, like, Vienna or something. You know what I mean? You need to get involved at the university level, like where Freud studied, and have all those people looking at you and checking up on you. That's the kind of help you need. Not the once-a-week for eighty bucks, no. You need a team. A team of psychiatrists working around the clock, thinking about you, having conferences, observing you like the way they did with the elephant man. That's what I'm talking about, because that's the only way you're going to get better.

    I have to agree it seemed biased against the hippie movement to some extent. I couldnt take watching more than about ten minutes of it, that kind of pseudo-journalism gets really annoying.

    They stated several facts, and followed them up with assumptions and silent judgements that may or may not have been valid. However when placed between two things one knows to be true, even the wildest of exaggerations often slips by unnoticed.



    What I noticed them say was something along the lines of "the troubled youth of america flocked to frisco" and then turned right around and moments later proclaimed that the kids troubles were "all from the acid they took" when they got there.

    The troubled kids were troubled before taking the acid!


    The satanism aspect just shows how exploitive the whole show was, at least I assume it was, because I dont stick around and let halfwit tv producers tell me what they want me to hear. Even the history channel has to get some kinda ratings, and this was obviously a chance for them to try something to boost up the numbers.

    I wonder who was sponsoring the show?
