This is a very interesting series of shows made for VH1 Classic. If you a fan of videos from the 80’s & 90’s then this is for you. Five influential directors are featured in there own episode. They talk about the making of the videos along with the bands featured for most selections. The interviews are fun to watch and feature some interesting moments like Bono doing a Sinatra impression. Along with clips of the videos mentioned you also see some behind the scenes stills.
Not every video is featured and the half hour length of each episode does leave you wanting more but for what is featured it’s entertaining and you’ll find yourself wanting to seek out the videos talked about. The picture quality is top notch as well. Great to have this in my collection.
