Review: “A very interesting and educational documentary, and surprisingly so. I have watched scores of documentaries on the Stones and figured that this one could not possibly add to that knowledge. It seemed pretty basic in its set up – just interview and cover the four current members – making me think this would be a dull, conventional, linear documentary. How wrong I was. While each episode does concentrate on a single Stone it is not to the exclusion of other members or of other aspects of the Stones’ history. The individual is a spine to build an aspect of the Stones’ story around while giving details of their life and talents. The scene sequence is more thematic than linear, making for an interesting, entertaining journey.”
