CNN always does a good job with these "decade" documentaries (60s, 70s, 80s, etc.), and that carries right over into this look at "The 2000s".
Covering politics, current events of the period, music, film, television, and pop culture of all kinds, this docuseries looks at the 2000s from a number of different angles. It's never boring, and the production values are very high. It's nice that at a lot of times (especially during the political sections), they talk to the figures themselves who were making the news in that decade.
The only reason I can't give this the full 10/10 treatment? It's too bad that the non-HD footage of the time period couldn't have been upgraded. When all the interviews and current footage are sparkling HD, it really stands out when the non-HD material shows up. I'm sure cost was likely the issue here, but still it was often very noticeable and jarring.
Overall, though, "The 2000s" was a fun journey through the decade in which I graduated both high school and college. Both in terms of nostalgic and historical value, this one can be watched for either reason and enjoyed accordingly.
