  • Hits every taste bud!!!

    History Channel, you hit this one out of the park. Yes, we know French cuisine has it’s throne, and Italy owns pasta. But...take the American economy & our love for invention & ingenuity, the 20th century business model & the rise of tycoons and out comes a fresh and fun take on a segment of our history. The whole family was hooked. Wish it was longer!

    I hope the show continues. I learned so much about things that never ever crossed my mind to question. M&M's!
  • Informative, but..

    It seems like they recycle a lot of clips and footage that I’ve seen in other history channel specials, obviously to save money. The last episode seems to be mostly clips for the second one.
