Mike Myers: [while watching ]
[link=tt0063823]
Mike Myers: ] I found myself really crying at "Nowhere Man." In fact, I get a little sad now when he goes, "He's just a nowhere man." And he's spinning around on the record and they're leaving him. I remember just sobbing!

Superb And Essential!
18 November 2003 | by artfiore1See all my reviews

Sadly, an astounding number of allegedly grown-up people in this world are walking around under the impression that the Beatles were just an over-rated rock band that had a bunch of hits and made some girls scream.

These people need to be strapped to a chair and forced to watch this outstanding TV special. Maybe if it's force-fed to them, they might obtain a clue as to the part these four incredible men played in so many areas of our present-day life -- everything from music itself, inter-generational attitudes, fashion, language and hairstyles to music videos, live concerts, graphic design, the music industry and even the fall of communism in the Soviet Union!

This special, more than any other one I've seen, touched on so much of all of that. It should be repeated by the network at least once a year . . . if only to remind people of today from where they have come.
