Surprisingly not bad
15 October 2013 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

I never saw this when in ran on broadcast TV (at that time I had never seen "The Tonight Show") but saw it when I got the box set of Tonight shows. Basically it has Johnny Carson visiting his hometown in Nebraska and reconnecting with old friends, visiting old places and basically talking all about his childhood there. They use old photos to show what Carson looked like back then. This may sound deadly dull but it wasn't! I found it pleasant, warm and VERY nostalgic (I mean that in a good way). Seeing and hearing how the small town has changed over the years was fascinating and Carson never gets preachy or weepy during the hour. A really sweet portrait of a small Nebraska town. Recommended.
