Storyline

You can quote them in an instant, reference them with just one name, and even dress up like them for Halloween. In this always-expanding pop culture of ours, there are plenty of stars, but precious few icons. On its latest edition of the acclaimed Greatest countdown series, VH1 burrows into the pop persona's that have made the ultimate impact; names so familiar they're recognized and revered in the world's most far-flung spots. What makes an "Icon?" It's not enough to just be famous or to have won a couple of awards. You have to pass one or more of the following criteria: Do they pass the one-name test? Can you dress up as them for Halloween? Did they blaze a trail in pop culture? Did they create a signature character in pop culture? Can you quote them, or their character, in 10 seconds or less? Did society imitate their sense of fashion? Hairstyle? Did "SNL" create a sketch satirizing them? Did someone write a song about them? Was or is there merchandising or paraphernalia that bears...

Decent Effort
23 April 2005 | by superchaosinsanitySee all my reviews

I caught this on VHI awhile ago and was mildly impressed. They had good guest stars(like Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, Colin Quinn, Usher, Bill Maher ,Gene Simmons ,Dick Clark ,Hugh Hefner ,Henry Winkler, William Shatner ,etc.)and they had enough clips from shows ,movies, and concerts. The quotes that they show at the beginning were alittle too random. I also think people like Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, and JFK Jr. were ranked way to high. 200 is a long way to go ,but it's length never really does show because you could just end up watching and not even thinking.

Overall a decent effort.
