The sixth and seventh installments from executive producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog, followed in the footsteps of critically-acclaimed series, tackles 10 years shaped by exceptionalism and excess. The eighth edition intersperses rare archival newsreel footage, interviews, and comments by historians, journalists, politicians, celebrities and others, painting a perspective-rich picture of a vibrant decade. The age of Reagan, the AIDS crisis, the end of the Cold War, Wall Street corruption, the evolving TV and music scene, and everything in between, are examined in the episodes.
