Great Summation

Pros:
Great Summation
Sexy British Narrator

Cons: it's really ... Really annoying when the narrator tries to talk with a southern accent for absolutely every quote from an American regardless of what their actual accent was. Stop it. Minus one star for that.

And one small thing; ending with Barrack is great and touching, but it made it sound like theres nothing left to be done. Let's not allow perceptual complacency stop the progress.

- Jonathan K. Hoopes "Pytry"

Fair but too much to cover in an hour and a half

Best to do away with the accents. Too bad the 80's and 90's were skipped.

Good summary however considering the Hour
