  • El Biffo's rating of the film Sesame Street

    I remember seeing the very first episode when it was broadcast in 1969. I had already learned how to read 5 years before that, but I could see instantly that this was a form of television programming that was not just innovative, it was revolutionary. It informed many things that came after it, especially MTV in the 1980's, and the style of editing designed to cater to short attention spans.
