In the 1970s, Bob Newhart found himself literally in the middle of a revolution. He did not look the type. In his "button-down" appearance and deadpan delivery and demeanor, he resembled what he was before he embarked on his standup comedy career; an accountant.

Nostalgia is not history. Like any effort to cram a decade's worth of noteworthy events into eight hour-long segments, CNN's The Seventies, is as remarkable for what it neglects as what it remembers. It's first hour, "Television Gets Real" is a good example.

Some might say we gave up and dropped out, but it was more than that. We chose, rather, to try to change the world by example rather than by protest or force, so off we went to test our theories and beliefs.
