Story Of Cool (MSNBC) – Premieres 1st July
A docu-series narrated by LL Cool J, which takes the various connotations of the word cool, and look into the various people and movements in history that related to it.
Using the same set up as shows like The 2000s, each episode takes a theme, and by using various pieces and archive footage and interviews with various celebrities, authors and historians. Shows how the word has been used to be associated with various things.
As documentaries go this follows the usual setup. And with it covering historical moments that other shows have already done, it feels like it is going over old ground. All of which makes it pretty forgettable.
