A retrospective of the people and events that marked the 1990s.
The decade is racing to the finish line on an information superhighway now seemingly paved with gold. But bombs, computer bugs and the political sex scandal to end them all threatens to ruin a president and spoil the end-of-the-century party. A new generation of tech entrepreneurs are getting rich quicker than ever before as the dot com bubble grows. Sexual taboos are breaking as Viagra hits the market with an unlikely endorsement by failed presidential candidate Bob Dole.
n the second installment, America becomes ever more divided and fragmented. In Waco, Texas, a religious cult becomes a lightning rod for a fear of big government invading our homes. The awful sight of dead American soldiers being dragged through the streets of Somalia's capital divides America on its role in the world. Even in women's figure skating we find ourselves divided along class lines with the Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan saga and with the rise of Jerry Springer's reality show.
