I think the absolute highlight of the first installment is the first few minutes of "Day 4" when Paul suddenly begins to compose Get Back. If you gave up on the film for any reason, go back and watch that part. What a rare treat to watch a great songwriter giving birth to one of his best songs--with the added bonus of seeing Ringo and George, who are still half asleep, come alive when they realize what is happening.

I agree. I would single out that section to show what this documentary accomplishes. It's amazing that the Beatles had the foresight to film all these creative sessions.

but no one as "in your face" as Yoko.
Even though she is there, she is almost always silent. The others talk about John/Yoko, but the take away is that it's John's life and none of the business of the others.

Another major take away I have is how terrible a loss it was when John Lennon was killed so early in his life.

We FINALLY finished up the third and final episode on Christmas eve.......what a great documentary. I know it could get a bit tedious if you're not a big Beatles fan, but seeing those guys in the final days of the band is a piece of music history that may never be accomplished again. Of course the last 45 minutes documents the live performance on the rooftop. What an incredible job of editing and piecing together footage by Peter Jackson.

Getting the general public's opinion on street level while they're playing up above is priceless, I've watched it twice already. Then the cops show up for the "disturbing the peace" complaints....I mean, just incredible. It's amazing to think how I bet NONE of those people could probably ever imagine that we would be watching their footage over 50! years later on Thanksgiving/Christmas evening. One of my favorite parts was an elderly lady complaining that she was woken up from her nap by the loud music....what a moment in time.......now you would pay thousands and thousands of dollars to see them performing live. Anyway, if you haven't seen it or may not be interested in the whole documentary, at least watch the last hour and a half of the third episode, it made my day.

Buck, Missed this post!

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It takes a commitment (3 x 3hr) movies but to my wife and I, it was well worth it.

Loved it all.
