the only earth?

the worst is that i'm still half-watching this

Is the best/worst part of VH1's "I Love the New Millennium" series the way that the cultural commentators have to awkwardly gloss over the obviously terrible things that occurred in a particular year or how they're all required to pretend that the topics they're referencing happened so long ago that the audience needs explanations suitable for extraterrestrials?

Oh, right. I almost forgot what a fauxhawk was and that Katrina ravaged New Orleans. Thanks for refreshing my memory of them one after the other!
