Our thoughts:

How have we not been watching this series? It is a great mix of music, drama, and 70’s nostalgia. Typical Martin Scorsese style, which is awesome, yet at times a bit over the top. A few episodes are also heavy on the adult content. Over all the series is very well made. Behind the camera, and in-front of it. I mean, seriously, this cast is awesome. One of my favorites being Ray Romano, seeing him in this series is like nothing I’ve seen him in before. I have to admit, going in, I wasn’t so sure Bobby Cannavale could carry a series like this, but by the time I finished episode three – I was sold. I am now huge fan. We’re really hoping for a second season.

    I haven’t heard about this series, but I love that it’s set in the 70’s entertainment industry.
