I’m watching The Get Down

Great show so far.  I’m about halfway through the first season.

This Netflix show is about the rise of Hip Hop in the Bronx during the late 70s.  This is like a better version of the Broadway show Hairspray.    It’s made by the director of The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge, so they definitely aren’t fooling around with the setting of this one.

While it’s historical fiction and not a true story, they introduce real life characters like Grand Master Flash and Ed Koch.   Grand Master Flash was an advisor to the creation of the show to get historical accuracy and authenticity right.

Loving TV right now.
