ldh's review

What a wonderful show!!! One of the most interesting and ultimately uplifting thing i have seen in a while. It has all that a fan of Baz Luhrmann could expect: lush over the top production, beautiful cinematography, and fantastic music, not just as a soundtrack, but as an integral part of the film itself.

After watching the pilot, i simply couldn't stop and had to finish all 6 episodes. My wife was hoked as well. Chronicling the rise of Hip Hop in the south Bronx in 1977, the series is so well researched regarding not only the music, but also the history and politics of New York City during that time. Visually stunning, and populated by fantastic performances, i was literally transported to a place and time that holds a particular emotional place in my heart. It's perfect as far as i am concerned.
