The Get Down (Netflix)

The Get Down (Netflix) – Starts 12th August – Cancelled

Set in the bronx in the 1970’s, it follows a group of four friends as they leave school for the summer and get into the the emerging rap scene under the tutorage of the illusive graffiti artist the Shaolin Fantastic.

It shares similarities to Vinyl with it being set within a music scene with it having more than few musical bits, though unlike Vinyl its really heavy stylised with its cut scenes, incidental music for certain character appearances, and the acting comes across more of a stage show delivery than that of a tv programme.

Story wise it’s pretty light on the ground and is more an exercise in style over substance.

4.2/10
