VINYL SEASON ONE DVD REVIEW...12:01:00
Good Morning Lovelies,
Having been waiting for this show for a long time, I finally managed to sit down and get the chance to watch ‘Vinyl’. The TV show from Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger. Two geniuses in their own fields, who have now come together to make a dream.
And it really is a dream. While the first few episodes take a while to get into the characters soon become firm friends and it is a great look into the 1970s, where the world was beginning to build their own image and celebrate the stars that were making the genres we all know today.
Following Richie Finestra, the show sees him try to run his own record company – which produces some great music – but soon finds himself faced with a number of personal challenges that make him have to re-evaluate his life and the music he is making.
As I said before lovelies it can be a little slow in places, but if like me you would love to travel back in time to the 1970s then it is a real winner. There are figures who you know are meant to be based around famous faces so many still love today. And the cast play them well.
With familiar faces appearing in the form of Olivia Wilde and Bobby Cannavale, the show has the talent to be great. The talent is able to use their skills and portray characters that have a great way of merging the audience into their viewing.
Sex, drugs and rock n roll still live on in 2016 because of this. It would be great to see more of the rock n roll in the next season if there is one, because that was the only thing this show really lacked. I was hoping for more of the great music we were hearing. I wanted an ‘Empire’ style amount of music and I wanted it a lot more when the show ended.
If the creators add more of this in then they definitely would have a winning formula on their hands, to add to the already great production they are making. Plus we all know that Jagger and Scorsese have never lacked in giving us great music and great soundtracks.
There so if you are looking for an easy way to travel back in time to the 70s then this is it. Grab the rollers, the flares and sit back because this show is worthy of a themed binge-watch that will have you dancing in the streets afterwards.
I am giving it…
