Amazon Studios and HelloSunshine production breathe life into Taylor Jenkins Reid’s New York Times Bestselling novel, ‘‘Daisy Jones & the Six,’’ in a music/drama series about a late 1970s fictional rock band fronted by two feuding charismatic musicians Mad Max: Fury Road Riley Keough as the title character Daisy Jones and Me Before You Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne.
The two lead singers, Daisy and Billy, are drawn together personally and artistically in the next few episodes. Their complicated musical partnership has viewers drawing connections to the 2018 film A Star Is Born, which catapulted to the height of fame fresh off the success of their album. After the sold-out show in Chicago, the band decided to call it a quit. The band members and the inner circle refuse to talk on the record about what happened until decades later. Moving on, set to the soundtrack of the original music from Daisy Jones & the Six is a rock ‘n’ roll tale of how a band imploded at the height of power.
The first episode, ‘‘Track 1: Come and Get It,’’ plays out like viewers feel teleported into the episodes as an extra party with Daisy, dancing to the Dunne brothers’ band and the inner circle. The show’s music and costume accuracy carries the story along, providing depth and character development in an hour. The episode plays out from the narration of the character Daisy Jones, her friend Simone played by Nabiyah Be, Karen Sirko, played by Suki Waterhouse, and Camila, played by Camila Morrone, expressing the female characters are no musician’s muse. The remaining minutes bring the point-of-view of both genders in the music industry.
The next episode, ‘‘Track 2: I’ll Take You,’’ allows viewers to become refreshed on what happened from the first one. Then draws viewers in from the talented cast alongside Netflix, ‘‘The Santa Clarita Diet.’’ Timothy Olyphant and Tom Wright both deliver authenticity to what the music industry was like in the 1970s. The next several minutes of the episode plays out to the sections in the novel, for example, the introduction of Teddy Price, played by Wright, and how Teddy meets Daisy and Billy.
The two episodes so far will have audiences sold on acknowledging the historical background and ideologies through the women and men characters, especially Billy’s narrative bringing attention to the rockstars of the 1970s and the rock ‘n’ roll life. Also, Daisy’s narrative in the second episode is her coming up as an artist strikes familiarity with the pages in the book. The second episode focused more on the relationship between Billy and Camila, played by Camila Morrone, who perform well in scenes that feel a comparison to sections in the novel. The two episodes express empathy and understanding to Billy by the third episode, where viewers get to know more.
The generation who did not come of age during the 1970s, but still, our parents and grandparents sure have. The following episodes of ‘‘Daisy Jones & the Six’’ unquestionably capture the decade well and the characters from the book.
