A celebrated military contractor returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs and reconnects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watch-dog assigned to him.
A pampered Women's Studies major, forced to leave college when her mother dies, must deal with the father she just met, survive in the foulmouthed, nicotine-fueled world of the hard-rock roadie, and find family where she least expects it.
For years I have read and followed IMDb and pondered on what would inspire me to write a review and ... Well here it is.
I appreciate I am not and have never been associated with a rock band so if this is factually accurate , I have no idea. However I do enjoy well written TV.
The script is sharp and gives the whole ensemble a chance to shine. It reminds me of The West Wing but for rock bands rather than politicians and civil servants. It is both light in tone but always hits the little emotional note somewhere during each episode. You really care about the characters.
The music throughout the programme as you would expect from Cameron Crowe is diverse and excellent. I have been "shazaming" like crazy and downloading music all over the place.
You can tell CROWE has a past in musical journalism and he uses it to great effect.
A fun , light , entertaining show and I am already depressed that I will have to wait for season 2 and season 1 hasn't ended yet.
Please get on Amazon prime and watch it and rate it so they make another season.
