Daisy Jones & The Six isn’t a perfect series by any means, the romance subplots seem generic and often drags at times, however, the series has enough enjoyable moments to lock in viewers and keep them there until the end. Considering the show surrounds the making of a band, the music and soundtrack throughout each episode is catchy, moves the plot along well, and keeps the audience engaged and entertained. Some of the soundtrack songs include some 1970s classics, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, and Roxy Music.
Daisy Jones & The Six has a solid cast, all of whom give strong and authentic performances, particularly the two leads, Riley Keough and Sam Claflin, who play Daisy and Billy, respectively. Keough and Claflin have terrific chemistry together onscreen, especially in scenes that include the two being on stage together performing. The romance is the central focus of the series, and the intriguing characters, each dealing with their own problems and demons, are part of the main attraction for viewers. The rest of the cast does a terrific job but is sometimes forgettable next to the two leads, who always demand the spotlight when onscreen.
Daisy Jones & The Six hit the 1970s nostalgia on the head. As mentioned above, the music of the time is mixed throughout the show and aids in transporting viewers to the decade. The show format may remind audiences of the MTV show “Making of the Band” and almost feel like a documentary, as the series shows clips from each band member being interviewed in present-day, recalling their time in the band. These interview clips are intertwined with the story as it takes place in the 1970s, serve as a bit of narration to the story, and aid in moving the plot along. The format is clever and gives a fresh take on a genre that is saturated with such content.
