DAISY JONES AND THE SIX premiered two episodes this week. One dealt with more love life information about Daisy, and the other showcased the drug-fueled first album tour with the band. The writers took us full circle in the life of a rock and roll musician.
The installments didn’t have as much interviewing style of filming. It mostly just shared the story containing so much happiness, love, lust and then dropped viewers on their asses in total despair and sadness. Whew…a roller coaster ride for sure. Again, I iterate, what a lonely, intense life. In our imagination, a rock band with the number three and number nine songs on the charts should have a different journey. But things don’t work out as planned whenever you add an immense quantity of hard-core drugs into the mix. Sometimes a shower scene fighting for a comeback is necessary. It breaks my heart to see such talent falling through the drain.
Kudos again to Daisy (Riley Keough), Simone (Nabiyah Be), and Billy’s (Sam Claflin) amazing singing. Raw, honest, and mesmerizing. So well created for audiences to love and hate. I also must mention Rod (Timothy Olyphant). He is hardly visually recognizable. Yet because of his talent and speaking voice, you would know him anywhere. Great performance. These two chapters will change the direction of the band once again. Their lives are entwined and locked. Now, I fear for all of them and cannot wait for next week’s finale.
DAISY JONES AND THE SIX is excellent tv entertainment about a lost decade for many due to the ravages of drugs and alcohol. It is like watching the Titanic go down. You want to help. You want to save them. And you can’t look away until the bitter end. It is available to stream on Prime Video.
