Storyline

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York City - broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped -- dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them - except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco -- told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world...forever.

beautiful, poetic, exciting
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Baz Luhrmann's work. I love his creative, colorful and unique styles. I didn't know The Get Down was his work until i finished the show and looked it up and it made total sense that it was his work. I loved this show, by far one of my favorite Netflix series. The young men and women they chose for the cast do an excellent job acting and seemed to come so natural to them.There is also a few actors we have seen before in some of our favorite shows, which was very cool to see. It is very poetic & emotional and connecting with the characters is really easy.The story line is fun, exciting, edgy and easy to follow with a lot of historical fiction included.
