The Get Down "Darkness Is Your Candle" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Ever since the series was announced, The Get Down has described itself as tracing the birth of hip-hop, punk, and disco. So far, the show has leaned heavily on the first third of that equation, mostly because, in the summer of 1977, disco and punk were considerably further along in their respective origin stories. As such, punk hasn’t even been mentioned on the series yet, and disco has enjoyed a superficial depiction of its popularity (then at its peak) at settings like Les Inferno and the after-school hangout of the beauty shop. We don’t (and won’t) see its genesis because it already happened.

The story is too old to be commented.
