Not the worst thing your kids have seen, but really not kid topics.

For middle teens at least, unless you are okay with your kids watching prolific drug use, learning lots of new swears, and learning new things about sex and poor adult choices. Little kids and tweens won’t get anything out of this anyway, and it’s slow story wise and cinematography-wise for them unless they are just super excited to see something beyond their life comprehension level. It’s okay; definitely lots of borrowed content. Very a star is born into fleetwood mac.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This is a well-produced, well-told tale that's a work of fiction partly inspired by the iconic group Fleetwood Mac. Daisy Jones & The Six combines flashbacks and brief moments from contemporary interviews with the former band members, their former tour manager Rod Reyes (Timony Olyphant), and music writers to tell the story. It chronicles how a local Pittsburgh band headed up by Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) and an aspiring Los Angeles singer Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) were brought together by producer Teddy Price (Tom Wright) and were launched to global success. But the heart of the series is its exploration of the complicated human relationships, mainly (but not limited to) the thorny and deep-rooted connection between Daisy and Billy, and their relationship with Camila, who's a driving force in their lives. All of this is offered within the context of the wild 1970s music scene. Sometimes it feels a little long, and makes you wonder if Daisy Jones & The Six would have been a better movie than a miniseries.
