Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Daisy Jones & The Six is a TV adaption of a popular novel about a (fictional) iconic 1970s music band and the complicated relationships among its members. Expect lots of drinking, cigarette smoking, and pot use. There's also occasional use of cocaine and other drugs; addiction is a major theme. Cursing includes variants of "f--k," while sexual content ranges from brief scenes featuring sexual activity and partial nudity (buttocks) to themes like infidelity. Sexual violence is discussed in one episode. Sam Claflin and Riley Keough star as the band's two lead singers.
Is It Any Good?
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.
