Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that I'm With The Band: Nasty Cherry is a docuseries about the start of an all-female band put together by pop star Charli XCX. There's lots of edgy content, including strong sexual references, cursing, arguing, drinking, and smoking. The overall series promotes the group, and social media outlets like Instagram are referenced.
Is It Any Good?
This edgy but lackluster series chronicles the story about a band that is being manufactured for success in MTV-like reality show style. While some Nasty Cherry members have talent and performance experience, others have minimal training, which creates obvious professional issues. It is perhaps because of this that most of the five-part series focuses on the interactions between the women, which range from mean exchanges to total meltdowns, rather than showcasing their music or the hard work it takes to be successful. As a result, I'm With The Band: Nasty Cherry plays like a melodramatic piece that is designed to promote, and not inspire.
