The Get Down

Fridays, 3:00 AM ET on Netflix

60 minutes

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.

Get beyond the first episode (which is very, very Baz Luhrmann) and you just might get hooked. This is a big, colorful series with a sprawling cast of veterans and newcomers. It's about the rise of hip-hop (executive producer Nas and adviser Grandmaster Flash are around to keep things real), but as with any Luhrmann project, it's also a love story — a star-crossed love story between an aspiring rapper and disco singer.

This is a semi-fantasy genesis story through rose coloured spectacles...and it works perfectly! The Get Down tells the story of artistic genesis set in a very creative time & place in human history, that being New York in the late 70s/early 80s. Before Hip-Hop became what we know today, rap, DJing, break dancing and street art/graffiti were all intricately linked. The Get Down tells the story of their creation/evolution in a wonderful mix of storytelling, music & aesthetic. There's not much more to say, it's all very entertaining and nostalgic.
