Storyline

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York City - broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped -- dying. 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. Written by Netflix

Genius!
31 August 2016 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Let's start by saying I am a 54 year old white woman with a 15 year old son and we both LOVE this show - go figure! We just finished watching the final episode of this season and can not wait until the next season. The 70s, the Bronx, the clothes (Huckapoo shirts - I didn't think anyone remembered those but they were quintessential garments back then). What's not to love - the editing, the music, the story and characters are all genius. Baz Luhrman has done it again. Such nostalgia presented in a modern way. Love the news footage - I'm guessing some of it is authentic?!? I highly recommend this show. Have fun!
