If you liked Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous", you will almost certainly like this show.
Be aware, it's a slow starter...The first couple of weeks as we are getting to know the characters, it was not great. I didn't even know if I was going to keep watching. It certainly grows on you though. Now, I can't get enough of it.
During the last season of "Grey's Anatomy" (A show I was sucked into by my wife right from episode 1), it occurred to me that I was watching a show packed full of truly unlikable people, not a single one of which would I ever want to have as a friend in real life.
That is not a problem with this show. I just finished episode 8, and I so wanted to be right there on that bus with these impossibly likable characters.
Yes, it's a little sappy and sentimental, and sure, anybody who has worked in the entertainment industry will be able to easily point out all manner of issues.
Who cares? It's not a documentary, it's just entertainment.
Bonus points to the show for the celebrity cameo appearances and some fun back room/sound check style performances by real artists.
