User Reviews

 
This isn't a comedy, its a period drama.....and a damn good one!
5 July 2017 | by cjkatworkSee all my reviews

Its not Vinyl. There are no similarities to that show other than it's set in the 70s. Its pretty clear that most of the reviews here are from people that didn't bother to watch a full episode.

This show has solid writing, good character development, and great acting. Melissa Leo, Erik Griffin and Clark Duke are standouts.

This show is different from 99% of the junk being pumped out on the regular these days. It deserves a chance. Leave your hatred for the baby boomers at the door and you might end up having a good time.
