Trivia

In episode 4, when Gabs and Charlie are waiting for him to go on stage, Charlie tells Gabs to stay in the dressing room and she says "why don't you just chain me to a radiator and be done with it". This is a reference to Elba's other show, Luther, when he twice handcuffed one of his perps to a radiator to prevent him from escaping. See more »

We watched the first few episodes last night, even though we totally cannot relate to what the show calls a DJ, or what they refer to as music. The characters are real and relatable (not a word, is it?) and funny. The show itself is entertaining. The precocious Gabs is very good. The scenes move, and even though we don't know a lot of the references, the people remain human, and that is what makes this work. I knew we wanted to see this just because of Mr. Elba, and we were so happily surprised to see him do something so light, so well. Piper Perabo was a pleasant surprise, especially for my wife, who really liked "Covert Affairs." We will finish binging the rest of this first season ASAP, and hope for more.
