'The Get Down' Review

Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down streams on Netflix starting tomorrow. People know that it's been a troubled production, but is the show any good? I've seen the first three episodes, and thus far I think it's a soap opera-y mess. When the show traces the early days of hip-hop in New York City, it can be fun. But too much of the time, the series tries to be something else. My review is up at The Wrap.
