Daisy Jones & The Six is a fun and exciting tell-all that gives the world a look at the fictional rock band Daisy Jones & The Six that makes us wish it was real. With a starry cast including the likes of Sam Claflin, Riley Keough and Suki Waterhouse, they take us through the ups and downs of the rock music scene in 70s LA.

We get the whole shebang from an origin story, an actual album that immediately hit the iTunes and Spotify charts, conflict, the drugs and alcohol abuse, groupies and a messy tour. The show allowed us to watch the band grow from a garage band to a struggling LA band to one of the biggest bands in USA making all viewers a fan of this fictional group of people.

We have Billy Dunne who takes over his brother’s band and with his charms and talent gets it to a good place till he ruins it all with his addiction. In comes Daisy Jones, your typical quirky hippie who has a nose for good lyrics and a voice to die for. Their producer, Teddy decides to put them together much to Billy’s chagrin who is a perfectionist and a control freak.

Of course, this all just amuses Daisy who is there to sing and have fun. But before they know it, they are the biggest band with girls fawning over them, young boys wanting to be them and everyone flocking to their tour.

Along with their relatable songs, it is Daisy and Billy’s unbelievable chemistry on stage that has everyone shipping them, unbeknownst to them that the two hate each other’s guts after Billy constantly puts Daisy down and undermines her in front of the band and she keeps goading him. But as they break up at their peak, at the final show of their sold-out tour, it seems that there was more than what the public was told.

Each episode is a story in itself as it focuses on the different eras of the band. It takes on the structure of the eras such as the fast-paced adrenaline-filled episodes of concerts, mellow episodes when they take a break or a rollercoaster of emotions when Billy and Daisy are spiraling due to drug and alcohol abuse.

Even the songs add to each story as they either symbolize the relationship between Daisy and Billy, their problems or Billy’s wife, Camila. Meanwhile, the rest of the band members – Graham, Karen, Eddie and Warren along with Camila have their own troubles. While it may seem that only Billy and Daisy are responsible for the band’s disbandment, the rest also make choices that take them all down the same road of heartbreak.

Along with their friends and well-wishers such as Teddie and Simone, we get some really interesting characters, all well-etched out, making us feel like we are watching real people go through real things. There is Eddie, a jerk who has all the right to be a jerk but we just can’t help but dislike him. Karen and her commitment issues lead to her backing away from people who love her.

Meanwhile, Simone takes their help to grow and finally gets enough power to have her voice heard as a queer, Black singer. However, if there is one flaw we’d like to fix, it would be Warren the drummer who didn’t have much of a say in the story.

Every character gets a back story, conflict and resolution, including side characters with limited screen time such as Bernie, Simone’s friend and Teddy. So, to make this well-executed show a 10/10, if only Warren had been given a role to play whether it was bonding with Camila due to their Spanish heritage or supporting Eddie, it would have enhanced the whole script.
