The show just debuted this weekend.

It's a Drama based on the Bronx NY in the late-70s. It has a music-centric storyline that shows the main characters experiencing the peak and decline of Disco and the rise of Hip-hop. A young Grandmaster Flash appears in several episodes.

The production is very cinematic and the acting pretty solid. I'm pretty impressed so far.

Has anyone else checked this show out?

Haven't yet, but will for sure.  Seems pretty interesting.

The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.
