Daisy Jones & The Six is a fun and exciting tell-all that gives the world a peek 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 on a tour through the ups and downs of the rock music scene in 1970s LA.

The whole shebang from an origin story, an actual album that immediately surpassed the iTunes and Spotify charts, conflict, groupies, and a messy tour

Billy Dunne takes over his brother's band and brings it to a good start till he wrecks it all with his addiction. Daisy Jones, your typical quirky hippie who has a flair for good lyrics and a voice to die for, joins the group much to Billy's surprise.

Daisy, who is there to sing and have fun, is enthralled by this. But before they know it, they are the largest band in the world, with girls flaunting over them, young boys wanting to be them, and everyone coming to their tour.

Daisy and Billy's incredible stage chemistry is what gets everyone enthralled, unbeknownst to them, since the two constantly undermine Daisy and intimidates her in front of the band, and she keeps threatening him. However, as they split at their peak, at the final concert of their sold-out tour, it appears that there was more than what was revealed.

Each episode is a story in itself as it focuses on the different eras of the band. It includes fast-paced adrenaline-filled concert episodes, gentle 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 the narrative as they either represent Daisy and Billy's problems or Billy's wife, Camila. The rest of the band members – Graham, Karen, Eddie, and Warren – all have their own difficulties.

We meet some really interesting characters who are all well-drawn out, making us feel like we are watching real people go through real things. Eddie is a jerk who has all the right to be a jerk but we just can't help but dislike him. Karen's commitment issues result in her backing away from those who love her.

Simone continues to grow and develops enough power to assert herself as a queer, Black singer. However, there is one flaw we wish to address, it would be Warren the drummer.

Every character has a backstory, conflict, and resolution, including side characters with little screen time, such as Bernie, Simone's friend, and Teddy. So, to give this well-executed episode a 10/10, if only Warren had been given a role to play, whether it was helping Camila because of their Spanish heritage, it would have enhanced the whole script.
