Daisy Jones and the Six: A Critical Review of the Prime Video Show
Daisy Jones and the Six, a Prime Video show based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel, follows the story of a Fleetwood Mac-like band that comes together in the ’70s. The band members quickly become a sensation, but despite its hype, the show falls short of its aspirations, feeling too fake and formulaic.
A Try-Hard Drama That Doesn’t Deliver On Its Own Hype
The show starts with a rock doc framing device where the band members keep telling the audience how they are on top of the world. However, the show confuses this verbalization for legitimacy, making it come off as a try-hard drama that never reaches the level of greatness it aspires to.
