The Get Down Part II

Rejoice, rejoice the long and much anticipated wait, at least for me, of The Get Down Part II​ is now over! For those of you that may be unfamiliar, The Get Down is a Netflix original directed by the Oscar nominated Baz Luhrmann. Set in the Bronx, New York in 1977 the series follows Ezekiel Figuero a teenager with an incredible lyrical ability struggling to fit in and infatuated with Mylene Cruz, the neighborhood angel. 

The Get Down
After watching season one, or Part I as Netflix is marketing it, I found myself in love with the series, the characters, the setting, and more! Baz Luhrmann is one of my favorite directors, so I might be slightly biased. I have watched The Great Gatsby, Romeo and Juliet, and Moulin Rouge all projects that he has directed. To see Luhrmann’s style and aesthetic brought to a television series has been amazing. Needless to say I am very excited to login to Netflix today and check out Part II of The Get Down
