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.
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
