‘Daisy Jones & the Six Review

Adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling 2019 novel of the same name, “Daisy Jones & The Six” uses the tempestuous creative and personal dynamics within the band Fleetwood Mac to tell its own story of a ‘70s band that burned out instead of fading away. They were massive. Why did they break up so quickly? The series has a gorgeous cast of young talents, excellent period detail, and a rich source. But unfortunately, the show succumbs to the same problem as so many streaming series—sagging when it needs to narratively build momentum. Director James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now”) establishes a wonderful set for the band in the first few episodes, but the show feels too content to repeat itself, feeling more and more like a cover of a cover.

The first three episodes of “Daisy Jones & the Six” are now playing on Prime Video.
