Audience Reviews for Tales From the Tour Bus: Season 1

    I have been a Mike Judge fan from the first episode of King of the Hill. His has a unconventional but relatable sense of humor that appeals to the everyday man. When I discovered his documentary style series Tales from the Tour Bus I had only see a short trailer and I immediately purchased both seasons. I binged watched those 16 episodes from beginning to end during a long joyous marathon weekend. Watched beginning to end TWICE! Growing up with parents that were Country music fans I appreciated and became fascinated as Judge narrated and crafted the animated caricatures that told the individual stories in a fashion that perfectly communicated the INSANE life stories of some of the biggest country music pioneers. Second season features some of my personal childhood musical hero's featuring Funk King George Clinton and the various members of the Funk-a-delics. Also features James Brown, Rick James, Prince and Morris Day! Except for James Brown I was a enthusiastic fan of them all in the late 70's-80's. To have their true behind the scene antics told first hand was pure geek nirvana. It's funny. It's crazy. It's real. It's a good watch!

    Great show. Turning me into a classic country music fan.

    If you haven't watched this, you should. When you take the utter ridiculousness and the pure outrageousness of the stories, couple them with the complete nonchalance of the interviewees, and then drop Mike Judge's dry delivery and wit on top of it all, you get a winner.

    One of Mike Judge's best pieces of work to date. LOVED IT. 10 stars. My 80 year old father even got a kick out of it.

    Please let there be a second season!

    Great to see some of these old forgotten legends with great stories revived in an incredibly well done animated series. I'm a big fan already
  • Oct 30, 2017
    Fantastic! I can't wait for each new episode!
  • Oct 27, 2017
    As an avid fan of classic country music, some of what's on display here is common knowledge, some. That said, there is much to amaze, shock and amuse. How these people survived past their forties is flabbergasting. Great storytelling.

    Great show, offering a unique insight into some of these legends that I didn't know about
