Critics Consensus

Sun Records accurately captures the era and excitement of the birth of rock n' roll, but its disparate storylines struggle to maintain a narrative rhythm.

    The show is about the music not some over produced soundtrack like a Jeff Bridges movie just clean simple and authentic with amazing guitars as eye candy.

    In a day and age where we are bombarded with a bunch of CSI and medical type shows Sun Records is unique. It is a historical take with some fictional elements thrown in to make for an entertaining show. I hope we get many more seasons to come. I recommend anyone who wants to see something new or just wants to be entertained to check out this show. Is good for people of all ages. The show is about Sam Phillips the owner of Sun Records and the journey of the icons who would eventually find their way there.
