News & Interviews for Sun Records: Season 1
More soap opera than documentary, but there's still a whole lotta shakin' goin' on in this tale of the birth of rock and roll.
Repetitious and clumsy as it lurches from one disparate subplot to another, Sun Records is such a slow burn it's kind of a fizzle.
When it comes to Sun Records, the hook is there, but it can't sustain the beat.
While the marital infidelity subplot seems unnecessary, it seems like the series has a lot going for it.
It's more a sampler of Early Scenes from Great Lives than a deep or driven narrative. That is also its strength, in a way - the more casual the material, the more naturally it plays. The more serious things get, the more the writing resorts to cliché.
