Sun Records: Season 1 Reviews

March 7, 2017
Sun Records is just too damn much fun to watch to get hung up in the details. The stories are magnetic, and so are the performances.

This period drama is more entertaining than authentic.

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 clich.

Thankfully, there's nothing stagy-looking about the production itself; Sun doesn't skimp on period detail and dusty, warm-toned atmosphere.

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.

Sun Records, the show, doesn't quite tap into the raw power of rock and roll - or blues, or rockabilly, or R&B.

With so many stories to tell, Sun Records loses focus.
