  • Daniel D'Addario

    It offers some of the more transcendent moments in recent TV memory, but to reach them viewers must slog through some of the dullest.

    Time Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    [The Get Down] has its excellent musical moments and winning performances from a young cast of newcomers but too often it’s an indulgent, rambling bore, particularly in its overlong, almost 90-minute pilot.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    The Get Down exudes the filmmaker’s operatic, lovingly campy spirit, and in small doses there’s a sugary rush to his ecstatic sequences of crowded dance floors, fervent gospel choirs and kids hanging out on the roof of their apartment complex, dreaming of a bigger world. But it’s what’s in-between those standalone moments where The Get Down gets bogged down, the drab storytelling lacking the punch of the show’s period-rich production design and outfits.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    For now, The Get Down is an exercise in glorious imperfection; it’s got the beat, but it’s still grasping for the tone.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    After the premiere the tone and style shift significantly. The storytelling takes on more of the quality of a midlevel sitcom, or the ’70s and ’80s films of Michael Schultz (“Car Wash,” “The Last Dragon”), and the big moments become increasingly maudlin. For worse and for better, The Get Down probably should have just been a Baz Luhrmann film.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    In general, the more The Get Down trusts in its actors to carry the meaning of a moment or scene, the better it is.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joshua Alston

    The Get Down is Netflix’s attempt to ignite romantic nostalgia for another exciting period in musical history, but it’s all hustle and no flow.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Emily Nussbaum

    The pilot (the one episode directed by Luhrmann) is truly terrible. It’s baggy and self-indulgent, alternately confusing and obvious. The next three episodes aren’t great, either, though they have flashes of interest. ... Then, suddenly, there’s a legitimately fun eureka sequence in Episode 5, as Ezekiel and his young crew invent a new art form. In Episode 6, we get, finally, what feels like a fully original series.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    The Get Down is ambitious, and sometimes it’s even fun. But it takes a whirling dervish approach to its visuals and its storytelling in a way that doesn’t do justice to its cast or to the fire behind this important moment in music history.

    Collider Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    This series is still sprawling. Three episodes are not enough to know where it's going or where it will end up. The second and third episodes don't completely wriggle free of some of Luhrmann's whimsy. But all told, there's a better balance between what the famed director apparently wanted to do with tone and hewing more accurately to the times.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    The Get Down is a mess. At times, it's a thrilling mess, at other times a boring one, and there's just barely enough energy in the parts that work to power through the many parts that don't.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Terry Terrones

    New York has an incredible musical history, and even though it can be convoluted at times, The Get Down will take you on a lyrical journey through this great city that's hard to forget.

    Colorado Springs Gazette Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    In the early episodes, all the clatter and the clutter shut out what’s good about the show: Zeke, his devotion to Shao, and his adorable romance with Mylene. The first episode, with a run time of close to an hour and a half, is almost unwatchable. But the show improves from there, sloughing off side characters and gaining momentum.

    Slate Full Review
  • Spencer Kornhaber

    You like the characters but rarely feel any great suspense as contrived obstacles crop up to to complicate but not derail their journeys. ... But for many people, The Get Down may work like a song whose lyrics are mind-numbing but whose beat can’t be denied. Luhrmann’s aesthetic flights of fancy and the show’s fertile premise count for a lot. So does the extremely appealing cast.

    The Atlantic Full Review
  • Brian P. Kelly

    The show is so infectiously fun—in its up-tempo numbers, production design (all high-waisted, polyester pants and vinyl-topped cars) and the historical characters who pop up (from DJ Kool Herc to Ed Koch)--that it rises above its shortcomings. Add to this the shining performances of Ms. Guardiola, Mr. Moore and Mr. Smith and it’s hard not to be charmed.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Michael Slezak

    After three-and-a-half hours of action, The Get Down‘s tone still seems to be a work in progress--not that there’s anything inherently wrong with a “hey, there’s even a kitchen sink!” melding of genres. The good news is that Ezekiel’s poetry and Mylene’s pipes are so undeniable, you’ll relate to the former’s optimistic English teacher (Treme’s luminous Yolonda Ross).

    TVLine Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    You’ll follow the filmmakers to very high peaks, and then find yourself tumbling down into confusion. ... The only reason you won’t get figurative whiplash as the action flips back and forth is that it’s all eased and actually elevated by the music.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Some will grow bored with the style when the substance falters, but others are likely to be enchanted--particularly those who feel it's time hip-hop finally got its own cinematic celebration.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    A grossly uneven but still oft-scintillating mess-terpiece.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Sonia Saraiya

    The show’s pastiche resolves into a gorgeous, fantastical tapestry of music legend and urban history, a reclamation of, and a love letter to, a marginalized community of a certain era, told through the unreliable tools of romance, intuition, and lived experiences. All that can be alienating, but simultaneously, the show feels like vital, radical work.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    George, Luhrmann, and the show’s many collaborators have given us a grand, sometimes overwrought, precise show that captures a specific time in pop history better than it’s ever been shown on television.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    It is unabashedly romantic, sentimental and crazy. At times, it is too much of a good thing, approaching total chaos in its non-stop flurry of activity. And yet it is one of the most consistently ambitious things that has ever aired on television, unafraid of the transformative power of love and art.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    It is a thing by turns, and even simultaneously, ridiculous and sublime, romantic and overwrought and the most genuinely moving precisely when it’s at its corniest.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Isaac Feldberg

    What makes this series sing above all else is its vivid and frequent grasp of the verve and vigor that drives its characters forward, that feeling of sacred, magical significance that thrills and fuels every budding artist and has the power to bring a particular wonder into lives of those without knowledge that it even exists.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    It’s lyrical, vital, upbeat, extreme, sprawling, hackneyed, flawed, and easy to forgive.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    The almost 90-minute pilot, directed by Luhrmann, takes stylistic leaps unlike any other series. Without Luhrmann’s hands-on approach, the subsequent five episodes available Friday lose a bit of their pep, but none of their appeal, as the story tunnels down into the lives of these young people.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Guirgis’s language is authentic and raw, and tethers Luhrman’s gauzy-romanticized world of the South Bronx to the ground. Best of all, the cast--mostly young and mostly newcomers--has figured out how to make this visual and stylistic gumbo gel.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Robert Rorke

    Those too young to remember will be enthralled with the show’s energy and talent--and with Luhrmann’s drive to resurrect a lost world and make it beautiful again.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ben Travers

    Beyond the sterling performances and addictive soundtrack, what carries The Get Down is the sheer passion infused into every element in this immense production.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    An intoxicating mosaic of choreography, wordplay and music. [8-21 Aug 2016, p.16]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    "Bloated," "derivative," and "self-important" all seem fair, as does "scandalously overpriced." If producer-director Baz Luhrmann really, as has been reported, spent $120 million and 10 years to develop this thing, Netflix's accountants should be taken out and shot, and I don't mean with a camera.
