Should 'The Get Down' be given a second chance?
Here's the synopsis of "The Get Down," per IDMB.
A ragtag group of teenagers run wild in the streets of the Bronx in the late 1970s.
Season one was broken up into two halves. The first garnered acclaim, but the second half was referred to as "The Shut Down," due to the many production issues. Watch the trailer to the second half of season one below, and let us know by voting if you feel like Netflix can make the series work moving forward.
Fans are heartbroken. Netflix, please address the production issues and give "The Get Down" a second chance. 😭
THE GET DOWN IS A GOOD QUALITY SHOW WITH MUSIC, BLACK/LATINO REP, LGTB REP AND AMAZING CHARACTERS WITH BOPS FOR DAYS. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE— 👽🎩 (@shyrlyrodriguez) May 25, 2017
