Anyone watching The Get Down? It's got a budget of 120,000,000. It's a mini series with 6 episodes airing this year and six next. I watched the first episode directed by Baz Luhrmann who also produces (not my favourite director but he makes the show male/female friendly). It's especially great if you have an interest in Hip Hop culture or you like Rap and want a little insight to it's origins. So far we've seen Cowboy of The Furious 5, Grandmaster Flash and there's a whole bunch of graffiti writers in it.
It's kind of set at the end of the era of the 'The Warriors' where street gangs were prominent in and almost every block had it's own gang and coming closer to the end of the Disco-era. At the end of that era Hip Hop culture emerged and instead of gangs killing each other like they used to they battled as MC's and "fought" on the dance-floor, breakdancing while Grandmaster Flash cut and scratched. It follows Furious 4 + 1, the first rappers to be signed.
Sidenote: As we're on a GTA forum, I always wanted Rockstar to set a GTA during this era. Not like this show focuses but a darker, grittier, street brawling game in New York during the late 70's/early 80's.
There's a kind of annoying remix of this track on the ads for it....
Also, if you are a fan of that era and want to see a documentary about the gangs in the Bronx.. check out Rubble Kings.. You'll see some gangs most the The War Lords in The Get Down
