It’s back! The Get Down is back! Sure, we had to wait for the length of one human reproductive cycle for that to happen, but boy, it’s worth it; episodes seven and eight of season one* are stellar, and let me tell you in advance that they generally get better from here (if a bit messier). The best recommendation of the second half of the season thus far is its balance. As with the first half, there’s a ton going on here, but each plot detail is handled more deftly than you might be accustomed to at this point in the show’s lifespan. But don’t take my word for it. Take my word for it, at Paste Magazine.
