It's a new Netflix show that debut friday set in 70's New York around the time Disco was becoming Hip Hop with an all black and hispanic cast. I am about 4 eps in, I think the pilot was pretty rough beacuse it felt like they were throwing everything and kitchen sink in to it but it's definitely getting better.

I watched all 6 episodes over the weekend. It gets a lot better as it goes but there were still a lot of times where I thought the editing was all over the place. That being said, the show has some seriously kick ass music scenes and getting to watch Grand Master Flash give a tutorial on DJing is pretty great.

Just watched episode 4, and I really like it. Some great music and scenes accompanying it.

I'll agree with earlier sentiments that Shaolin Fantastic really is a terrific name and watching Grandmaster Flash spinning and grinning was awesome!

@mrfizzy: Yeah you always got to expect weird editing in Baz Luhrmann joints.

I want to see it, but I am already following so many other things. I think I have to finish something else first, before embarking on something else.

I really liked it too. It's super corny, but I guess that's just how musicals are. The Machine cover has been stuck in my head ever since >_<

Loved this show so much. Didn't know how to feel after the pilot, but it got so much better as it went along. After Stranger Things, it's the best TV I've watched this year.
