Don't Fight It: 'Daisy Jones and the Six' Is an Addictive TV Show

Based on Taylor Jenkins Reed’s 2019 bestselling book starring successful film queen Reese Witherspoon Executive Producer, and Produced for Free – Aside from the marketing campaign, critics’ response to the show has remained… tepid. “Lack of bite,” says Empire. “Not cool,” said the Times of London

Admittedly, I’ll probably always love this show – and not just because Jones perfectly embodies my dream aesthetic in a floppy hat and wool coat about . I read it in lockdown, I’m a Fleetwood Mac fan, and no amount of nepo-baby talk can stop me from being fascinated by the fact that Keough is Elvis’ real granddaughter.

but even if I don’t need Daisy Jones just mindlessly watching, somewhere around episode 3, with Memories of the dreaded wig in the opening scene faded, and I realized the show had (honestly, very appealingly) hooked me. I texted a friend I knew was watching too. “I’m starting to think that Leo’s super hot model ex is actually a really good actress??” she immediately replied. “I’m playing the soundtrack in my car right now??”
