  • Roadies (Showtime): Series Premiere. The series follows the lives of those behind the scenes of the Staton-House Band tour that put the show together. Things start out with the intro of the crew and them dealing with a British financial advisor that is there to fix the tour’s finances. Plays again later. Was kind of looking forward to this one, as the cast looked good, fronted by Carla Gugino and Luke Wilson. But, hadn’t heard much good about it until my @TVtimesThree cohost @mytakeontv recommended it on Ep.328. So, went into to it with mild expectations. I’m not really a big music guy, so I found it a bit precious how each character talks about why they do what they do. It also opens with a “Hey, look we’re on premium cable!” scene, which is a pet peeve of mine. Overall, I found it to be okay and somewhat interesting in places, but ultimately not one I’ll probably be continuing with. Will you be checking this one out tonight?
