CGiii Comment

Cancelled...this is what you call an exercise in damage limitation, for the careers of everyone involved, for the whole of Hollywood and [particularly] the music industry itself! What a shabby lot they appear to be...according to this.

It may have looked good on paper...but, this troubled production had all the hallmarks of a narcissistic disaster...The [ridiculously named] Weekend just can't act!

In truth, it's not as bad as 'they' say it is, having said's not good either - again, due to The [ridiculously named] Weekend's severe lack of charisma and foresight. Where would have this story gone after episode 5? Absolutely nowhere. It would have just repeated it's power dynamic into [more convincing] higher heels!

Rightly cancelled and it wouldn't be a surprise if a few expensive copyright infringements were served...more often than not, the score sounded like Pink Floyd entire back catalogue. Nice though!

Most musicians should not act. Here's the proof. This is what happens when the ego takes over.


The(ir) Blurb...

"We all crave things that aren't good for us. (Season 1)"
