I don't really care about Annie either. I'd much rather we'd have gotten to check in with Sonny instead, although his arc wrapped up pretty nicely. It was however great to see LP again, didn't think they'd have time to squeeze him in.
Resurrecting this thread back from the dead to say we've been watching this from start to finish for the first time I've over the past few months.
Absolutely loved it Big lovers of music, so it was so nice to watch something which totally revolves around it. The strawberry floating jazz bits though, bloody awful If I couldn't stand jazz before, those bits did nothing to change my mind.
Antoine What a toe rag. Loved his training of the band bits. John Goodman LaDonna She had a rough old time throughout. What an ass kicker. Annie, Jesus that was a drawn out and tedious storyline. Funny to see her asserting herself in the studio right at the end though. Sunny, what a bellend. Big chief Probably my favourite character, the miserable bastard Terry, I was always worried he'd be bumped off so it was great he managed to survive it. Toni - place your bets how many times she'll either out on or take off her glasses in a single scene. I'm sure there's a drinking game in there somewhere. Janet, interesting in small doses, but got waaaaay too much story time Davis What a total and utter plonker. His heart was usually in the right place though.
We really want to go to new Orleans now, so are planning to do a few days there as part of a bigger trip some day.
