Screener Squad: The Eddy

The Eddy Series Review


Netflix, Damien Chazelle, and Harry Potter & the Cursed Child author Jack Thorne (uh oh) come together to bring you a slice of the Parisian jazz scene in The Eddy. Revolving around the eponymous nightclub, the story deals with Elliott (Andre Holland) and the members of his band struggling to keep their small club afloat. However, they cross paths with a group of Serbian mobsters who threaten their club after his business partner Farid (Tahar Rahim) gets involved in some shady deals. Can they find a way to get out of their predicament? Will you stay awake long enough to care? That was one of the many problems Justin, Nathan, and Alex had watching this miniseries. Hear them lament about what a missed opportunity this show was right here!
