Why you NEED to watch ‘Daisy Jones and the Six’

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at TCU chapter.

There are a few things I love in life the most, Taylor Swift, lattes, and Sam Claflin in a book-to movie adaptation. From the Hunger Games to Love, Rosie, the man has been the star in these films. But undeniably one of his best ones yet is Daisy Jones and the Six

If I’m being honest, I wasn’t expecting Daisy Jones and the Six to be that great of a show, I very much struggled reading the book with how it was formatted. Of course, we powered through since we are Taylor Jenkins Reid lovers, but I wasn’t all that excited for the show. Then I saw Sam Claflin was cast, and it was a no-brainer. This was a show I needed to watch.

There are a million reasons why you need to watch this, not just for the cast (even though they are absolutely amazing). Firstly, just the dedication that went into this show. All the cast members learned to play their own instruments, and sing for this show. This wasn’t just an overnight thing either, they practiced for two years. If that is not dedication, I really don’t know what is. 

Not only this, but they released multiple albums. There is the overall album that is featured on the show, and other individual ones based on each episode. When my Spotify Wrapped is a fictional band, you know why. The music is just amazing, Riley Keough is breathtaking, and Sam Claflin isn’t too bad himself. It has been on repeat for me for the last month. Plus, with their rumour of a tour, we need to be prepared to live our best 70s outdoor concerts dreams. 

We can’t not mention the amazing fits in the show. The ladies of Daisy Jones really ate it up the whole time. They made me want to sprint to Free People and buy up their whole collection immediately. I was asked the other day what time period I would want to live in, and I couldn’t answer right away, but after watching this show I can immediately tell you the 70s with just their looks alone. 

The point is, watching Daisy Jones and the Six is a must. Everything about it is absolutely phenomenal. The acting, the looks, the music, and the ending (which made me cry). You have to put it on your watch list immediately, and then maybe we will be having some pretty similar spotify wraps at the end of it.
