From the depths of the Excelsior Ballroom, Dallas McCabe and the Ice Cubes are about to release their own brand of rock n' roll on an unsuspecting world - and their fatal charms on the sistersWritten by
Wow - this series was brilliant! It was so well written and acted that it is definitely the best thing I have seen on TV in ages.
The story, centering on struggling band, "The Ice Cubes" in 1960's Eccles, was so well crafted that I eagerly awaited each installment as the weeks passed by. The last episode in particular was especially nail biting - I couldn't guess how it would all come out in the end. And what truly excellent acting! Each and every actor was just perfect for their role. "The Ice Cubes" music was also great - better than great! I'll be buying the soundtrack first chance I get.
This series would suit any sort of romantic out there. The inclusion of the W.B Yeats poem "He Wishes for the Cloths of Heavan" was a really nice touch.
This is quality television. I cannot recommend it enough.
