You are the 2nd person that's said the first few episodes are not good but it does get better and also that Chrissie Hynde character is good.
Is Siouxsie in it?
Yes. The actress who plays her looks the part and features in quite a few scenes in a couple of episodes but does not have a large speaking role.

As for the earlier episodes, the worst one focuses on ‘Pauline’ who, of course, inspired the song ‘Bodies’. Not having read Jones’s autobiography, I don’t know whether the series plays fast and loose with what actually went on but it was an execrable piece of drama that nearly made me give up on the whole series.

Thankfully, things got better after that.

One episode to go.

Glen Matlock on this morning. Says it is basically a work of fiction using the Sex Pistols characters. Also said Steve Jones book was a work of fiction or he had a poor memory

Has anyone watched the Netflix documentary about Johnny Moped?

Always liked his monologue on the Live at the Roxy album.

Now finished Pistol (it's just about worth seeing) and am looking for something else to see.

Have also never watched Derek Jarman's Jubilee. Is that any good?
