Hi Dan

I also enjoyed that show.

Relatively well cast, decent portrayal of events, very good music recreations.

It was probably too raunchy for middle America, but not hip enough for others, resulting in too small an audience for renewal.

I thought it succeeded in explaining what has perplexed many fans for 60 plus years.

Namely, the economics of a small record label/recording studio, and why Sam Phillips sold Elvis' contract to RCA.
