A new Israeli show titled “Red Band” is telling the story of a group of several aging musicians who get together after 30 years and plan to go out on a comeback tour. Two things make this show very special. First, the band members are all puppets, even though all other characters are regular humans. Secondly, the show isn’t broadcasted on any channel. Instead, it’s available for free via the VOD service of the HOT cable network.
I’ve seen 2 out of the 3 episodes that have been released so far, and I find it amusing and refreshing. Not all the jokes make me laugh, and I’m not interested in most of the characters, but so far it’s been a pleasure.
