This sounds so spectacularly bad I've now got to see this thing!
Please tell me there's a re-enactment of the above-mentioned Abacab scenario. I imagine Banks and Rutherford discussing their plans, interrupted by a dramatic chord as the door is kicked open, light pouring through, Collins silhouetted in the doorway, then striding in flanked by Padgham and the 'entourage'. He stares at the other two, then dramatically sweeps aside their notes and slams down his own before uttering the aforementioned pronouncement. Zoom in on the others' shocked faces!
As MoonlitKnight said, you're actually not too far off. Actors with terrible wigs and mustaches. And that one scene was pretty much "Tony", "Mike", and "Phil" standing around while "Hugh" stood in the doorway. Just painful.
Not far off lol. Worst part is I was visiting my 83 year old father. I mentioned this doc about my favorite band was on and I wouldn’t mind watching it. He said “sure” and we both regretted it. I kept telling him “this isn’t their music playing in the background. Their music is much better.” When the show finished he muttered “Thank God that’s over” and turned on the news lol.
Exactly! I turned it on while my wife was in the room, and while I knew she wasn't really paying attention, I felt the need to keep defending my fandom of this band that was being portrayed in this really schlocky way. She knew it was terrible, but I sort of felt the need to apologize for it anyway.
