13 episodes

An album by album re-watch of Billy Joel's career, with snarky and occasionally informed co-hosts Meg Donahue and Adam Ragusea. This 13-episode miniseries starts with reviews of proto-Joel releases from Billy's boyhood band The Hassles and his infamous organ-metal duo Attila, then proceeds through his solo albums of widely varying quality but uniform Joel-ness. Relive the insufferable sincerity of "Piano Man," the poofy-haired smooth sax lines of "The Stranger," the late-80s cocaine sheen of "Storm Front" and all the (mis)steps between.

Plumbing the Depths of the Shallowest Rocker

Meg and Adam make a thoughtful deep-dive of Billy Joel’s career that’s often funny and insightful. Billy isn’t a deep thinker or a creative artist, but his popularity defies logic and endures, so what does anyone really know anyway?
