Finished the first season... very good! I've read comments on various review sites about many of the orchestra details are wrong or wildly implausible, but I guess that's the curse of being expert of any field discussed in a specific movie or series, so that didn't really bother me. The episodes always feel too short, they leave you wanting more!
Rodrigo is an hell of a character, he's completely hammered, the whole time, I can't remember if he ever says something acting and talking like a normal person
I really like him as a character, but as a "real" person in that fictional universe, I'm not so sure he would be that loved - sure, here and there he's shown doing things that endear him to the orchestra, but he's such a wild and unpredictable card that people would quickly be fed up with him. I think of him like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, wonderful characters to watch, but horrible to have around and deal with if they were real persons.
