The story needs more help than Kravitz can give it, leaning on a fairly simple and uninteresting sort-of-love-triangle.

The result is a show which is sometimes grating yet sneakily beguiling, in the way that beautiful, curated messiness can be.

I get that the main character is afraid to commit, but her show seems afraid to commit, too... Thanks to Kravitz's performance, I still cared tremendously about Rob and her well being.

So for a series that so often operates in tandem with the music playing in the background, "High Fidelity" has a consistent rhythm that's flexible enough to bend with the demands of each passing episode.

It does spur some insightful ruminations around how much emotional weight we place on music and any adopted cynical stances one might around what is cool and allowed and what is verboten.

High Fidelity makes great use of Zoe Kravitz and a slew of talented actors while using music geekery to weave together a truly authentic story of heartbreak and arrested development.

Just as the ultra-magnetic Kravitz has sizzling chemistry with Ben-Adir, she has a warm, realistic camaraderie with Randolph and Holmes.
