UPDATE - 6/15@10:04AM: The episode is now generally available for watching (for subscribers) wherever Paramount Plus is available. One of the more noteworthy scenes involved a conversation that Dave, Virginia and his daughter Violet were having around the dinner table about 15 minutes into the show. Dave is discussing his conversation with Geddy and his Mom, and her incredible Holocaust survival story, and says the following:

... It was funny for me to sit with Geddy and his Mom because ... he changed my life. Rush really changed my life. I loved music. I loved singing in the car to AM radio. But I never *listened* to the drums until I heard Rush. As we were sitting with Geddy and his Mom, I was thinking ... if it weren't for her I might not be a drummer ...
