Extremely solid series. Well cast, well-written and the brother playing Malcolm X is exceptionally on-point. Diggin' a lot of the underlying historical narratives as well. I've enjoyed binge watching this one.
736738, i think it sucks|

looks like law & order episodes using key figures in Black History
736746, I’m liking it a lot|

Yeah, the Malcolm part is impressive.

If the writing was even half as good as the actors and premise, this show might be something special. Instead its painfully mediocre
736761, I tried |

the hip hop soundtrack was a terrible fucking look and sank it pretty much right of the gate.
the writing was subpar too
Damn shame, my uncle used to tell me about Bumpy and about Malcolm and to see that brought to the screen was so exciting. But yeah, I'm good.
736797, yeah the soundtrack is super annoying |

Peaky blinders might be the only show I've seen that's been able to pull off contemporary music in a period piece but here it's just distracting and cringey. Especially since theres so much amazing music from this era. Instead it seems like they turn the last scene from each ep into a music video
736802, yeah man, how you have a show with Malcolm and the songs|
