Little homie is the most believable non-LA nigga to play an LA nigga.

The show itself is hella basic tho. I knew where the whole season was going fifteen minutes into the pilot.

I asked my pops if he watched that shit. He was like, “Yeah, in 1983. I don’t need to see the reruns.”

-30-
You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

he does it good, but too good lol

it's kind of a second tier show but I enjoy it. The CIA stuff has been good this season. I think it has improved overall.

I have issues with some of the details though. The graffiti, and the cholos look like something out of a Mad TV sketch. There are literally thousands of people in LA who could have helped with this.

That surprises me, because as soon as Contra dude got wrote off I was done with the CIA side. White cop shit ruined Narcos for me, and it ruined Snowfall for me too.

They went to the beach and his buddy said something like "I thought you were gonna get us jumped by some Shorelines". I mean, they're purposely avoiding using real neighborhoods, so I guess its safe since there are probably 3 shorlines left who consider themselves active and none of them actually live in venice.

I'm talking about the bum ass CIA dude, the Israeli supplier, the uncle who sells weed, the luchador who is a cartel grunt.

You saw how all the puzzle pieces fit together before the first commercial break. If you got a plot that predictable you gotta slow down and do your character work, but this show don't do all that. It just lays everything out real plain.

..could be better.

the cast is phenomenal.

the personal development of each character has been solid so far, but main storyline is lacking depth.

its early and, as you can see, i'm still tuned in.

I want more stories about black people that rely on the hood, slavery, or the civil rights era.

More stories about the crack epidemic does nothing to help mend the actual trauma of the real events.

I know I know...issa tv show.

What you said kinda reminds me of how Mexico always has these cartel and immigrant stories now.

Non-white cultures tend to get boxed into a handful of stories and it sucks because people within those cultures know that the other stories exist but are not being told.

In response to Reply # 0

my origin story began in south central LA circa 1984-1992, on one hand, watching the show takes me back to that time, on the other hand it has the same problem biopics have where they take something cool that you like and somehow make it uncool.

For me I have a hard time keeping up with the story arc because it seems to go from believable to out there and back to believable to a point where it feels like it wants to be gritty realism while also wanting to be some larger-than-life-story

that said...I've been having a start-stop-start pattern with the show over the past 2 years.
