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.

How they handle gangs period is hella Dangerous Minds. Like what hood is any of them niggas even from? It's all very generic.

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.

It’s a great show. Can’t believe people are tired of the first story that actually touches on the true reason for the crack epidemic.

Great story telling that shows how filthy our government is

As for Snowfall tho, I feel like this is the only one that matters, because it speaks to the involvement of the American Government in the crack epidemic. Not just casually mentioning it, but detailing it as part of the show. I personally don't think any such show should be done without thoroughly addressing that.

That said, I ended up enjoying Power too lol. Snowfall is a cut above for the above-mentioned reason tho. The only "drug slangin' black folk" show or movie that I'd recommend to everyone.

In response to Reply # 0
Tue Sep-10-19 09:41 AM by double negative

  

          

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.

Ruthless Franklin is the best character on the show. Nice Guy Diplomat Franklin is THEE WORST.people.

Ain’t no way Manboy is that bad if a shot. I think they’re trying to squeeze Franklin.

Both crack and religion gave Melody the same crazy eyes.

Monk from the Wire been eating. I mean i guess we all have but i wasn't sure that was him.

Why was Rob from the valley part of the ambush/shoot out? He's never given any indication he's about that sort of thing. I mean, even for Jammin Jerome, you can see killing ain't really his thing. he was pretty shook.

I thought that whole bottoms shoot out sequence with ManBoy vs Stacy last season was part of Franklin's coma dream.

It's good to have this show back

Ha! I knew that was him. I just couldn't remember his character's name for whatever reason. He was just "the dumb asshole who shot Cutty." I did like that according to Lurp, Saint's muscle is going to be shooters from Oakland.

Yeah, that took me aback. Made even less sense than Saint being there, honestly. You'd think they'd have someone more official.

>I thought that whole bottoms shoot out sequence with ManBoy vs

I'd remembered that part was real. I can't even remeber though, he they suggested that Man Boy and Stacy were beefing before that final episode?

>It's good to have this show back

Me too. Man, backing Man Boy over Skully was such the wrong play. Louie was 100% right. Man Boy's looking to take over, and eyeing Saint like he's weak. Skully's shermed-out ass is going to fuck with them all season. They should have taken out Man Boy and offered Leon his territory as a peace offering.

I assume things look bad for Leon now, but he'll rebound. He's probably going to team with Man Boy against Saint by mid-season.

Yeah Saint didn't have much business there either but I could see why he would want to be. One just as a 'hands on' leader, and also because it was too important a thing to fuck up, which you can see he couldn't prevent by being there anyway.

I believe they did suggest the beef, but the sequence seems dream like. I suppose its the version that plays out in Franklin's head once it was relayed to him by Jerome and others as some surreal shit.

Yeah, Louie was 100% right about Man Boy, I was in camp obvious that Skully gotta go, and I didn't even see it until she so easily articulated it. Louie and Alton are pretty much the only other reliable brains of the operation.

I don't think Leon will end up with Man Boy just because Leon can't stand him. i mean, maybe?

Bruh, I saw it and made me think of how many people I know in my hood growing up were fiends and end up getting sober through religion and had them same crazy ass eyes while preaching about the Lord's work.

>Monk from the Wire been eating. I mean i guess we all have but
>i wasn't sure that was him.
Monk been eating real good. Also once again here we go with Franklin not listening to people. You have a damn merc that worked LARP in 'Nam telling you how to handle ish and yet you gotta be hard headed.

>Why was Rob from the valley part of the ambush/shoot out? He's

Rob stood out as a strange thing but at this point you figured he's all the way in on this shit now and Franklin don't have an army so he had to bring whoever. Jerome has never been about that murder life, you could tell he was old school use ya fist kinda dude.

That whole Man Boy vs Skully thing is another dumb Franklin move, everyone including Leon told him not to fuck with Man Boy from the jump. Now with the gang war they still said don't fuck with Man Boy cause he's out to take over. What does Franklin do, chase the money and fuck it up.

>I thought that whole bottoms shoot out sequence with ManBoy vs
>Stacy last season was part of Franklin's coma dream.

Yea that was really, ManBoy never wanted to deal with Skully anyway and I don't remember them saying why it popped off but ManBoy been waiting to hit Skully.

>It's good to have this show back

It feels real good to have this show back. I do have questions about the LA Harold (R.I.P.) reporter and how she's going to bring shit down. Also Reed is fully hooked on that coke now, how long before he's totally left out alone and he has to deal with Cartel's etc....?

I'm guessing she's going to end up discovering that Franklin is backed by the CIA. And then it becomes a Gary Webb type thing (allbeit one that's about a decade early).

Which would mean they're trying to wrap the show up. Also, her line about growing up in the area, seemed off. As far as I remember growing up the area where Franklin and them are is/was primarily black. Just seemed off.

what has intrigued me about this show so far is that it actually talks about the government involvement in the 80's which hasn't been touched on in other shows that I'm aware of

Don't do that hoe shit.

I'm not watching the show because it is reselling the crack era as lurid gangster entertainment. It is a fictionalized retelling of a horrible time in american history.

And! There is nothing mad up abt that. Continue to cheerlead tho hoe cake. I'm glad you enjoying it

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

And the death fake-outs are the fucking worst.
That was when I knew I was done with The Walking Dead. 6 episode death pump fake.
One of the many great things about The Wire and early Game of Thrones was that they didn't protect characters like that.
As soon as season 4 started, I thought, it's getting too hot around Franklin and crew. Somebody, Jerome, Louie, or Leon has to die. Then they do an annoying ass pump-fake. Louie might be my favorite character, but if you're gonna go through the trouble of shooting her (and after Franklin survived his shooting), she should have died.

And then we get the death of 3 antagonists in 1 episode? C'mon. It's too easy for these people.

In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Kev was just being a bitch

I don't really think Kevin was that central a character. They were teeing him up to be taken out the whole season.

The Louie thing bothered me, because we *just* went through the "she's in surgery" thing with Wanda. I love Louie and i thought it was ballsy as hell of the show to take her out, until they didn't.

took me a while to realize who Scully is played by. Like no it can't be him?!

dope that De'aundre Bonds is getting work after his bid. I've always been a fan.


The show teetered there in season 2 where I almost gave up on it. But I'm gald I stuck with it. I think the Melody episode was the turning point for me where this went from a good show to a great one.

I don't think the writing was ever great, but this 4th season was all about high drama at the expense of good writing.
Entertaining, but eye-roll inducing.

it was much slower and methodical..

I know some didn’t like that but I enjoyed the pace the first 3 seasons.

80. "Lol @ the season 4 finale"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Episode full of setups for season 5. Like, nothing really happened aside from the shit with Alton and Teddy. Nigga on the radio threatening to tell the info but not actually telling it and then thinking they gonna let him live? Then the whole speech about "the white man" at the standoff felt more like white folks writing than anything real.

Ok, they found Lucia, but we don't see her. Jerome and Louie bouncing.

If Franklin keeps telling Leon what he is and ain't gon do, he's going to wake up one day and Leon will be in Italy somewhere, living his best life.

The big ending with Melody and the cane was rather corny to me.

The way his mama walked out the door after telling Alton she was going to the store was HILARIOUSLY goofy.

He deserved everyone of those bullets. And like others have said, I wish they would have killed him off. It would have made more sense for her to take him out.

How do you kill off the main character in a show without ending the show?

Entertaining enough, I love that they’re putting in the CIA bringing coke in element, but judging it on the Breaking Bad/Wire scale.....it’s just not all the way there. It’s watchable though and occasionally great.

I mean, I can suspend belief on occasion - hell, Breaking Bad required it often.

but the writing and pacing were just on another level from this. Snowfall is good, but sometimes it’s sloppy.

In response to Reply # 85


  

          

i love FX but they have a certain quality and vibe to their shows that causes their dramas to be a little schlocky at times. they'll sacrifice a sensible journey just to get to a destination/scene they want to show

HBO I feel like they'd have to come w/ more attention to detail and nuance.
