the one white detective who looks like the lost baldwin bother..

the female professor - fine as all get out but soap level actress at best.

Don't Be A Menace ruined Larenz Tate's brother for me forever. he's impossible to take seriously

at the top of that list is the new kingpin dude/Cane's daddy.. he's something out of a music video..

Tariq's always been pretty bad. There are others who are doing a good job.

all that said, i still love it. last episode was nuts

Just binged this. Probably my favorite series of the year. William Jackson Harper and Jessica Williams had wonderful chemistry. Comedian CP and Punkee Johnson stole almost every scene. Damn good writing.

It was thoroughly enjoyable, but I found the music extremely distracting. I kinda hate modern music used in old time films, and this was no exception. (I also hate dyed beards, and Idris' and Deon's beards pissed me off.)

It was cheeky but not corny, and the uncomfortable humor served to get his points across exceptionally well in my opinion.

tried to watch the bougie Fox show but it was too ridiculous. Way too many coincidences in the first 3 or 4 episodes.

27. "I Though The Regular "Wonder Years" Was Boring"
In response to Reply # 12


  

          

The urban revamp version is just as boring as the original, never understood what hollywood liked about the late 60's to late 70's era of America, every few years another show comes out glorifying this era with the so-called wholesome family in suburban neighborhood through the kid or young adult p.o.v. & shit.

I don't like the "Goldbergs", I thought the first two seasons of "Fresh Off The Boat" after that it got terrible, I hated "That 70's Show", "Astronaut Wives Club, "The Kids Are Alright", "American Dreams", etc. & so on, didn't like those at all.

13. "Struggling to finish Harlem on AmazonPrime."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I think I've shut the show off three or four times while attempting to binge it out of complete disgust. I highly doubt I'll be able to completely finish it to be honest. I watched 6 out of the 10 episodes if memory serves me correct.

Before that, I binged both seasons of South Side from HBO Max. The first season was better than the second IMO, but I like how creative the storylines and characters are. The conservative leaning black cop character is by far my favorite character.

that shit was terible.

And I agree that the first season of South Side was better than the second. They didn't do a whole lot with Simon and Q this season. Officers Turner and Goodnight were hilarious as per usual, but even Goodnight didn't really have much to do.
Really hope they get renewed for seasons 3-4-5.

2 episodes into Grand Crew and I'm already losing interest, its like their trying to do white humor with a black cast and I don't think that will appeal to either demographic

that show is written by women for women and that's part of the reason it doesn't click with me.

Another part of me thinks that's a pretty sexist stance because some of the outlandish stuff on the show that disgusts me shouldn't be tolerable by any gender.

In response to Reply # 33


  

          

Seemed like the show wanted to exaggerate certain situations just for attention's sake or to get cheap laughs. I felt bad for some of actresses while watching the show because they deserved better material. For the most part, they didn't take me out of the show while watching it due to subpar acting; the subpar writing did.

It doesn't seem too over the top and looks as if it'll be a positive show that I hope doesn't become too preachy.

Also pretty wild to see that Zach Fox will actual be a character on this show.

51. "Grand Crew....a couple of thoughts"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

My first thought was that it was written by white people. It seems that it was not. It seems in an effort to make a show that shows "different" type of black people, they made a show that doesn't resemble black people at all to me.

Secondly, and a more sensitive matter, is it me or do all these guy character read as gay? BTW, that would have been a more interesting and different show.

Look I am 45, not the target demo, so maybe this is what 30 year olds identify with so correct me if I am wrong.

60. "hmm.. didn’t get the vibe they were gay but something feels off"
In response to Reply # 51


          

I tried twice but I think the delivery is a bit too unrealistic.

If I closed my eyes I don’t hear a Black show.

Not sure how to describe it but I said it feels like a show made by people who don’t season their food.

72. "The main dude played a gay superhero on Arrow. "
In response to Reply # 51


  

          

And he ‘refuses to comment on his sexuality.’ So maybe him. I get nothing from the other dudes, though. They’re just not hypermasculine.

I feel like they’re tryna catch the Brooklyn 99 tone but don’t really have the actors to pull it off. Half of them feel like they’re drowning in the dialogue. Only Carl Tart and Justin Cunningham seem comfortable.

In response to Reply # 72


          

and the only person who annoys me to where I hate when he's on the screen is Carl Tart. I love Nicole Byer. I like her character's and Noah's brother/sister relationship. Overall, I don't hate it...it's just an ok show. I agree with you on the BKN 99 feel, too.

...ask my top 5, I'll say me 5 times, like Dylan - Roc Marci

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

it's pretty ridiculous and soap opera af with the everyone betraying everyone constantly, but damn if it ain't a blast of a show

I also crack up how every young girl on the show cant resist Tariq and just throw it at him.

50 cent coming back like Obi Wan to give Tariq advice..

i'm a week behind but I'm loving every minute. looking forward to the Tommy show too. bad acting and all.

In response to Reply # 83


  

          

i was whatever on last season but i've enjoyed this season so much. I guess it's a matter of knowing what i'm getting from it

it's impossible to keep up with every thread of betrayal until you realize everyone is literally doing something behind everyone's back, if not outright betraying them.

and for some weird reason, none of them feel they can function without Tariq St Patrick

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

(also American Auto - not a Black show, per se, but 3 of the ensemble are Black, and Black-ish).

Abbott Elementary and Grand Cru are both very dope to me, and deliver some very unexpected laughs. both go from real to absurd very quickly.

me and wife get a glass of wine to watch Black Tuesday.

peace & blessings,

I don’t know any white people like the white people on sitcoms and I know plenty of white people.

I don’t know any Black people like any Black characters on Black sitcoms.

Sitcom characters are painted with broad brush strokes for comedic purposes.

I expected the show to be kinda weird, judging from the comments in here... but it's.... just a comedy show, being a comedy show. And it happens to star Black ppl. I genuinely didn't see the problem. It wasn't disrespecting us from what I saw. I actually kind of appreciated its direction.

90. "I watched the first episode the other night"
In response to Reply # 86


  

          

And I was actually very surprised by how good it is!
Everything I saw in the the promo down to the images used on Peacock told me that I was going to hate this shit. I put it on completely expecting to turn it off after like 20 minutes... but that shit is actually quite good. Will clearly pumped a lot of money into this show, and that's, imo, a part of what makes it good. So often they try to make shows on a shoestring budget and they turn out really bad. That's not to say this one isn't without it's problems. That was a whoooole lot to pack into a single episode that basically takes place over like 48 hours. It's super dramatic at every turn, Will's romance is super rushed, and they need to explain how this lawyer appears to be a goddamn billionaire. But they are true to the original in a lot of ways, while modernizing it in a lot of really good ways. It feels like it was written by Black folks. The kids, talk like kids talk; the updates to Jazz and Geoffrey are well done. I'ma keep watching.

They didn’t explain it the first time around… lol.

I’m actually looking for ways to watch this or will binge it once the season ends.

A friend from VCU works in the industry and received a swag bag with the tan Jordans he has on in the promo and a hand painted basketball.

and they gave VCU a shout out in the first ep!! I’m sure dude asked them to use our school when it came to the scholarship.

But in the OG series the family was rich obviously, but in this one, they're on a whole 'nother level. Like that level of wealth doesn't make sense.

and Jazz looks like he has a legit chance with Hillary.

I like that they gave him a darker aspect with the fixer stuff but still kept him as warm and affable with the family and Will.

In response to Reply # 86


  

          

and I liked that more than what is on Peacock. I liked the actors playing Jazz, Hillary, Carlton and Uncle Phil more. Also, I found out that Morgan Cooper is from KC. Said he had the idea while driving down 71 highway. That's dope!

In response to Reply # 118


          

who took a bullet for you and then sees you living your best life while he has to go back to West Philly.

Whats crazy is Will would go back to W. Philly and then go to college and leave him behind.

Just the reality of growing up and putting your interest first.

The Ashley shit seems forced but expected in 2021 television.

and Carlton.. man, we all ended up liking or appreciating Carlton in the first show but I don’t see how this nigga can win us over. He will have to take a bullet for Will or get beat to a
pulp by the KKK to get some sympathy.

Free on Prime until the end of the month. The episodes are short. I have been watching since the beginning of the month but slowly because I thought there was only one season. There are actually 3 seasons. I will binge the rest this weekend.

Pretty brave concept for a TV show, especially since TV shows don't normally showcase the elderly, muchless someone suffering through dementia.

144. "This was a very solid show."
In response to Reply # 142


  

          

Very open minded of Apple TV to show a black show that had the lead character being an old man with dementia. The subject matter, the majority black cast, and the fact the show is only for one season is pretty open minded for a major network.

I almost feel bad that I didn't pay to watch it.

weaving COVID and all the police shootings in real life into this show has got this show stale as fuck and not fun anymore.

i see fans on twitter complaining about them ODing on the gay storylines this season but that aint even in my top 10 of things that have driven this show off a cliff

more of the strip club stuff and the rap tour, more titties and ass, more backwoods soap opera drama please. this shit they are doing now isnt even the same show anymore.

In response to Reply # 153


          

Is it wild that my immediate thought was “this reporter prolly trans” just cause the way the season has played out and the absence of his old flame?

anyway.

Traci is ridiculous on this show. Yes, I’m talking her body. She fine as a muuuuhfukka.

exactly, he has the whole fake girlfriend then old girl on the side and you know it will eventually come out. You heard Poppa's dad ask him "if the rumors were true"

>anyway.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          



recently:

Kim's Convenience - discovered that by accident on Netflix. watched all 5 seasons. really nice sitcom. simu leiu was on that before he blew up w/ shang chi

lupin - all (however many) seasons, i think 2, on netflix. french series (crime / heist joint) featuring omar sy. first series we ever watched about Black french people. fux w/ it.

Man Like Mobeen - bri'ish telly sitcom. came up on that early this summer and binged through it. that was interesting. funny series about a pakistani ex thug in the hood in england trying to stay on the straight and narrow and raise his little sister.

Only Murders In the Building (hulu) - 2nd season now. still on. this has replaced our get a glass of wine and chill show (was Grand Cru + Abbott Elementary before their seasons ).

the witcher - netflix

the Orville (hulu) - 3rd season. this show is really good. star trek, but more irreverent, but they be hitting on some serious shit. and the production values are really dope for a kind of star trek comedy.

the expanse - (season 6 was over last year. been finished that. but it's really one of the best modern sf series ever. great writing, production values, acting, and it's very smart. described as GoT in space, but long before George RR Martin ran out of gas and the series went to shit). it's on amazon prime. every season is dope.

peace & blessings,

x.

The IG of it all is kinda annoying because I don’t normally watch when people go live. I find I enjoy it more the few times the IG part fades away and it feels like a normal show.
