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.)

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.

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

32. "Part of me wants to believe"
In response to Reply # 28


  

          

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.

34. "From memory's sake, mainly the over the top sexual situations."
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.

More of an issue with colorism. The light skin character was rich and classy but the dark skin character was overweight and crass...

40. "looks like 8 of 10 episodes were directed by women"
In response to Reply # 34


          

and its a mixed bag of executive producers

I think its possible for women to also write and produce bad material but I watched all 10 episodes and just thought it was a sub par show

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.

background as I did with The Wire, GoT, and a few others even though they are all vastly different shows.

Its way more entertaining to me than most "new" shows.

just puts me so far outside of the demographic that the show likely caters to has a lot to do with it.

the acting was ok.....but some of the scenarios that were cooking just seemed so silly and immature...

just a heads up

Excited about Raising Dion.
I have little faith that Snowfall will be any good after John Singleton's passing, but we'll see.

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.
