"Godfather of Harlem (Forest Whittaker)"


  

          

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.

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

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.

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
