Because of Hollywood's apparent unwillingness to give quality shows with predominantly African-American casts a chance, I have developed a habit of videotaping every episode of a new Black show, if it seems that show will be decent. It's a very good thing that I did this with "South Central", for this was an excellent show that many people did not give a chance. Modern-day heartthrob Larenz Tate shined here in a difficult role, and comes across as a serious actor. If you can ever get a chance to see it, do so.
