Spike Lee Gives us Excellence with Sucker Free City!!!
8 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was quite impressed at this mini-series debut. It was well worth the weight. The actors were entirely credible in the language, and life situations they were going through.

Mr Lee was quite adept at showing the human side of each character set against the monstrous deeds and situation they were involved with. He was able to show in an episode what others can't accomplish in a season the similarities of man no matter what ethnic group of the human race we rep. We all have family, issues in family, desires, needs, mistakes, spiritual perspectives, a need to connect with loved ones and inspire them, and a hope in a future that is not only better for them but those around them. How you get there is the question, and what manner of man/woman will be if/when you arrive.

I hope that Spike Lee is able to get this project going on Showtime. I know it will give HBO's original programming a run for its money. I was quite disappointed in HBO's third season of The Wire. The characters became predictable and less engaging. However, here with a multi-ethnic view it may be what this nation needs to help dispel stereo types and credit real conversations that connect us as humans and not categories.

I hope Shotime sees this as a project to support 100%
