Respectable TV Fare
10 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's important to remember that this "series" was conceived for the small rather than large screen. As such, it's a respectably written (by Quincy Lenear) and directed (by LeNear and Doendray Gossett) series on a now-timely topic.

The created year of 2005 already makes a difference in 2008, with less "bite" than probably it had just three years ago. One can imagine how dated this may become in only a few more years.

The acting is sensibly played by talented pros who downplay their lines, striving for subtlety and nuance. While the script only allows them to go so far, the cast does well with the material.

The four segments, "Wes," "Robert," "Boo," and "Mark" are all interesting, with the "Robert" sequence becoming quite touching toward the end. One wonders what kind of "season" this was, being comprised of a mere four segments. Still, "The DL Chronicles" is one of the first and most notable to tackle this sensitive subject, and do it with considerable sensitivity.
