wonderful new show. hate to use the term "soap," for this program is an exquisite chronological drama, in the footsteps of "dallas," "rich man, poor man," etc., but far better. the characters are so richly drawn and developed--one can't help but become attached to and involved with their lives. that's what a really good show aims to do, and tyler perry has the know-how and seemingly boundless ability to weave it all together, and with his patented stunning results. and what a strong, talented ensemble cast--among which, renee lawless and crystal r. fox quite simply shine. of course w/tp you expect the writing to be tremendous, but the entire package makes this my new favorite show...right up there with nashville, good wife and chicago fire. puts current soaps (which i won't call out; they are having ample trouble) and their predecessors to SHAME! thank you tyler perry and KUDOS! keep up the brilliant work!
