Before The Haves and The Have Nots arrived on the scene, I didn't care for soap operas and never in a million years thought I'd like one. I'm more of your reality show and adult cartoon kind of guy. My favorite TV series is American Dad. But now I have two favorite television series: The Have and The Have Nots has now topped my list along with American Dad as what I believe to be two of the greatest TV shows of all time greatest TV shows of all time. Tyler Perry has REALLY outdone himself with this smash hit, MUST-SEE television drama series, The Have and The Have Nots. I've seen every episode thus far and I just have to say that the series better win an Emmy, a Tony, or otherwise. The series is deep, powerful, and sheer brilliance.
And if you think I'm just some biased fan of Tyler Perry's work, think again. I am very critical of his other show "Love Thy Neighbor." That show is pure garbage. The OWN network needs to scrap that immediately. I watched the first few episodes of that and have been unable to watch. Both my mom and my boyfriend have said "Love Thy Neighbor" is grating. But The Have and The Have Nots, on the other hand... ugh ugh ugh ugh... truly a work of art. I mean, its ratings speak for themselves. The ratings for The Have and The Have Nots keeps increasing and has most recently blown through the roof.
It's so wonderful to see OWN finally introduce a breakout hit television series. I know they've been struggling for the last few years and have been working their butts off to create something that really captures the public. All I have to say to them with regards to The Have and The Have Nots is congratulations, you all have finally done just that.
The Have and The Have Nots first season has almost completed and it has rocking the house the whole time. Just when we thought Oprah Winfrey had fell flat on her face and was about to croak with regards to this new network malarkey, she breaks out with this masterpiece. When I first heard of and even The Have and Have Nots, I said to myself "What in the hell was this man thinking? What was the network thinking and what kind of garbage is this?" And about a half hour into watching just the first episode of The Have and Have Nots, I had made a full 360. It only took that long before both my boyfriend and I had completely taken to this show.
The Have and Have Nots will leaves you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. The stories and plots are always juicy, deep, scandalous, and controversial. The writing is powerful with sheer brilliance. Each of the show's actors are flawless and do their characters to a T. The series abounds with twists and turns at every stop. I am just bowled over by how well done this series is. With each episode, the series just keeps getting better and better.
In addition, the series had the highest rated season premiere of on the OWN network to date. It's been having season highs in ratings left and right. It's easily headed on to become OWN's biggest television series of all time. A character with soooooooooo much soul and depth about her. I am black and she reminds me of my grandmother, that stereotypical black grandmother. She has that feel about her and get it down pat.
Also, the characters will win you over on this series time and time again. When you watch, be sure to detect the AWESOME mannerisms of the character Veronica. Never have I seen such villainy, cattiness, and aggression dealt out with so much grace, beauty and refinement. This Veronica character and how she comports herself are TO DIE FOR. She has these very distinct decorated self-expression about her that's MUST-SEE TV. Then there is the rascally, unscrupulous, conniving daughter character, Candace. A lot of swagger and sass about this girl. She's portrayed as doing a lot of stuff she has no business, but with all her wiles, sass, and swagger, being able to get away with it. TO DIE FOR. Then there's Hanna. She has soooooooooo much soul and depth about her. I am African American and she completely reminds me of my grandmother. She has that stereotypical grandmotherly aura down pat. Then the story lines. UGH @ the story lines. I can relate to them all. This whole homosexual-involved storyline with Wyatt and Jeffrey will just take your breath away. You can feel like you can relate.
All I am saying is The Have and The Have Nots is blowing up! If you watch the series, you will know immediately what I'm talking about. This is at least why I believe this show deserve a lot of recognition for an award.
