Clearly, the actors are competent and not chosen based on the color of their skin.
30 May 2017 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

As only episode 1 has been released from the new TV series Based on the book by Melinda Taub, Still Star-Crossed, I can only review the one, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

The scenery is bustling and rich, episode one starts you off just before the demise of Romeo and Juliet, setting the scene of the relationships the different character have with each other while also painting a grim picture of the threats that loom over the fair city of Verona.

The actors are competent and endearing, while again only one episode has aired I don't feel it in any way deserves a 1 star review, but then that could be summed up to bigotry and racism.. what else can you call someone who can't look past the colour of someone's skin? I especially like how Lashana Lynch has made Rosaline come alive on screen, from what I've seen she is a strong and fierce woman who speaks her mind.

It receives a strong 7 from me and I will be tuning in for episode 2 guaranteed!
