Gets better with each season
4 September 2020 | by sophia55See all my reviews

Many shows decrease in quality with each passing season, Blackstone is the opposite. The show takes a season or so to hit its stride, but incredible character development starts in the first episode. Every character is allowed to have flaws, which allows for nuanced and very real portrayals. The acting on this show is unparalleled, the performers are able to take complex and often very heavy story lines and portray them in a way that is respectful and real. Michelle Thrush and Carmen Moore, often seen in supporting or guest roles in other shows, give career defining lead performances. This show handles sensitive topics incredibly well, and not in an "episode of the week" type fashion. A single issue is often shown from multiple different perspectives. All in all, Blackstone is a riveting, intense, and memorable drama highlighting an incredibly talented cast.
