Union is at Her Best!!
15 January 2014 | by tmccaskiSee all my reviews

First off, I must commend the show's producers for having an entire ensemble of people of color. The story line may bit off of Scandal just a tad bit, however like Kerry Washington. Gabrielle Union does an awesome job as she fearlessly leads this cast to television success. Not to mention the supporting cast does a wonderful job of making up for the show's comedic reliefs. The men on show are extremely attractive and talented actors in their own right like Omari Hardwick. I also love the emotion behind each scene that is accompanied by an array of music that fits each scene perfectly leaving the viewer to feel exactly how it was intended for them to fee. Being Mary Jane is a 2014 must see, although if they plan to take home any Golden Globes or Emmy's then the writers had better turn up the heat.
