Very relatable by all walks of life who have to keep their lives private, yet have all these responsibilities. The main character is flawed and has constant moral dilemmas. It's very surprising that this is on BET, which was always plagued by stereotypical programming. Even when a good show moved to BET in the past, like The Game for example, the network pressure ended up ruining it. So when I saw a BET logo on the bottom of the screen when I was binge watching Mary Jane, I was very surprised. The same happened when I discovered well written gems like LA Complex and The 100 were from the CW, which I thought was a dull teen network. Well, I guess not anymore, times are changing. The show is very emotional at times, and I am sure BET may still try to spin this into another cliché, I hope that the writers will find a way around it. The show is a must watch for everyone, you do not have to be a black woman to understand the struggles of the main character. There are some tiny clichés in the interactions between different races on the show, but it seems to be a thing with the Atlanta based productions so far. Still the writing is great, and the show stand out. The race subject is approached very intelligently, yet it's not really what this show is about. It's instead is a look into a complexity of our lives in today society, which is so much more different than even 7-8 years ago. It's a very thought provoking from the start. Can't wait for the next season.
