10 June 2014 | by nelongoriaSee all my reviews

I watched the first episode because Oprah had raved about it. I laughed all the way the through it, thinking it was another Tyler Perry comedy. The acting was over-the-top and I thought Perry meant it as camp comedy. I had no idea it was supposed to be taken as serious drama. Even the music was dreadful, sounding like something from another era being played on a synthesizer. The writing is the worst I have ever experienced and I have been watching television longer than most of the actors have been alive. I cannot blame the actors for over-acting because I'm certain they are simply delivering what Tyler Perry expects of them. I wish I could find one saving grace about this program but I can't. Oprah has always delivered quality programming and I sincerely hope she is not counting on this to save her network. THATHN should be experienced as a parody on soap operas and not as serious television. THEN it could be relished and enjoyed!
