Trivia

After having shot almost two episodes and having written 8 out of 10 of season 5 production shut down due to the pandemic. A few months later creator Ava DuVernay decided to scrap those scripts and rewrite the season to include the coronavirus and reflect the impact it has had on black people and the farming community. She then joined showrunner Anthony Sparks and writer Norman Vance Jr. to write episodes 3-10 and then shoot them simultaneously based on the location and the actor's availability and with 3 directors working at the same tame.

Somewhat interesting
30 August 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I only watch this series because my girlfriend likes it. It's not a bad show at all, but it's also not a series that has really ever sucked me in. I find the character pretty interesting, and pretty likable, and the overall story arc is pretty good. There are some excellent moments, but there are far more pretty good ones.

The one exception is Darla. the recovering addict who blew up her life and is desperately trying to retrieve it. Bianca Lawson makes the character wonderfully touching and fragile, and when Queen Sugar focuses on her - which is rare - I find myself completely drawn in.

I haven't watched any of season 2 so far, but my girlfriends wants to watch it, so sooner or later we will. But I'm in no rush.
