It's like a really bad 1980s prime time soap opera, except most of the characters are black. Every scene features music which is supposed to heighten the drama but instead proves annoying. The characters are stick figures with little depth or interest - the star basketball player, his perfect MBA wife, their perfect children, the MBA wife's brother who's recently out of prison, his adorable son, etc. You will need a scorecard to keep track of the vast cast. The visuals are gorgeous but bear little relationship to the plot. I know I'm supposed to like this because it was created and executive produced by Oprah and Ava DuVernay (the director of Selma). I don't. If you're looking for a new TV show with a black cast, try the far superior Atlanta on FX.
