One dimensional characters
29 June 2017 | by pgoodenSee all my reviews

We have the cosseted wife of a star athlete, the firebrand sister, the " I gotta be a man" brother and the all knowing auntie.

There is no depth to the characters as they are so broadly painted and predictable Aunt Vi and Hollywood seem to chuckle a lot and Ralph and Ralph Angel smolder's - His ex junkie wife and we can easily see this coming

oh and of course we have the big bad white man who is trying to foil all of their efforts.

I find no hugely redeeming qualities to this show
