I HATE Period Dramas
5 June 2017 | by amberrenee-02393See all my reviews

I hate classical dramas and such because of the loaded vocabulary that means BS to me. Period dramas are boring and dull, until BAM! Sex scenes that are eye catching full with nipples, boobies, and booty. That is all I have to say about the genre of period dramas.

BUT I'll have to make one exception-this exception. This is not a go-to boring old period Drama. I like it on how the cast is very diverse, it breaks boundaries and the stereotypical "black people are slaves" notion. Here black people are royalty instead of slaves in period dramas. Black people exist, and I am glad the creators decided to fall through the the plan based on talent. Though I want to acknowledge other actors/actresses who are a minority in the show as well, who I probably am unaware of their background and such because their chances to "make it big" in the industry are very slim.

There will be negative reviews on how this is not authentic to the source, how cheesy it is, and how this is part of PC culture. This is an extravagant twist on Shakespeare, it is not suppose to be the same as 100+ other versions of a Romeo & Juliet media productions- that is the point. It has it's cheesy moments, as well as soap operas like Days of our Lives that constantly plays every hour and has never gotten cancelled. Yes, it is part of inclusion of actors/actresses who have a slim chance in the TV/film industry during callbacks for lead/supporting roles or finding work-this is a breath of fresh air, welcome it.

I am not surprised because I am in Shondaland. I love Shondaland. Though I understand this is not Netflix, I hope that this show won't get cut. I have fallen in love with shows with diverse casts (specifically black and latinx) but they ended up getting cut from the lineup (talking about Sense8, The Get Down, Underground, Sleepy Hollow, etc). Again, as much as I want to love the show, I am a bit wary of it's impending demise.
