Best TV Biopic since the Temptations
8 February 2017 | by jwilker-11098See all my reviews

With regard to expectations, this TV biopic of New Edition exceeded those and so much more. From night 1 to night 3, there was a sense that this could go on forever, or at least a few more nights. If you were a New Edition fan growing up or love black musical history, this miniseries was for you. I honestly think that BET could have stretched it out to a full 13-episode series (1hr) like the ones on Netflix. The production was great and the musical choices were awesome because it had the REAL music unlike some of these other TV biopics (*cough-cough LIFETIME). Also this was one of the most authentic biopics to date because BET was able to get the real characters that were involved.

In short, watch this miniseries. You will NOT be disappointed. No spoilers here, just go watch the movie! 10/10
