Awful and unbelievable!
19 February 2017 | by sophiekraSee all my reviews

This is one of the dumbest shows BET has put out. If this is what we can come to expect, I plan on finding somewhere else to spend my limited viewing time. The plot was disjointed, the writing and dialogue were terrible, and the characters weren't identifiable or even remotely believable.

Cancel this creative abortion now and start over BET. I think the major problem is the creators. I looked them up and neither of them have been on the inside of a college for the wrong side of 30 years. Thriller had not even been released when they would have been in college. This is NOT reflective of my current HBCU experience and the most out of touch show on television.

There is a great cast, but the material is simply not worthy of them. You can almost see that they are secretly laughing at the over-dramatized dialogue and the ridiculous plots. I would be surprised if the majority stuck around for a second season I doubt will come.

First and last episode I plan on watching. Simply terrible.
