Pleasantly surprised, 7.75/10 Stars
16 March 2018 | by stevesmith-80860See all my reviews

Based off the synopsis I didn't think I was going to like this show. I thought this show was going to be more social justice activism. I ended up really liking this show. I think the show did a really good job of giving a nuanced perspective of very complex issues, they did not try to dumb down the messaging to good and evil like some other shows and movies do. The show did a really good job of presenting all sides and letting the viewer come to their own conclusions. The show does not perceive to tell you what is right and wrong and what to think, they leave that up to the viewer to decide for themselves. The acting in this so was superb, especially Regina King, Russell Hornsby, and Michael Mosley. The dialogue was good but some of the New York accents were a little over the top, nothing too bad though. The story was good. The more episodes I watched the better the show got.

7.75/10 Stars
