During the pilot episode, Dina (Yvette Nicole Brown) says that she gave birth to Courtney (Brandon Micheal Hall) at 16. On the show's premiere date, Yvette Nicole Brown was 46 and Brandon Micheal Hall was 24, meaning that they actually had a 22-year age difference between them. See more »
This show is insulting. It feels like a paint by numbers for white people to get a feel for an 'urban setting' with none of the danger or threat of it. The characters are stereotypes from yesteryear that feel out of place and just bad to the point of pandering.
Like they wanted the demographic of 20-mid 30 something millennials in America who think everything is 'lit' to be the audience for this show, and it shows. This show jumps the line between borderline incompetent to absolutely insulting with how it showcases anything.
Lea Michele is just awful. She comes across as flat and lifeless to the point that you wonder how she functions in the setting they've thrown her in. The supporting cast is just lifeless and it feels like what some kid who was born and raised in upper middle class assumes how us 'lowly black folk' talk. Like we don't have common sense.
Someone, somewhere, thought this was a good idea for somebody. I've seen my fair share of young African-American's trying to get into politics plagued by the identity that everyone assumes THIS is how we act.
I get that the painfully written show is going to end up with - SPOILERZ The young black man suddenly realizing how serious being a mayor is after the fact and turning out to be good for his community, just like all black people should, would, and could behave in fictional poorly written fantasy SPOILERZ- But come on. No one sat down and felt like this would be a bit insulting?
This feels like someone watched Atlanta, didn't understand that Donald Glover's character is meant to play the straight man to a situation in which everyone knows is a bit crazy, and all character growth is tossed out the window to get some of those cool songs that the kids all listen to.
Also, just saying you shouldn't be able to get the feeling that a show is written by out of touch people who think this is how the world works or would be entertained with the first episode. Felt like the Mindy Project met Blacklish and some random Jewish writers got on board to show their interpretation of the 'streets'.
