enjoyed the series, but did not know the real story
In Europe the story of Madam C.J. Walker is not really known (or at least I never heard of her before watching the trailer for this new series).
So I looked at it as a person not familiar with real story of the life of Madam C.J. Walker.
Enjoyed the acting, enjoyed the story. I would probably have added one more episode for closure.
After watching I started reading up on the real life of Madam CJ Walker and found that there were some discrepancies and exaggerations in the story.
Ok title says 'inspired by' so they can be a bit 'creative', but that's a pity when it's more a biographical story.
