OH MY WOW!
15 August 2019 | by antoniocassone2013See all my reviews

Very strong Pilot episode made me want to watch it again - IMMEDIATELY! From the brilliant co-writer of MOONLIGHT, this stylized drama takes off like a rocket. Fantastic acting from the amazing ensemble - McDowell and Rashad are stand outs (Phylicia Rashad can do no wrong anymore in my eyes), wonderful writing and yes, there is a moment near the end that made me want to see it all over again. Profound. Provocative. Visually stunning. I hope Oprah and her OWN network gives this a nice Emmy push come next year, because it could very well be a contender.
