How have we come this far, this fast? It’s Episode 10 of Season 4 of Queen Sugar which means there are only 3 episodes left *tears*). And this season has been a pretty good one. This episode “Oh Mamere” belongs to the women, though. It is time that some reconciliation happens and some reckoning as […]

At the beginning of Season 4 of Queen Sugar, the Bordelons look triumphant. In the first episode, entitled “Pleasure is Black” Aunt Vi (Tina Lifford) has left the High Yellow behind for good to open up her own diner Vi’s Prized Pies And Diner. She and Hollywood (Omar Dorsey)have just come off a honeymoon in […]

The day of Lady Mae (Lynn Whitfield) has finally come and any episode with Miss Pattie Pattie – Maxine Patterson, singing is a BLESSING! And yes, she did the dang thing in this episode alongside the immensely talented Charity (Deborah Joy Winans). What a lovely sermon it is even though so much chaos is going […]

Okay, so there’s really not a lot going on in this episode. If you’re looking for a pick up from where we left off with last week’s episode, you won’t find it here. Not only do we not see someone snatch Zora up by her collar and shake some sense into her, we don’t see […]

We are winding down on Queen Sugar Season 3 as next week’s 90-minute episode is the last of the season. But of course, we can look forward to Season 4, already announced, not that it seemed like it was in question. As I’ve communicated this season has been a little rocky but in the last few […]

Skip Bolen / @2016 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved I’m starting to think about the Bordelons a little too much. I’m worried about Aunt Vi (Tina Lifford). I’m hoping that after two seasons of tease, that Remy (Dondre Whitfield) will finally get some. I think I’ve started to feel a little sorry for […]

We’ve reached the season finale of this wonderful show and boy did it go out with a BANG! Episode 10 picks up from where we left off with Raina’s (Donshea Hopkins) tragic, untimely death and –Ish just got real! The St. Patrick’s are in mourning but also on a mission. James “Ghost” (Omari Hardwick) Tasha […]

 As Underground winds down to its conclusion this season, we have another episode to check out. Every week has been yet more suspense about the fate of the Macon 7 – or what’s left of them. This has been a pretty tough season for Cato, Rosalee and Ernestine, but hey, slavery is a pretty damn […]

Our Underground recapper has moved on to another gig, but we want to keep the Underground recaps happening. However, for this week at least, we are going to give it over to our friends over at Vulture to handle the recap of Season 2, Episode 7 episode “28.”  Check back next week for the latest update […]

Say it isn’t so. Two of our favorite shows Queen Sugar and Insecure on HBO have now come to and end. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they are both coming back for second seasons and in the case of Queen Sugar, they are shooting three more episodes for Season 2. And […]

We’re back and so is Power. The third episode, “I Got This On Lock” seems to start out as another show entirely. We get the bird’s-eye view of a pharmacy robbery in progress (shades of Menace II Society). One would-be robber seems a little more reluctant than the other. He texts somebody and then the cavalry […]
