It’s been no secret that Hollywood has been no friend to African-Americans when it comes to television dramas. They give us 100 Meet The Browns before we get one City of Angels. I am so tired of blacks in comedy’s I seldom watch any of them. The last good one in my opinion was Girlfriends, and that one was cancelled.
Imagine my excitement when HBO premiered The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency last night. Shot in Botswana it’s a beautiful look, a wonderful cast, and imaginative script and Jill Scott is simply majestic! The camera loves her and she is a very talented actress. I plan to watch each and every episode!
This was a wonderful show, I am watching it today for the second time today. Jill Scott is great. I loved the way she embraced this role. I am not sure if there was another woman who could capture the role the way that she did. Big up’s to Ms. Scott. She did the damn thing.
