It’s a shame we have to wait until January. We were given a taste of the new series on BET on Tuesday starring Gabrielle Union. On so many levels I could relate to her challenges and struggles. If you forgot to tune in try to catch the repeat of the first episode. It takes a realistic view of a successful African American single woman who enables family members, a workaholic, searching for Mr. Right. Some compared this to Girlfriends, in some ways I can see the parallel however it stands on it’s on two feet effortlessly with a realistic viewpoint. There are candid moments shared with her boss and the boutique associate that were reminiscent of Girlfriends. I found myself saying OMG a few times while viewing. Twitter was on fire with comments and dialogue. I definitely found it interesting enough to watch again with someone with a different viewpoint! Now the one thing I can’t consign with is #MaryJane’s hobby in the freezer.
You will have to watch to understand. The other great part of the series is the soundtrack. I have to give it to creators, Mara Akil and Salim Akil for the soundtrack throughout every scene. Artists such as Mary J. Blige, Rebecca Fergueson, Alanis Morisette, Rihanna to name a few. I discovered artists who were unfamiliar to me prior to watching the episodes.
