    so if it was a show about dude with three gfs, then what?



    Then it wouldn't be a show about a ho doing ho shit.

    Actually it would.

    Inb4 lock/key analogy

    I have yet to hear that one.

    The master key/shitty lock analogy. A key that opens many locks is master key, but a lock that is opened by many keys is a shitty lock.

    Many a nigga has used that as the logic behind why men can't be hoes/sluts

    Watched the first episode...it was ok. The tone of it was exactly like the movie and had spike imprint all over it. The actors kinda bring it down for me. This is probly all of their first real gigs so I'll stall em out.

    I'll keep watching but it's probly not something I'll binge...more of a watch an episode or 2 here and there kinda show.

    first ep was cool

    def a spike lee production

    not a bad thing

    the dialogue didn't feel natural at times though and the constant pop culture references was little too much

    i give it another ep before i decide to move forward

    Not bad, happy for the black opportunities. Dope in a lot of areas, but some things were wack.

    Shit fell all the way apart in the last episode.

    Main character motivations were all over the place. Maybe that was intentional, but it ended up being plot speed bumps.

    Delivering messages seemed to be more important than story.

    I'm watching right now and on Episode 2...




    I liked the film especially it shot in black and white..






    I'm watching this shit with a grin on my face all through... I dunno if the plot as a movie can translate to a series




    I've been watching some of Spike's recent work and it's interesting his casting of women in his movies: mostly unknowns
    ... always immediately go for my boobs ... She feelin me up like "are those your nipples?" I'm like "don't touch there. my money is there." So she's running my hips and thighs ...

    @Madame_CJSkywalker this show is very bold in highlighting feminist values (I'm on Episode 4 now) ... do you still dig it?

    Yea I'm not gonna lie I'm not really feeling the show...I'm only 3 eps deep but something is off. The movie incarnation of nola was more nuanced and balanced. The show version is whiny and unrealistic...and I don't like how they made the dude grabbing her the reason behind why she went to therapy. IIRC, in the movie she couldn't choose which dude she wanted to be with and the therapy helped her see the deeper issues behind why she was even keeping them niggas around in the first place. It was a natural progression...the show trying too hard to fit in a bunch of today's shit and feels forced.

    I'll keep watching cuz I like the visuals a lot but the story is meh...

    I missed this post, but yes! That's exactly what I was getting at with my previous post. Tell the fuckin story stop tryna address every issue we got going on today. With that said, I appreciate the gentrification angle.

    it is corny at times and some things do feel forced, but i still dig it ...and i want to support spike

    also satisfying seeing the show doesn't just focus on nola's sexuality but it also pays attention to the ways in which blk female bodies are constantly scrutinized and under surveillance (by the white cashier); exploited ( fat joe, reality TV); and threatened (by men on the street)

    like how they fleshed out the main male characters..... the opal character as well benefited. glad they didn't just leave her this stereotypical dyke who like to prey on straight women

    don't necessarily like how jamie is now into this tortured philanderer...but glad the jamie/nola
    rape from the movie has been omitted...big improvement...
    at least so far it has been omitted

    on ep 7 i think...
