    I noticed that Fishbourne is playing Alex Haley, he was like if I'm going to be in this movie, I'm not playing a 🤬 slave.

    Watched a few mins. They were showing them on the ships goin thru the middle passage. Had to change the channel. 🤬 is too depressing. I couldnt take it.

    I don't think I've ever seen a show where literally EVERY character ain't 🤬 . At least have ONE person start off decent then make the descent to fuckery. Nah everybody that had had screen time on this 🤬 is a 🤬 scumbag and has been for most of their life lol.

    I'm glad black actors got work but I'm not interested in this or that civil war rebellion movie. Feels like white executives want to put out a slave movie every year.

    I'm still heart broken learning that Haley plagiarized roots anyway. 🤬 him and this story
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I feel like they're rushing through and simplifying a lot of 🤬 in this show and also embellishing quite a bit to placate people that need to get little bursts of justice through all the misery and suffering.

    To be honest after seeing the first episode i would have rather seen a new miniseries starting with Kunta's tribe back home warring with the tribe that sold him that takes place over the same timeline.

    this 🤬 is actually getting worse by the second.
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭
    are they really about to throw in a lesbian subplot?
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭
    yo when this nat turner movie comes out i'm gonna have to watch that 🤬 10 times to atone for watching this 🤬 ,
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭
    ayo Kunta is like 40 years old now looking like he's 22. black don't 🤬 .
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I aint ever see Roots its too hot to watch a movie on slavery
  • SneakDZASneakDZA damn, am I a sinner? Members Posts: 11,223 ✭✭✭✭✭
    i saw the original when i was a little kid and even though i was too young to truly understand it instilled in me healthy distrust of white people, government and manual labor.

    who knows what effect this 🤬 will have on young minds but they have the nerve to be showing Tarzan and ancestry.com commercials during this 🤬 so 🤬 this 🤬 .

    I saw parts of the original series, but I was able to see all of the new serious. I actually liked it. They added more things to this one and it was more detailed. The next slave flick I want to see is the National Turner film.
