What the CANE – Queen Sugar

In Communication, Griot, TV Shows on July 21, 2017 at 6:16 am

Did you see the episode 6 of Queen Sugar a couple of days ago?
The family dinner that closed the show was pretty hard to throat.

Post their fathers headstone memorial everyone came back to the house,
They sat down at the table before the dine to commune for a while
and ooo child

let me tell you what went down then:
Aunt Vi and Hollywood witnessed frayed ends.

Ralph Angel (RA) is the youngest and only Bordelon male child
he found a letter addressed to him from their father after he died

Ernest Bordelon left the lot of his farm to his son Ralph Angel to passed down to Blue.

Initially he shared the letter with Aunt Vi
And her surmise: the letter could ruin their lives 

Because big sis Charlie has invested big dough – she’s the farms financial motor.
Their fathers last days were spent cleaning toilets, learned (middle sis), Nova.

Charlie was blindsided by all and asked the fam to ‘hold the phone,’
And clarified that the letter Ernest wrote gave the farm to RA, alone!?

RA said, “Yeah. Y’all can read it for yourself.
Both his sisters got up – but no for the mail


Nova and Charlie both started heading for the door.
I got the impression they were done with the “unity” score.

Aunt Vi, Hollywood and Darla sat at the table in silence…
I wasn’t talking either. I was busy writing this. 📝

What the Cane is going on with the fam?
The farm belongs to Ralph Angel. The ladies are like ‘damn.’
What now?

Episode 6 is titled: Line Of Our Elders and rightfully so.
We are passed down and inherit our ancestors beloved whoas.

The content of this series is sweet, sticky and thick.
I’m Qui
A candy lover though eating too much Cane can make you sick.

The family vibe
is mud and Ernests’ letter is the stick.

POWER Gripping

Power Season 4 2017

Tony Teresi threatens to reveal Ghost if he doesn’t have Tommy deliver 20 Grand a week to his dying wife.

OMG and Ooo Wee! Did you see POWER Sunday night?
Angela, Ghost and Tommy all have their fights:

  • Ghost is still in jail.
  • The prosecution team is still giving him hell.
  • Angela is focused on her own vengeance spell.
  • She is  the ‘hold up’ in preventing Ghosts’ bail.

My goodness, kinfolk, Sunday night was a familial hard selll:
Kanan is building Tariq a rap sheet; to secure his future FAIL.
Dre’ knows Kanan’s kicking it with Riq but can’t tell.

Accessory to Burglary
even for a minor is a felony…

So he didn’t and the story was further hard hittin’
Teresi is on lockdown with feelings that he should be winnin.’

With thoughts of swindlin’ and grinnin he approached Jamie in the yard,
identified him as Ghost and insisted on bribing him for 20 large.

Ghosts told Proctor when he came to visit him
To give Teresi what he wants —  because he’s divvying Ghost’s grim.

power-prosecutor-john1st chair D.A. John enlists Teresi to get info on Ghost.
He’s looking for a move that could render Jamie toast.

While Tommy delivered the first bribe of 20 grand
He chatted it up with the “bribe receiving” hand.

He asked a series of questions that Jamie sent via Proctor
and when he mentioned the “Stoletti case” he could tell, he got ’em.

Now I personally don’t “know” the Saletti” case
but it was clear Tommy hit a nerve by the look on the guys face.

So the next time the two inmates met in the yard it was a viewers blessing.
Ghost duly set things straight between him and Tony Teresi.

Ghost slipped a rip about the Saletti case and stuff
and nodded condolences on Teresi’s wifes cancer being rough.

Though in light of “Saletti” – he won’t be wearing Teresi’s bribing cuffs.
Still I feel for Teresi, Jamie’s speech may not be enough.

Teresi’s wife is dying of Cancer and she doesn’t have long to live,
so him bribing Ghost is more of a necessary and a not a negotiable give.

So we will see where that goes…
Will Ghosts’ checkmate on Teresi end his woes?

The writers are not showing their hand on that piece
but there’s chaos on every page – a scripts slow release.

power-julio-dreDre told Tommy that he and Julio were Federally hauled in
and that Julio talked to the Feds longer than the span of his begin-to-end.

Julio on his beat ran into Cristobal
who complained about his soldier who is currently on the fall.

Cristobal complained to Julio of his injured hot headed grunt,
and how he doesn’t appreciate Tommy running over his legs – a wreckless stunt.

Cristobal further questioned how Julio is the boss
and let is slip it’s not a title bestowed, but comes at a cost.

Then he dropped the mic and walked off
leaving Julio looking like he wanted to bawl.

Julio took that conversation to Tommy to file a complaint.
But only soldiers talk to Tommy and a soldier Julio – AIN’T!

Tommy had no sympathy for Cristobal’s bedridden goon
and told Julio he better pull it together soon.

Something tells me,
Julio ain’t gone hone this beat.

power-cristobal

Cristobal never smiles in character.

Dre ran into Cristobal at the club
and the two of them discussed Julio “screwing up.”

I’m not really sure why Dre was talking to him,
but it’s likely because Dre wants to be the DISTRO gem.

Enough about him, what about Tasha and the fam?
Tasha dropped by the prison to speak to Ghost and say, “Damn!

Angela’s has been calling me quite a bit as of late…
she said she offered you a deal that you didn’t take.

She said it was an offer that would save the kids and me?
She thinks that she and I should be on the same team.”

Basically Tasha stopped by the prison in short
to prove to Ghost that he still has her heart,

but she also meant
no future deals are to be made or spent

before running it by her – because it’s a huge part of her life.
After all Ghost created this situation that cleaves to his wife.

power-lakieshaAnd then there’s LaKeisha and all that she’s got:
Tommy, her kid and OH LORD! Not the shop?!

Another warrant and FBI cops locked the shop down as she left one night.
In a panic she called Tasha looking for the light,

Tasha knew nothing; Her problems are overwhelming and by a few.
Dre placed a call to Tommy, because the FBI also shut down TRUTH.

All of Jamie St. Patricks assets are frozen and what was further not cool,
is that when Tasha retrieved the kids at 3, she was informed they’re suspended from school.

Because of insufficient funds.
They usually auto-draft, but there was none.

Could things get any lower? The script was going downhill and strong,
Then Angela looks over Truth surveillance footage and concludes she was wrong.

She watched minute-by-minute footage before and after Greg died
and saw not one minute that Ghost had a gun to hide.
It became obvious the mole is still active and alive…

Like I said the writers hand is invisible and I’m not even tripping,
I’m Qui
and it’s that kind of skill set that keeps Starz POWER Gripping.

This is a strong liq that I don’t mind sipping.

FARGO’s Uh-Oh

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows on July 17, 2017 at 4:55 am

Rays girlfriend & ex-con Nikki

Okay, I don’t know if you’re still looking
But FARGO, Season 3 is predicate booking.

There are 3 Stussy’s: 2 brothers and 1 unrelated Ms. —
A pricey vintage stamp collection is the younger brothers wish.

The older brother, Emmit is rich because he cashed in the stamps.
The younger brother, Ray is broke and is ‘Bridge Game’ amp’d.

The thing about Ep. 1 of Season 3
Is it parallels the White Houses troubles.

Oh Lawd and Ooo wee.
Did someone say (outside influence) bribery?

L-R: Emmit and Ray Stussy

So, let’s start with Emmit:
Not long ago he received a short term loan.
Alas his date of due pay has come in strong.

He’s made many calls to repay the loan
But found no one answers the lenders phone.

He & business partner Syd knew not what was wrong
Until the lender showed up and said it’s NOT a loan.

V.M. Varga is the villain lenders name
He insists the $1 million was an investment into Emmits lane.

Emmit and Sy think this is insane but Varga offered no out,
While Ennis Stussy is mistakenly murdered via Ray’s pout.

Ray hired a parolee to rob Emmit and get the vintaged stamp
But the parolee botched the job & got Rays gf amp’d.

Rays tempered gf is Nikki and she’s an ex-con (likely county not fed).
She pryed the a/c from her apt. window and dropped it on the parolees head.

Because the parolee lost Emmits address memo, he located and killed the wrong guy.
He killed Ennis Stussy not Emmitt. Ennis lived a lowly shop keepers life.

Chief of Police Gloria Burgle is the late Ennis Stussy’s step daughter

Ennis’ step daughter is the Chief of Police and she’s the one that found him dead
That was around the time the a/c fell onto the paroles head

across town.
FARGO is wild yo! True stories take the crown.

Season 3 has already concluded in tale totality.
I’m just now enjoying the run ON DEMAND. They held it there from me.

FARGO is an account of true recollections that you’ve got to see.
If you missed it but want to catch it – it’s FX ON DEMAND for free.

If you subscribe to satellite or cable
“Free” is the word used because it’s rewind able.

I’ve not ever been to N. Dakota but legend has it therein have been a lot of Uh-Oh’s.
I’m Qui
A pretty hard core fan of ON DEMAND and their archives of FARGO.

Ps— just so ya know transparency is sheer I’m hear to report Season 4 will be out in 3 years. It’s just pending — No cancellation jeers.
