Odd Couple of shows – that I’m digging

OddCoupleOfShows
I’ve been watching a lot of shows, but not necessarily at their scheduled times.
I’ve been getting-it-all-in via my DVR rewind.

I caught up on quite a bit this weekend — there was no serial room for dull;
I sat down and wore ‘the homebody crown’ starting with THE ORIGINALS.

I was about 3 episodes behind, though at the moment I’m all caught up
I was shocked to see the rivalry of 3 against Klaus up-in-the-cut.

Alas the Mickaelson click quietens the ruff blooded mutt.
They daggered o’ Klaus, then watched him quicken-up.

The scene was rough, especially considering
Klaus didn’t kill Aiden; he’s been “defense pandering.”

Meaning when others came running, gunning for the ruff,
He accepted the charge — throwing caution to wind and Dahlia.

He knew he had killed no one, and sensed an evil connect –
so to protect his family, Klaus stuck out his neck.

.
But he did not confess to anyone except Camille, his (bar) home girl
shortly before his kinfolk surrounded him and took him from this world.

It was starting to feel like SCANDAL‘s “Command” was on the scene.
Command is Olivia Pope’s father — Command can be ruthless and mean.

On the last episode the writers put ‘the fear of the unknown’ in our mouths
as we watched Olivia’s click go down, one-by-one as if being picked out.

A good dose of un-clout revealed that Olivia’s father owns this fight
but was unable to execute the fatal root for Jakes life.

In fact, while Olivia was loving on (what she thought was) a random bar muscle
she was indeed knocking boots with her daddy’s henchman — Russell.

Yes! The sexy black man, we’d known as Russell who was creeping in Olivia’s bed
At the conclusion of the last episode was lying on his back with a gun to his head.

Do what?!?
Child hush.

Liv was holding the gun – an automatic glock,
she was pointing it at his head, but was the hammer clocked?

olivia+russell+thegun

We don’t know.
The gun to Russell’s head – ended the show.

So off I go
to another show
That is reflective of today in its reeled time –
who could refuse not relating to the views that are played out on AMERICAN CRIME?

The writers of this show are into dropping bags full of dimes
As it pertains to”domestic insight” — kind of like my griot rhymes.

However this time after my DVR shined off 3 episodes from the digital books
I was forced to see that prejudice is a crime that is accepted and overlooked.

The reflection that we are getting from this show, story-after-story
is that everyone who is offended leans back on “the blame game” glory.

Matt was a 20-something year old vet
who served our country and retreated to sell meth.

He duly married the county’s crowned “Ms. Modesto,”
and in addition to selling drugs he rented out a [betrothed] hoe.

Ohhh and Uh-oh.

You didn’t know? Well I just told ya.
American Crime reflects the grime
in the lining that did mold ya!

Matt’s Mom is beside herself and content with laying the blame on any other
As long as we can prove the suspects ethnicity is from a minority mother.

Matt’s mother doesn’t care if the killer is latino or black – it really doesn’t matter
as long as it draws media headlines that injects her lop sided banter.

A real offended ranter, Matt’s mom doesn’t want to come to terms or admit
that the trouble her son was in, may have been behind his own ‘bit.’

I understand the plight of the mom, but wrong is wrong.
When you find out the crime is yours – don’t sing that victim song.

Entitlement runs rampart in this script and is subject to impale
anyone who sides too soon, in an effort avoid a personal fail.

The throws of creating this script must be hell – as it closely parallels real life.
I am thrown with every minute shown; American Crime reflects that trife.

Are you watching yourself? Are you watching the crib?
Are you drooling at the mouth? Do you need a bib?

I’ll get that for you — and off I go
to another show; this DVR is pulling me to and fro

exposing me to no shortage of conflicting banta’ —
with scarf in hand I am tuned-in to the REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA.

The broadcast season is over – still there’s enough left over confusion
that would preface the very reason this show needs an off-season reunion.

Part I. of this 3-part reunion started out on the stage
being hosted by Andy – he’s all of the “reel gossip” rage.

We flipped back and forth through past shows scratching up flakes
of controversy between the women during film and outtakes.

Porshe admitted to “sleeping with a married man” & the benefit of “the gift” reap
when she was out with Claudia and the girls in the Phillipines.

Kandy held up her own when Ne-Ne came at her with “I see you,”
Kandy replied, “We see each other” and that scene was through.

Cynthia looked pretty in part 1 and even though she didn’t say much,
I look forward to part 2 of the reunion and Cynthia yielding a little more love.

She’s beautiful, but not heavy on throwing shade.
Should as much be said about Kenya? God forbade.

I am a fan of Kenya Moore. You don’t have to personally like her.
But she’ll always have a view as long as there’s someone to film and mic her.

She’s way more than a pretty face, a voluptuous pair of girls and a bouyant butt,
Kenya is beautiful, creative, smart, proactive, professional and rough…

when need be,
i.e, when facing Porsha or NeNe.
Ooo wee.

I love ’em all, I really do.
If you get a minute next Sunday – drop on through.
The ladies will be much thicker in reunion – in part deux.

This weekend I worked my way though my DVR list on the double
and ended up laughing at that that duo in THE ODD COUPLE.

Have you been watching Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon?
Clever situational writing is what keeps me grinnin.’

Who knew I’d dig The Odd Couple – it has invoked a thirst
that I knew nothing about during the run of its successful first.

The first Odd Couple television series remains yesterdays beloved hit,
when Jack Krugman portrayed Oscar and Tony Randall birthed Felix.

At the shows conclude I was two years shy of six: broadcast 1970-1975.
The Odd Couple is new to me today. I pray it well on its new thrive.

My DVR is alive and I am diverse in culture in its wake.
I’m Qui
The caught-up she, ready to take on this creative day.
Starting with a )))HUG(( a kiss and a “heyyy!
Have a fantastic, show-stopping day.

Good people know…

RICHARD CABRAL, ELVIS NOLASCO, CAITLIN GERARD, JOHNNY ORTIZ, BENITO MARTINEZ, TIMOTHY HUTTON, FELICITY HUFFMAN, W. EARL BROWN, PENELOPE ANN MILLER

Good people know each other. Good people can’t help the effect
of what happens when they get together on productive terms and connect.

Not exactly highlighting Vernon’s good, a winter series heats us best,
however,  just as we climaxed on Empire, we had a family death.

Vernon Turner took one to the head– ’tis Andre’s wife delivered the blow.
The writers were riding smooth sails then instructed to “make a head roll.”

Lee Daniels didn’t have a problem with it – to keep all characters, I’m sure that he tried.
Malik Yoba said he was shooting episode 12 when he first learned that his character would die.

He died in episode 12 — Talk about an impromptu early retirement.
Malik is good people indeed, he’ll land again in a good environment.

Empire went out pretty good, and Vernon died for no good reason.
Please believe I’m hooked and can’t wait to jam it again next season.

Olivia Pope is good people, the new guy at the bar is the payer.
Olivia is in search of something more, she’s acting as “the role player.”

She’s all dolled up with no conversation, ready to tangle and twist.
I like the cut that Shonda’s giving…a shade of grey is in our midsts.

And then there’s American Crime. Have you been watching this cast at play?
Good people know, that this is the show, and we miss not a broadcasting day.

If you haven’t been watching, lucky you – it’s still quite early,
we’re on episode two, not much back work to do, if you jump on now and hurry.

I’m digging the network’s. TV is quite seasonably greasy.
They’ve got black folks reigning yolks, like living life is easy.

And it can be, if you set life up to allow you the room to grow
and network with the like minded, because Good people know

how to band together and make fantastic things happen.
Shonda and Viola Davis keep #HTGAWM cracking.

Good people know good-and-well that if you get in trouble
your best bet is to call 1-800-Keating on the 911 double.

No need to commit murder, Good people know,
that while living black you’ll attract harrass;
Legal up or to jail you go.

American Crime is a good show of that and Mr. Carter Nix
is currently under lock and key for being in the wrong mix.

He’s the black dude that’s accused of killing Barb and Russ’ son.
I know good people when I see them and most parents are #1.

Matt’s parents represent a demographic, but they don’t represent mine.
John Ridley has it going on in the creation of American Crime.

He’s got my Thursday evening time slot and my viewing attentions;
I couldn’t refuse highlighting this hue – good creation deserves a mention.

Are you watching any of these shows?
I am because Good people know

variety is the spice of life and that, this will never change.
Good people also know, the tide brings and takes shows
they need your viewership to maintain.

To all Good people that I know, I do beg of thee,
to give American Crime a chance to make tv history.

So far, I’m digging all that I see – yippee and yo!
I’m Qui
Watching a little TV, because Good people know…

What’s REEL’y up.
