NEWS PERUSE – Entertainment Hues

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on November 23, 2020 at 6:40 am

The weekend was swell; the weekend went hard. Raise your hand if you watched the American Music Awards?

It aired last night, but I saw none, — I was deep into short film reviews and app-streaming sums.

It has to be done; someone has to watch all of the indie submits.  Most are creative and well crafted – I fall for dialogue and quips.

Action films are a hit and new series’ can “free time impale.”  Speaking of, I heard we may soon have a serial “Waiting to Exhale.”

Had you heard? Porsha Williams DISH‘ed out the word.

You guys know that I love la Bella Porsha; she is a real ride-or-die. — So, Mr. Daniels, if you’re reading this, “please send Porsha “Robin Stokes’ sides.”

Porsha feels confident that she could play the part well.
Doesn’t everyone love a Cancer with a soft shell?

The Zodiac, Cancer – not the illness.
More diverse roles for Porsha is my multimedia request.

Missy Elliot always hails “best” when I think of random acts of kindness, — via a Twitter post, she was invoked to buy a bride-to-be’s wedding dress.

We all must support our lacking community.

It’s imperative we look past imperfections and towards unity.

That is the goal.

The FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR’s cast reunion is healing gold.

If unity was a tangible product, 4-days ago it was sold.

Well, Lil Nikki grew up but he still looks the same,
the size of his clothes is all that has changed.

The reunion was recollection-amazing.
The 80’s television industry did a lot of raising —

and I am so grateful for that.
Didn’t see it? Go ‘head and run it back.
You can find The FRESH FAM on HBO Max.

Good Monday morning, kinfolk, and how do you do?
It’s day 1 again. What have you got planned for you?

Will unity in the community show up and come through?

Wide awake and up for a “give & take” with your Entertainment News Peruse.

Good people know…

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.

NEWS PERUSE – Glued To The Tube

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 20, 2015 at 9:37 am

Cute Guys glued to the tube

I know your television has been on – what have you been watching?
I keep the DVR full, I’m always show clocking.

I’m into #HTGAWM and la bella Analise. You may have heard of her?
She’s that chocolate chic, whose knowledge is thick on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

how to get away with murder FLIRTABC is out of control, they’re demanding my attention without cessation.
I know I am not alone based on the viewer alert tones I receive from FB nation.

If you are watching this show, then you know that we’re down to the wire,
the season finale is soon to come, yet, so many irons are still in the fire.

The creation and writing fulfills my desire to get more from “my comfy-couch time”.
Shondra Rhimes is growing a “David E. Kelley vine” and yields a great deal of my sunshine.

I love it, still my DVR has many slots available – increasing my capacity for “handle,”
so dare I miss an episode of Olivia Pope and them folk on ABC’s SCANDAL?

scanal FLIRTI shall not. The writing is hot and I do dig it very much.
I’ve got a thing for Hulk ‘ – because he’s got that “down-for-Liv” love.

Ride or die. Hulk said he’s a rider now, and that he is no longer “the killer.”
Still, the way he chooses to incapacitate one – belongs in a psycho thriller.

He’s the real deal’a, yo – and I can respect that.
NEW 411: I’ve got eyes for Mary Jane’s new cat.

BEING MARY JANE can’t be easy,
but a ride on her latest boy toy ‘sho makes it look breezy.

 

You can B.E.T. me every Tuesday from 8-9, because I will be in the cut.
The writers of #BMJ have got-it-going-on in scribbling out “grown folks stuff.”

Being Mary Jane w Brandon

Unfortunately, Mary Jane and Brandon don’t talk much…

 

I tend to like it rough and they don’t sugar coat too much.
I love that they encompass a lot of insight: the good, the bad, the love…

I’d love to give Mara Brock a big ol’ )))HUG(((!! I appreciate her
for contributing to facilitating our cheesy sitcom past – into a blur.

empire FLIRTThen there’s that awesome hustle and flow of business and lyrical fire —
that exists within the hip hop frames of Lucious and Cookies EMPIRE!

The writing on this show calls out and really speaks to me;
birthed from the same hands as The Butler – it’s the handy work of Lee.

Lee Daniels is the creator of this show and he did not at all miss
when he ‘took it to the head’ and casted Henson and Howard in the mix.

The other actors in the cast roster, are largely faces I do not know,
and that’s part of the hook that keeps me glued to this action-packed show.

The music is pretty good too. The score is composed by sir Timbaland.
He produced Missy Elliott and the sill beloved Alliyah. Remember them?

Blackish-PosterThen there’s the creator of that show BLACK’ISH – he’s got his hands full pulling this duty.
He’s taken-on introducing blacks to the world, via Anthony Anderson and Tracie Ellis’ booty.

Kenya Barris has once again proven that when it comes to show producing – he can do it.
I learned about this show via Exec. Prod. Larry — from The Daily Show with Stewart.

Speaking of Jon Stewart — he’ll be ending his show’s broadcast this year.
The man who divvied us the 411 via laughter-to-tears.

It’s been real funny, indeed. May his exit cause no lumps in the throat;
let us move on and laugh well with those folk on FRESH OFF THE BOAT.

My brief research on the shows creator left me feeling diversely strong –
the creator crafted this from a life of his own: the creator’s name is Eddie Huang.

FOTBI’m a passenger watching #FOTB and I must say based on the noted behaviors,
I have duly been missing out on laughing with my Asian neighbors.

My direct neighbors are of Asian decent and from 3-years passed to this day,
We are cool, with no friction to invoke fool — everyday we just smile and wave.

Digging Eddie Huang’s mind, makes me want to interact with them more.
This is a direct cause and effect from televisions diversity score.

I love it – I love it! Therefore, I remain intently in tune,
I’m Qui
