The other day I had a couple of quiet hours alone
so I kicked back and put channel 279 on.

I have DIRECTV, so that channel is OWN
and the drama that resonated was good to the bone.

GREENLEAF is the show and though its coming to a close – its first season,
It’s PRIME SOAP and melanin dope;  the cast of players yield familial reason.

There’s Lynn Whitfield, Keith David, Lamman Rucker and Tye White
as well as Kim Hawthorne, Merle Dandridge and Madam “Oprah” Dynamite.

The familial situations and the scrip writing is out of sight.
I watched a couple of episodes back-to-back that night

and easily so.
It was so good that I absolutely couldn’t let go.

So I watched
and tick tock went the clock

as the Bishops family fell apart…
this, in the first seasons start.

greenleaf-bishop-1st-ladyGREENLEAF is the family, their faith and professions are in the church.
Prayer is hailed for healing – they pray for others, but they, themselves, are hurt.

Keith David is the Bishop, you remember him from SOMETHING ABOUT MARY?
The way this man transitions in roles is quite believable and errily scary.

He plays his part as if he’s playing no part at all;
his house of clergy is exposed and threatens to fall.

Lynn Whitfield is the Bishops wife and first lady. She’s classy from A to Z.
She walks soft, but you can tell she’s the domestic boss and reigns proper in her scenes.

Ooo y’all! Please tell me that I’m the last one to find this gem.
I pray that you’re watching, I love the scripted hymns.

If this show were not so fantastically WRITTEN we could call this a reality show.
In the face of the truth kudos to the writing team. I’m hooked and ready to go…

find this series in satellite broadcast do a religious re-run
because this season is “already in progress” and is almost done.

Catching up can be fun and on DirecTV it’s free.

Dying on The Young and The Restless

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 15, 2015 at 2:13 pm

soap-and-bubblesSo are we in the midst of some sort of cast member shake upor what? In the last few months we have lost the following characters in script: Austin (Summer’s brief husband), Courtney (Noah’s brief fiance) and Kelly [Stitch’s sister & Jacks brief ex-gf]. What in Sam Hill is going on?

Yesterdays broadcast displayed a surreal view of Jack marrying Phyllis while simultaneously under kidnap by… Kelly.

Yes! I know I said Kelly was dead in the first paragraph but the script keeps flipping post every affectionate gesture that Jack yields to Phyllis.

Yes! Jack and Phyllis were married a day ago and are now on their honey moon in some remote area and it seems that every time Jack kisses Phyllis or strokes her hair, the next moment shows him in wrist and ankle restraints in a similar room on a much shabbier bed with a gag in his mouth and he is yelling for help.

What the….?

Yep. That’s exactly what I’ve been saying over the last few days: “WT?,” and today hasn’t made me feel any more secure about any role being safe on my soaps. I do, however, have an additional “under the radar” concern about Kyle (Jack & Diane Jenkins son). Kyle just keeps showing up at the most odd and opportune times. He’s nowhere and everywhere with no alibi and hailing innocence. No one is that lucky or unlucky, so what are his intentions, motives and angles?

Is there any literal connection between Jacks turmoil’s and Kyle’s suspiciousness? Seems like a question out of the blue, but is it? I mean, currently in script these two guys are rogue. Jack appears to be living 2 different consciouses and Kyle seems to be a part of everyone’s sub-story. What are the writers up to? I’m Young, I’m Restless and I’m quite curious as to where this storyline is going and why the cast purge is so momentous?

I’d ask Lily or Devon ‘what’s up?,’ but they’re storyline is laying pretty low
after Hillary slept with Dad and son, writers are stumped on ‘where to go.’

Black folks can be quite dirty, but it’s not an easy write.
Daytime soaps are best served to the curb by our fam that is white.
The Black soaps rule the night via Tyler Perry. Right?

It’s quite the viewing delight and the storylines are best under stress,
I’m Qui
Glad to be alive to write and not Dying on The Young and Restless.

PS — While the cast line is starting to look barron
Police Chief Paul is focused on arresting Sharon.
