I am a huge fan of spoken word/poetry and I am glad there is a televised program that show cases all of the talented lyricists that are out there. Since I am a busy college student, there are not a lot of chances for me to get out to the clubs that feature poets, and this show is a great substitute. A few of the Def poets have come to perform at the Univeristy that I attend and they were great.
I have been watching this show since Season 1, thankfully it has made it to Season 5. I am thankfull that HBO has kept this show on the air for this long as judging from the activity on this site for this show, makes me think that not enough people appreciate it.
I think it is one of the better shows out there, when people hear Poetry, they think sissy beatnick stuff, but when I get my friends to watch the show, they are amazed at how some of the poets can move them, it is really quite intense at times. Sure there are some people that shouldn't really be up there, or maybe I just don't get where they are coming from, but that is the beauty of the show, it is inspiring, and everyone may get something different out of it.
