  • A black criminal gets away with murder, only to kill again(the only person who dared testify against him). Very good for morale!

    Man, get real! Where do these high ratings come from? This episode (the first and only one I've watched) is downright lame. That's right, you heard right, it's lame. Do yourself a favor, and watch it again with an open mind. It is all too obvious that the actors are merely acting. Especially in the use of profanities, the acting is just laughable. You just FEEL that this is not what's happening in real life. Call me a bigot if you must, but I feel the over-the-top high ratings are just there because it is politically correct to rank a show very high that has a 90% black cast. I think the acting is very mediocre. Compare it to the s
    acting in the Sopranos. Notice anything different? If not, this review is not for you...
