Is Queen Sugar Sweet Enough to Hold My Attention?

18 Sep

UPDATE: November 8th. 

After binge watching all the episodes, I have to admit  I was wrong. I LOVE this show. Give it a chance and let me know what you think! 

 

Just watched the first episode of Queen Sugar.

NOT impressed.

I didn’t identify with any of the characters, and I didn’t feel a vested interest in anything that happened to them. But most importantly, I didn’t find a character I could root for.

When the first episode of Underground aired, it snatched my attention and held it every week; indeed, had me fienin’ for more. I guess I expected the same, if not better with this hyped up drama.

However, I’ve decided I’m going to watch a few more episodes. I won’t write it off yet. After all, I gave Game of Thrones a chance after the first episode where two siblings fornicated (disgusting). But the show turned out to be one of my favorites. I figure if I can give that a chance, I’ll give Queen Sugar a chance. I’ll keep you posted.

Have you seen the show yet? What do you think?
