I feel exactly as you Luvvie. As painful as it was to watch, we need constant reminders of our reality so we don’t loosen our grip on change. Other than that I felt Verna Sud just wanted to create a tragic finale even though there was enough evidence at least in a Northeastern state to produce guilty verdicts. No fantasy, no bullshit, no mincing of words or ideas….just the ugly face of justice system as it relates to the police and African Americans. This was actually filmed in my neighborhood right outside my building and I saw some of the scenes being filmed. But overall, I truly liked it. I wouldn’t have believed KJ’s case either! Wacky Wordsmith. PISSED. The show is gripping. I loved how the director showed how tragedy can effect faith. He’s distracted when he hits something and his car spins around a couple of time and finally stops. How else do the directors explain the decision to portray a black female prosecutor as so incompetent? Fairy tale endings where positive results are rarely achieved are already present in the lexicon. Check out which shows are most popular at this moment in time. This episode is written by Shalisha Francis and Veena Sud. Anyway…. And then something happened once the show got into the courtroom. Next time the directors should talk to Shonda about portraying black women lawyers who may be flawed personally but know how to handle their business professionally. As stated by Luvvie, still TOO REAL. A new tab will open with the file. Not only do you wanna slap us in the face, but you’re pitting two women against each other AND the white lady wins? It became clear to me at the end that this was about sensationalism and exploitation for ratings. On. I Binge-Watched Seven Seconds on Netflix: My Review. "The Simpsons" is found under "S", All current and ended shows are viewable on these pages. As the trial edges toward its conclusion, KJ and Fish search for a way to hold the defense accountable and Brenton's parents prepare for what's next. I’d only watch this if I was an actress or the like, studying Regina King’s performance. I wonder (again, didn’t watch) if the equation of “oops, I was careless and killed a Black child” and cops killing Black boys (and girls and men and women…) bothered people too. The wig, the wig and the wig..WTH. :o). Then people wonder why Black Panther was such a huge success. Very on point. Even when we’re deeply flawed and broken, we gotta do all we can to fight for them. It felt so real how she vacillated between crippling grief and blinding rage, as a mother who needed answers for why her son Brenton’s life was cut short. Eric. I have followed and stalked you on all social media for a few years now. It showed me the redemption in her character. Regina saves the day as always but I was praying for a better ending. June 8, 2020 . You can view full screen, download, share, and even comment on any photo! From not-quite-right hair to not enough character development, I was drawn in. This is why I haven’t watched Frutvale Station or 12 Years a Slave because I just can’t take heartbreak for entertainment. You are much braver than I, and I sooooo appreciate this review… I’d been vacillating on whether or not I should finish watching, but now I know I don’t have to – and don’t WANT to. I love Regina King but not even she could make me sit through this fiasco again. I knew it would be too real. Come on now! Directors, do better next time when you attempt to tell our story. Thousands of scripts, screenplays and photos. I usually like to finish things I start, and up to episode 6 or 7, I was excited to keep watching. 1) Regina King is THE QUEEN; and, Who is the intended audience? Not because this is unexpected but because this is how it would have played out in real life and I don’t think we needed to see that. I mean, did it have to be that brutal?! We should be assembling the next march or designing more signs for that march. -Here is comes- BUT if we can’t relax and enjoy a dramatized, scripted series what’s the point in watching. IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT AND WANT TO, TURN BACK NOWWWWWWW. 9 months ago. Such a good point this: “By making KJ such a screw-up, the whole point of the movie (the flawed justice system) is lost. It left me feeling empty after all of the buildup. I loved it! This is the same problem I had with Poussey’s death on season 4 of Orange is the New Black. And that’s in the first 10 minutes of the show. Just took their eyes off the morality road for a second? There’s a body there. Seven Seconds (2018) In a world where we just found out that Alton Sterling’s murderer will not even be charged, I didn’t need “Seven Seconds” to proverbially punch me in the face. “It’s because when you are constantly depicted in film as being helpless and powerless then to witness yourself being depicted as kings and queens with power, that speaks to the soul of a person.”, Oh Luvvie, you took the thoughts right out of my head. I have a problem with art that imitates life so well, it leaves us with the message that there is no WINNING. Speaker. Alton. All Rights Reserved. Podcast Host. Professional Troublemaker. I hated the cops, I hated the wives, hated the defense attorney. 2) We are grateful that Luvvie wrote this!!!! I take take fan suggestions - so if you wan't to see a series added to the Fandom.
