Love Jones for the small screen
21 June 2018 | by Billy D.-2See all my reviews

Finally a series for us without the typical stereotypes you see everywhere else. It refreshing to have a show that actually has a exceptional writing team that construct a story enjoyable without resorting to low brow gags. Since I am only basing this on the 1st episode, who I won't be disappointed.
