Not your typical black comedy/drama
21 November 2002 | by desert_babySee all my reviews

I have thoroughly enjoyed this programme & i feel that it goes from strength to strength. The first series really set the basis but the second series has been brilliant. I have been hooked! I think that they could develop Johnny's character a bit because he has been having a bit of a hard time lately, perhaps he deserves it. I think Beres is a bit of a dark horse & i cant wait to see what happens with Gus & his gal!!! This series is dealing with real issues, not what a lot of people see as 'typical' black men with involvement in drugs & men with no jobs. All in all, black comedy/drama doesn't have to be full of pa'tois to entertain & this series just goes to show that.
