I love this new show!
15 September 2016 | by turnerdelores-09139See all my reviews

I have already sent out a message to friends that this is a show to watch. If you missed the first 3 episodes, then spend some time binge watching them. You'll be glad that you did. I like it much better than "Greenleaf" which is also on the Oprah network. I give it 2 thumbs up!

The only "star" that I was familiar with on "Queen Sugar" is Dondre Whitfield from the old "Cosby Show'. He's all grown up and is quite handsome. I wasn't familiar with either of the two female leads, but they are really enjoyable to watch. I hope that white audiences will give this show a chance, but most intelligent African-Americans will enjoy and be proud of the terrific writing and directing.
