Trailer: https://youtu.be/tgrx0F6G2bA

First episode: https://tinyurl.com/y979jhrf

Pilot officially airs on the 7th. But apparently it leaked online already so I included a link for it.

I think the show has major potential. Really enjoyed the pilot. Think some of you guys will as well.

Gave in and watched the 1st episode....it has potential....just have to wait and see how the story develops and all the characters intersect. I had assumed Coogie was going to be a long term character for most of the episode.

My favorite character has to be Papa (Shamon Brown Jr.)!

I'm watching. I have it on record.

So many characters to follow. So many plots. Street life, business ventures, baby mama drama, teenage complications, gangstas, murder, religion.

@adkindo I with you on Papa. He's smart. Not only street but book wise. Coogie's death is the connector. It's entwined somewhere in all the story lines.

Watched the finale tonight. Drama. Lot's left to bring in a new season. It's been renewed. I'll be on the look out.

yeah, felt more like a mid-season break than a season finale.

Maybe he's not copping to murder?

Guessing due process.

I enjoyed the first season for the most part. I was hoping the show would have higher stakes though.
Maybe more criminal activities and more policing activities. Like the Deuce on HBO.
