I wish they had something like that, but with Ol' Dirty Bastard in it. (Man I wish he was still around. R.I.P. ODB)

 

Redman or the GZA would be good cats to cast in a show like that. Or Slick Rick. That be epic. He's OG.

I just don't like 50.

yo every body needs to get on "Rectify" ASAP. first season's up on netflix, second season's going down right now on sundance.

 

Best new show since Breaking Bad in my opinion. It's a little heavy duty (deals with a dude who was on death row for 20 years and gets his sentence vacated due to DNA evidence) but it's got some of the most amazing acting, it's a very subtle, awesome show.

it's a little slow moving, but well worth it. It took me a few episodes to really get into the swing of it, plus I wasn't sure it'd come back after the first season so I was less invested. great writing, direction, visuals. And if you know anything about the prison system or are curious about things like the morality of the death penalty, institutionalization, etc. The main guy delivers oscar caliber performances in most episodes, and pretty much the entire cast is full of incredibly well-rounded characters.

 

Sunny I think you'd like it based on your prefs. 

 

Really looking forward to 'The Knick' too

Yeah I'm all about this show at the moment. Been watching it weekly since the start of the first season. good shit. Only small gripe is it gets a bit god preachy mid way through the first season but once you push past that stage it's dope. Season 2 is crazy good (so far)! Pretty slept on from what I can gather but it's great!

 

If you guys want a good crime series check out 'Line of Duty' only 1 (short) season, british, but show's amazing! Trust me, just watch the first ep and you'll be hooked.

 

'Utopia' (especially season 2, so far) is also some good watching.

 

Trying to come at you guys with some not so obvious recommendations.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'm now officially going to watch every single episode of Black Jesus.
