| Sooo disappointed
I had so much anticipation for this show, loved the topic and assumed that with the caliber of actors cast it would be awesome. Instead, the writing is so awful that there are almost no characters...just caricatures of (I'm guessing) what white writers think black people are like. If I was black I would be offended. Since I am white I am instead embarrassed to the point of cringing. I can think of no excuse for the shallow, stereotype-ridden scripting of this show.

The plot line is believable enough but the actual dialog written is so weak I can't fathom how the scripts made it past whoever is paid to quality-check them. I truly hope that someone with some influence in the background will heed what is being said about the writing and hire some better writers Immediately! Of course, since the show is already on the air there must be quite a few episodes (if not all) of season 1 already completed. If it doesn't get pulled and comes back for a second season I will watch to see if anyone bothered to try to do the show's concept the much better treatment it deserves.

I do like the music and find the two musician brother's characters and acting to be believable...but that's all that's good about this show so far. Not gonna cut it without some serious changes happening to the writing.
