Anika_Noni_Rose_Peabody_2010_(cropped)Disclaimer:  Ok, OK! So I am almost a year late since it premiered. I know, but I am a working Mom and some of us binge watch when we can!

I just wanted to share that I really like this show.  Real talk…I was nervous because some times BET has great intentions, but overacting, predictable storylines or casting errors make me grab the remote quickly! Anika Noni Rose is already our first black Disney princess, now she is a flyy HBCU president. Yassss!

I am really enjoying actors cast for this series.  Like a modern day, edgy Different World, I see the potential for lots of people to get roles.  Mainstream Hollywood often shuffles the same small group of black faces.  I do not want to give too much away.  On one episode, I was shocked to see Directed by Eriq LaSalle, just to name one name you may be surprised to see.  Basically, I can tell The Quad is going to bring us the goods.

Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, January 23rd on BET (see your local listing for times).  Check it out if you haven’t already.  If you have seen season 1, leave your comments below.  Xoxo
