Premium TV shows... Chapelle show was sketch comedy. Boondocks was a cartoon. Cosby show ended 30 years ago
You just mentioned some trash white comedies that are only staples because media was monopolized at the time.

There have been plenty of black shows with substance that are alot better but they get shut down. Nothing you can do but get private investors and put out shows independently

I was nervous about how they would portray Malcolm. But they have given him a nice balance. I'm also glad they are not sugarfooting with the mafia dudes being racist. I always have a problem with blacks idolizing mafia gangsters, when in truth they hated the sh*t out of black people.

Insecure is 1. What black shows that are good that have substance on primetime tv that's known to the masses. I'm not talking Queen Sugar or Tyler Perry sh*t...we had shows like Cosby, Martin, A Different World, Family Matters...none with that impact anymore

That's Hollywood, what else do you expect? Find some black actors working on a project you would like to see and donate to it. Lose expectations and do for self

Tired of these shows where the blacks folk are always criminals. It's too many out. Empire, The Chi, Snowfall, This show, Power. I mean come on, where are the cold black shows like Seinfeld, Friends, s*x and the City, Cheers, etc. Not talking Tyler Perry shows or all the soft abc, nbc shows either. I'm talking primetime premium cable shows
Come to think about it. I only watch white criminal shows too Mr robot, better call Saul, breaking bad, peaky blinders

Can you recommend some shows. All my favorite show take 2 years to drop another season.

Better Call Saul, walking dead, Atlanta, super natural are some of my favorites. I want to watch the wire but I think i messed that up because I watched alot of the best moments of YouTube already. My co worker recommended True Detective and says it's a really great show and probably be the next show I binge...


...
to me the shield is better than them all.
when you watch it from start to finish its really dope.
everything revolves around and is tied back to that very first episode.

the season with anthony anderson and glenn close is better than anything Ive seen on tv.

There's only two episodes out, wtf you talking about?

So far first two episodes are dope as fu*k, but I can see this going 5 seasons, since by the time he got out of jail in 63, he was dead by 68.

Atlanta is the only one that I can think of now that you mention it.

Maybe Blackish but I've never seen it.

I feel you on not watching shows. I use to see wonder how my Old Man watched The Wire, Sopranos, Chapelle and all those shows when they first aired because I prejudged them in passing to be corny and boring without ever giving them a shot. I was a damn fool and

About 2 years ago a friend of mine convinced me to watch Breaking Bad and it's been a wrap since. I missed out on a lot of dope stuff at the time on the other hand I don't gotta wait a week to see the next episodes.

The Wire, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The CHI, ATL, Ozark pretty much the only shows I've seen since Bernie Mac and the original Boondocks went off. Whether it's a movie or show I like to watch stuff that's a reflection on reality with unpredictable plot twist, just gotta have some substance to it.

I know one day I'll give Walking Dead, Game of Thrones etc. a chance cuz' I'm sure they're probably good due to how much I hear about them but if yall know some gems like the shows listed above put me on game.

Breaking bad is my all time favorite and I just rewatched it last month and it was even better than I remembered. Whenever I watched game of Thrones it only made me want to play Skyrim and never made it pass the first episode. But will let this season to finish to check out the show in the op.

Also season three's? I noticed some shows seem to take a dive after season three. Sons of anarchy and Dexter are two I can name. And although I finished both series it seems like the director wants to switch things up and everything just seems forced after that...

For example, a significant death happened at the end of the season, so Im thinking surely this would cause the son to form his own group (in which the show has been obviously building towards) but first episode of season 4 everybody just sitting around like nothing happened...
