This is getting really really good I love this show

Well, this was a complete waste of time...

Thats a lot of the N word! Like in 10 times a minute... It's so weird that it is offensive when other people say it, but when you are black its okai. This is just weird to me and I can't stand it, and it makes it unwatchable for me, sorry! Edit: The last thing I want to say about it is: Or EVERYBODY is allowed to say it, or NOBODY is allowed to say it. Not some people do and some people don't! Its racist when a non black person is saying it. Well its also racist when other skin colors aren't allowed to say it based on their skin color. So lets just all stop saying it instead... End of story.

Missed opportunity. It could've been more grounded and naturalistic a la Straight Outta Compton, but it feels polished and contrived instead. The music, specifically, feels as if it is shoehorned in a gangster narrative. It needed better writers, I think, or experienced showrunners.

This show was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!! As someone who is a huge hip hop head and not the knowledgable on all things Wu-Tang, this show was perfect in every way as you see how closely the members of the group were involved with it and all of the acting is just so perfect throughout the series. I wish it was more accessible in the UK as it took me a while to track down this show and actually get to watch it. Season 1: The story of this season is how each person in the Wu-Tang Clan became who they are in the group, all the backstory is done so perfectly with even a few emotional moments in this first season. By far my two favourite actors and characters in the show was Ashton Sanders (Bobby Diggs / RZA) & Siddiq Saunderson (Dennis 'D-Love' Coles / Ghostface Killah) who just steal the entire show and I believe these characters fully and you want to see them succeed. I think the best episode is definitely Labels, it shows how music labels/production companies actually treat young talent and shows why a lot of artists are almost formulaic as they just want to process everything to make the most money. Also, this episode is almost a masterclass in storytelling from a single character's point of view as each chapter of the episode looks like a one-take and causes you to feel exactly the same way as Bobby Diggs in the episode, the direction from Tara Nicole Weyr needs to be praised for this episode and I hope we get another episode like this in Season 2. I cannot wait for Season 2 and please if Hulu is reading any of these reviews, please fight for Hulu to be in the UK.

Renewed for season 2!!!! Yes!

This is another chamber for all the Wu heads to enter from the most respected and influential hip hop collective of all time. and for all other casual viewers, a great work of art.

Really great show but anyone looking to start it, it’s complete waste of time because for some reason they canceled the show & season 1 leaves you hanging. Don’t even brother.

Dave East is too Dave East to be Meth Tical and the guy that plays Rza grew up nowhere near a hood. Ya boy does a pretty good Raekwon though.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
