Of course, it helps that it's got Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. They're amazing.
Well. I'm not sure, I'll admit. It's a soap opera set in hip hop, there's no argument there, so it's supposed to be melodramatic and over the top, but I can't say I was that drawn in by any of the three sons as performers. Well, except for the scene where the two younger ones work on the song together. Howard and Henson were great with what they got, but I'm going to need more time to decide if the broad strokes of their characters is enough to suck me in and care.
On the plus side, I had my heart in my throat at the flashback scene of Howard stuffing his gay son in the trashcan. And Howard and Henson have fantastic chemistry. They're going to be fun to watch.
So I'll still watch even though Antoine got killed off. Give it another episode or two to decide whether or not I care.
