Yes, I'm late on this, but I never bothered to watch the series; and I was only just reminded of it because of an ad that kept popping up on almost every Facebook page I clicked on today, so I thought, hmm, maybe the ad is trying to tell me something, so I clicked on it and remembered... oh yeah, there's a reason why I wanted to check out this series... because there are black people in its starring cast.
