'Gun Hill' is wholly entertaining and it will be great to see it go to series.

I definitely listen to more Pebbles than TLC in 2013. The beloved girl group took over my developing years, oversaturated the radio, and wore me the hell out. Plus, I really only love their first two albums, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip and CrazySexyCool. Still, I was super hype to see VH1 and the surviving members share their version of this phenomenon known as TLC and the trip down memory lane was quite a ride.

Review: Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Other Drama - 'Dancing On The Edge' Of Invisibility (Premiered 10/19)

“I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie extoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination—indeed, everything and anything except me.” - Ralph Ellison Last night, Saturday, 19th October at 10pm ET/PT, Starz Network aired the US premier of BBC produced drama 'Dancing On The Edge' starring leading man of the hour Chiwetel Ejiofor. Cunning timing on the part of the network; capitalizing wisely off the weekend US box office frenzy expected to crown Ejiofor's latest cinematic venture, the much anticipated (& tirelessly debated, if you've been paying any attention to the S&A boards this past year) '12 Years A Slave.' But, a cautionary word to the excited. 'Dancing On The Edge' may well leave you teetering on an edge - the edge of reason.

The past haunts two former members of the Black Panther Party, in this soulful drama by writer/director Tanya Hamilton, in which the burden lies in the decision to either continue fighting the old fight, or just simply live and survive.
