Here's the second episode of Milk & Honey, a web series we've been following since its inception that seems to be building a solid and loyal following. 

The series was created by Chicago natives Brown Paper Dolls (Dana Gills, Asha Kamali May, and Jeanette McDuffie), and centers on four black women living in Los Angeles, who are on “spiritual, professional and romantic journeys to make their dreams reality.”

It stars Lance Gross, Faune Chambers, Bryce Wilson, Debbie Allen and newcomers Yaani King, Shauntay Hinton, Charles Divins and Rob SmithIdris Elba is on board as an executive producer.

If you missed it, the first installment is embedded beneath episode 2.

    I just saw this for the first time and i gotta say i wouldnt mind seeing some more...even Some of the things yall are true i gotta remind you that this is a less than 15 minute thing so yeah they could go into depth to explain the characters but it would kind of be difficult... Maybe as it goes on it will give more explanation... Anyway i kinda of like it.... :)

    So I finally saw these 2 episodes. It's incredible - and quite bewildering - to see all the talent behind and in front of the camera, and yet be lost and/or frustrated as to what to feel, or what to get from the stories. The leading ladies are impressive - in their style, their collected resources, their on-camera rapport as friends (also as roommates or relatives?), the professional support. But the slick aesthetic & jump-cut editing alternately fights & supports with the vacuous storytelling (the dialogue got my . I want to care about these (aspiring?) sistahs but I come out with "meh" and "so what". I hope they can work this out soon; the work is being put in for sure.

    "The writing is vague, incohesive, and lacks specificity; everything is so surface. You can't rely on a pretty picture and a really good song to tell your story. Like, seriously now, what is the point of the show, what is so special about these characters, what connects them, what do they really want, WHO ARE THEY?" ~ Akimbo " Am I unknowing how to deal with webisodes or what?? Please riddle me this. ~ Mel Grayson *STOP* I had similar concerns so I went looking for answers. Well, this is obviously a "chick flick", and, some of the chicks in this flick are behind this web-series, sitting in several chairs, i.e., co-producers and directors and writers. And, are also in front of the camera! Those dual roles, responsibilities and "LUXURIES" can blind (and hinder) the creative process... if you know what I mean? You know... "It's my party so..."

    What? In the last episode the actress didn't get in the acting class because she was (truly) terrible and couldn't remember the three sentences she chose to be her "monologue." It doesn't look like she's just auditing that nonsensical class (when do they start acting?), it looks like she's in it.

    I'm starting to think this show is just a beautifully shot excuse for the leads to make out with hot dudes.

    The writing is vague, incohesive, and lacks specificity; everything is so surface. You can't rely on a pretty picture and a really good song to tell your story. Like, seriously now, what is the point of the show, what is so special about these characters, what connects them, what do they really want, WHO ARE THEY? The acting is serviceable - I don't know if no one pops because every character has the same nondescript personality or because of the actors themselves- but any time someone has to say more than three sentences in a row, it sounds like they're just reading a grocery list.

    They need to either put some serious work into the story/writing/plotting, or release the fabulous Debbie Allen so she can work on a project worthy of her. Clearly a lot of money went into this and some good connections are being exploited to create it; I expect more from a production of this caliber.

    Geez, how does one follow this??!! All the stories just skip from one to another with no finalization of the storyline? Am I unknowing how to deal with webisodes or what?? Is this the way they're supposed to be??? Please riddle me this.

    The intro editing needs to be on the beat. Almost there! Okay, now I'm going to watch...

    It's not bad. The main draw for me is the character Nia because she has he most conflict... to me.
