Black Girls' Night Out: Linden & Phillips Screen Caps

I haven't forgotten about these two.  But Season 2 of Franklin & Bash just ended, I'm way out of the loop, and so in order for me to do my week by week chronicling, we'll have to wait until next year, when Season 3 premieres.  In the meantime, I'm renting the DVDs from Netflix so I can do as many high quality screen caps as possible.

The reason for this is simple; I'm getting tired of struggling to find pictures of some of these Black actresses (especially in character) on Google.  They're not getting nearly enough exposure or support.  Somewhere, some black girl is trying to write some quality fanfic about Hannah Linden and Carmen Phillips, but she doesn't have enough images to work with.

In short, I'm trying to create a digital library of these two. Each picture is carefully labeled so that they're easy to find in search results and they're all fair game.  Enjoy and expect many more to follow!

  1. Such beauties! Good job. An image library is a very good thing for this website.

  2. I was the one who e-mailed you last year about these two ladies with major supporting roles n FRANKLIN and BASH and recommended that you watch it.

    I watched the first season and hoped that they would have more screen time in Season 2.

    No, their screen time was decreased in Season 2. Truthfully, I stopped watching halfway because it was so disappointing.

    Garcelle Beauvis recently revealed that the executive producers decided not to renew her contract for Season 3, so Hannah Linden is gone.

      I must've totally forgotten (I get a gazillion recommendations, ideas, requests a day) because I saw an ep with my mom by accident and that's what caught my attention.

    2. Ah, ok, cool. I think that it may have been this June or July...who knows whether the e-mail even was delivered to you.

      Regardless, the first half of Season 2 was disappointing, and it is annoying that Garcelle has been dropped from the show. Her character could have been developed much better because there was potential.

    5. *le sigh* At least we still have 'Suits', and the lovely Gina Torres. USA would be nuts to let her off the show.

      And why did they have to put Garcelle with the fuglier of the pair? >_<

    6. Breckin Meyer is a cutie! He's a pygmy, which I totally respect.

  3. Im glad that I never got to see the series. I would have been disappointed not seeing Garcelle on there. As a whole, I guess that is why I don't watch that much TV. If they're not bombarding it with senseless reality shows, they're too busy getting rid of the ones that quality minority actors/actresses on them. Good programs aren't going to last too long on TV, crap ones will last for eternity.

    1. She's a officially a Lure. She helps build up the diverse audience, and then gets axed.

  4. Damn it! They would get rid of Garcelle right when I was getting ready to start watching it. This is another show that I didn't bother to even start watching because once again, the execs decided not to include the WOC in their promos for the show. I would've been watching it had I known. I think they shoot themselves in the foot all the time with that crap decision. But they keep on doing it anyway.

    1. I know, right? I already put Season 1 in my Netflix queue and was going to do the same for 2 when it came out.

      *shakes head*

      Now it's going to be just another show I ignore.
