Deception has officially been the biggest waste of my time since Person of Interest.
Here are some things I've learned from this show:
1) Black actresses, just 'cause its "your" show doesn't mean it's your show. You can still be a token guest star on "your" show. You can be cast as the star, put in all the promotional posters, and given a (hopefully) fat check...and still be an afterthought on "your" show.Season 1 ended on a hack version of a cliffhanger, no doubt in some desperate attempt to get renewed. Mm-hm. If there were ever a show which needed to be canceled and forgotten about completely, it doth be this one:
2) Sex, lies, murder, theft, and substance abuse are officially played out. This is 2013; we're not shocked or intrigued by this type of stuff anymore. So if you think this is going to add gravity and dimension to a show...um, no.
3) Whoever keeps casting and writing these BWWM couples on these shows needs to get it right
because Wes Brown is fucking dogly and not worthy of Meagan Good. Watching them kiss made my stomach churn every time. A woman doesn't leave Laz Alonzo for Wes Brown. I know white folks would love to believe that myth, but it's just not so. Luka Šulić? Possibly. Tom Felton? Definitely. But Wes Brown? That would be like leaving Rain for Justin Timberlake.
4) Meagan Good looks fierce no matter what she wears. That woman is a bona fide Helen of Troy.
5) Last but not least, until white folks get it right, they need to stay faaaaaar a way from writing Black characters.
