Professor Tracey Loves The New HBO Series - The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

I throughly enjoyed the debut of the new Jill Scott series, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency! It was slow as hell and I loved every snail's pace moment. It cracked me up! Jill Scott was great, but Anika Noni Rose was even better.

I can't say how long it has been since I enjoyed watching a show that was not trying to hit you over the head with explosions, nudity, or bloody carnage. What a relief to watch something sappy, sweet, and sassy, all at the same time!

I knew that you would! Watch the HBO back stories on demand!

Funny you use the word "relief"--that was one of my reactions to the program as well. I am sure I am not being as analytic and critical as I could be in my reaction. But right now all I feel is overwhelming contentment that such a program has made it to my TV box.

BTW, I agree about Anika Noni Rose. More than her, though, how wonderful to see the interactions and developing relationship between her's and Scott's character.

watching Anika ut her follow-up Noni Rose, shows a depth of character and acting range, she was clearing overlook in dreamgirls, no slight to Jennifer Hudson, but this performance clearly shows her talent!

LOVED seeing my kin on TV. I will follow th show. Anika was very funny. Jill Scott's acting range has gotten better and she is a very subtle comedian. She is also very good/
