Spoiler: Lena Waithe’s New Showtime Series The Chi Already Looks Like a Must-Watch
great use of vibrant colours in the trailer. If I can remember that I have Showtime or not I'd watch
You Can Watch The Premiere of Showtime's The Chi Right Now
Alex Hibbert as Kevin, THE CHI
Lil dude lineup is super trash tho
How is it?
the wire 2.0 just a different city
Its kinda like enough shows about black pain but its gripping still
I'm in now after this first episode
Jason Mitchell hats off
Caught the pilot also and damn Lena didn't waste no time getting to it. Great first episode.
yea I saw her at the Emmy's for some show called master of none
This my first time seeing her work but I'm impressed
Oh yea kima
I think might be the first time i seen her since the wire
TV Show Throws Out Dumpster Full Of Food — While Filming In A Food Desert
People living in a "food desert" in North Lawndale hoped they'd be able to get basic necessities from a new corner store (left). But the store ended up being a TV set, and this week the set dumped its props — including food and cleaning supplies -- into the garbage.
welp was a good first ep
dont know how i feel about watching it now
pilot was good, can't wait til january for this
That food dumping is crazy and f'd up. You been using it for half the year and can't even donate to those who need it? Especially now...
You should really watch Master of None
yea it in the back log tryna finish this top of the lake season 2 but i cant get past ep1
Really good pilot
want to see how the season / series plays out since it's only one truly interesting character IMO ( the Chef)
Definitely it's own show not like the Corner and damn sure not the Wire
Idk why ppl are comparing this to the wire, i enjoyed the pilot but if any show is more like the Wire its The Deuce
damn you really aint see no similarities tho
its its "own" show sure
but i thought it was hella "in vein" with the wire
Just saw the first ep. Nothing like The Wire imo.
Its vaguely similar in that it covers the storiss of multiple characters from children to grown folk. But hell, a lot of shows did that.
Anyway, it was a good first ep. The cycle of killing was pretty ****ed up. Although, I don't feel bad for the kid given the scumbag move he pulled.
Marking my spot in this thread. About to check out the first episode right now.
As a South Sider, didn't like the sensationalized, forced campy drama of the pilot.
Yeah they really did dive right away in to some stereotypes and cliches but it was handled/executed well.
Official premiere tomorrow
Having watched the pilot, I might have a hard time watching Shameless and this at the same time and look and take Shameless somewhat seriously. I know it's a comedy, but it's a reality based comedy and the tone of that vs The Chi are polar opposites in the same part of the city. Crazy how Showtime did this, but we'll see how it goes.
I think cuz Shameless is Shameless that it'll be fine for me.
It takes place in the same city but not the same neighborhood.
