Why to Read: There’s so much to love in this pilot. The characters are truly compelling, from Evelyn stepping up to be a leader, to the two teenage boys and their different reactions to their culture, their fathers, and the responsibilities placed on them. The setting is unique and intriguing, while the ominous atmosphere is clearly defined from the beginning. The dialogue is strong, especially Evelyn’s moving final speech. The allegations against Cypress, the desire to open a casino, the political storylines, the basketball – everything is set up for plenty of episodes worth of storytelling that speak to an underrepresented minority community in the United States who deserve to have their story told.
