I thought the "gun thug" thing was a drinking game. If you did take a shot every time you heard "gun thug", you probably needed medical attention.
It's early in the year, but the "gun thug" Olympiad might just be the winner for this year's most beat to death local color phrase that no one, anywhere in this country, uses.
Worst term I've heard on TV since "krunk". Very tinny.
I have to be honest. I wanted very hard to like this show. I was hoping it would take a page from the Breaking Bad playbook and try to explore some modern phenomena.
Instead it just sort of diverged through gaggerific attempts at local color that eventually turned into outright stereotyping.
In total, an unwatchably stupid show that does nothing positive for TV. I'll check back in a few weeks and see if the writing has improved. For now, not anywhere near my list of shows to watch each week.
