The debut of American Gangster!!!
« on: November 20, 2006, 12:00:21 am »
I can't wait to see the first episode of American Gangster. I thought the first one would focus on Bumpy Johnson or Nicky Barnes, but I'll see the one with Stanley "Tookie" Williams.

That's what DVRs are for.  ;)

I have to remember to record this. And please no anti BET rants. White Folks glorify and profile and do case studies on high profile criminals all the time. Sometimes I think some folks want tv to be a whole bunch of shows of people feeding the homeless and curing all the world ills while wearing dashikis. I mean that's all well and good but how realistic is that. Dang where did that rant come from. :D ahem. Looking forward to the show.

I was expecting to see this on Wednesday and instead saw an offering of Classic Comicview. Hopefully, the show comes on next Wednesday. I wish I had itunes.

The episode on Stanley "Tookie" Williams really surprised me. Who would've thought that a gangbanger like him was on The Gong Show. It's a shame he didn't pursue a career in show business. He would've probably still been alive and out of prison if he did.

I'm still waiting to see an episode on Ellsworth "Bumpy" Johnson but the thing is how many people that Bumpy ran with are still around?
