Harlem on Prime
Have you ever watched a show and from the start and you felt like you couldn’t put it down, well that was me with this series? It was everything we as humans or women aspire to be vulnerable, charismatic, the ability to chase your dreams, makes mistakes, have friends, have fun, and overall fall in love again with you or someone else. It was the epitome of love what we all wait for, yearn for, and desire to have in life. Now if you haven’t seen it then I’ll try not to spill the beans as much but you know if it is a show I like you getting all the details from my favorite parts. Can we give a shout out to cast pure black excellence and beautiful, it is nothing like seen some good-looking people on your screen?!
Now, I’m jumping half way into the season did I mention it was a series. Yes, for the love of God we all stan a good series because since COVID has happen I have found myself watching an unnecessary amount of TV. Sighs, I don’t do it often but when I do I like to go all out I can’t help myself at times. But let’s start off with the scene where Camille talks about her ex-lover Ian that nigga know he sholl is fine. Child, y’all I only have room in my heart for one light skinned man in my life and that’s my baby daddy. Hey, baby daddy and not my real one I always have to insert that because people be in my business about him. Not today Satan, but when I seen that nigga roll up on the screen I said bitch it’s about to go down. Because I thought he was gone be the heartbreaker could’ve fooled me. A light skinned man with a big heart looking for love.. JESUS
Baby when they linked up and said hello its like the stars just all aligned in one moment in someone eyes talk about chemistry. I just knew in that moment they were going to have sex and by the way they didn’t I said what the hell all this chemistry with no sex yet. Maybe that’s where my mind went in the gutter because unlike you guys, I’m here writing songs about a nigga saying he was gone give me some head. By the way I’m coming to collect on that so pat your kids to sleep because Santa is coming through which that is me. I need it to be a better person I don’t want to throw God in this because, but you do know he do fuck with me like all the time. So, I don’t know how you feel about me being one of his favorites.
But let me continue every time they came had a scene it was like the chemistry was so intense that it made you just want to fall in love, open that DM, text that ex you hate, or hit up that one booty call that you know ain’t no good for you. And let’s not forget the dope as friends she had because friendship has been so slept on this day and age because everybody looking for their person. Not to sound a little oxymoron ish but people really don’t value that anymore the same can be said for sex as well. I mean seriously. Their friendship was the typical love the normal I call you out on your wrongs, you accept, you receive, and we understand. They were all different women with different visons of life, but it never blurred the idea of their friendship. Because they knew they needed each other because each one of them had experienced something one or the other hadn’t.
It wasn’t the I know more than type friendship only in their career field because they dominated in those areas. And let’s not slip on Queen toxic relationship with her mom that it crippled her ability to be happy and chose herself for once because all ole girl wanted was love. She wanted to be noticed, heard, seen, and valued as a person. Not for her accomplishments, accolades, or pleasing mommy and daddy because she came from prestige black family. It was because we as humans need that sometimes. Jesus we already talk about this in black family drama, but this is something that needs to be highlighted a little more. How our moms make us feel inferior to ourselves because we don’t have it all together.
Back in their age people valued marriage, villages, and support because we needed humans and each other but let social media and jaded humans tell you we don’t need nobody. Hey, Alexa play Playa Fly Nobody Needs Nobody. Bull shit do you not see me petitioning for a dog I even had my niece write it on her Santa list so I can get a dog. If this nigga don’t show up I’m officially over believing in his ass because how many damn times he gone let me down. Seriously, at this big age I still believe in Santa Claus a little bit because I believe one day someone will be that for me. It’s those Pisces placements I really have to do better with that shit because the Scorpio in me be like really bitch you are horrible with this shit.
Now, let’s get back to Angie she was a typical dream chaser to busy chasing her old one that she didn’t see that she was making the same mistakes from her past. Allowing her ego to dictate her success based on the approval of other people when she really was the it girl out of all her friends. Shawty basically was and is a force to be reckoned with because she isn’t afraid to go after her dreams no matter if she fails or succeed. It’s just getting a little structure under them feet because your girl knows about this self-destructive tendency I had to unlearn and still is.
Let not forget the fortune 500 CEO black entrepreneur boss Tye who was a lesbian living the life of success and wanted to be feared but also feared it the most out of her friends. Love is what I’m talking about. Shawty had a million excuses on why love wasn’t enough for her but found many way of seeking it out whether it was through making more money or meaningless sexual flings that ended up with her being the boss. I was kinda shocked by the end but it didn’t take me for surprise because she hid behind strong too much out of all of her friends. Note she said a valuable point when she said we lesbian aren’t your thrill-seeking opportunity for your curiosity moments. I said you go off bitch state how you feel. And I forgot to add on that Angie has a sexual fling and catches feelings for a bisexual man.
