underground s1It is rare I stop watching a television show I enjoy. In the case of WGN’s Underground, I simply can’t handle our nation’s despicable slave story as entertainment. That’s certainly not to say Underground isn’t serious and necessary. It is both. A long-format version of 12 Years a Slave with an outstanding cast and great stories. The treatment – both past and present – of African-Americans in this country continues to be something I believe of importance. For myself personally, I’d rather discuss what I can do to help change the present than watch the past. That’s just me. The series is great. If you’re at all interested in the subject, please check it out. Season 1 is now streaming and on DVD. Best of luck to the producers for many seasons of stories. 4 out of 5.
