Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This dramatic, tension-filled series tells the fictional story of one man's efforts to save himself from a racially corrupt criminal justice system. Rayshawn's experience as a frightened Black man who is trying to prove his innocence to a system that is already stacked against him highlights some of the real-life accusations faced by the New Orleans police department. But while it sends a clear political message -- and despite the impact of social media on the events of the harrowing day -- the overall story doesn't feel particularly new. Nonetheless, #FreeRayshawn is well-produced and well-acted, and offers some binge-worthy entertainment for those who like crime dramas.
