Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The smart, female-centered series offers a story world in which women over 40 are able to reclaim themselves in the hip-hop industry. As the women bond, confront old demons, and renegotiate their personal lives, they also highlight some of problems women in the hip-hop industry continue to face, including being exploited by men (particularly White men) for profit, dealing with a prolific drug culture, and ageism. Meanwhile, like any TV primetime drama, Queens also is driven by romance, deceit, and some evil twists. It's meant to be fun, and you can't help feel nostalgic about the late 1990s music scene when you watch Brandy's impressive rapping skills, and Eve and Naturi Naughton's talented performances. But the best part is that it manages to deliver all of this with a refreshingly empowered narrative in which talented, older Black and Latina women are retaking ownership of their lives and their careers.
