Now this is the kind of treatment Taraji P. Henson deserves. (Okay, I wish her costar was pretty much anyone else, but what the hell, I’ll take it.) Saw the billboard for her new show at 285 northbound right before the Lavista exit. Wanted to get a picture, but I was driving. I’m planning to get Whit to take me back down there so I can shoot it properly.
I’m really looking forward to this show, and I know it’s a hit. Yeah, her costar is a jerk, and I loathe hiphop, but at least he’s a talented jerk. And, of course, Taraji is unbelievably awesome. People are still talking about her last role a year after she left!!! And she had no screen time on that show that shall remain nameless. There seems to be lots of opportunities for high-drama and carpet chewing scenes. If they play it right this could be a lot of fun.
And as long as the executive producer doesn’t overindulge in his unfortunate proclivity for torturing black women that should be all good. Hey, show runner, word to the wise, she’s already been to prison, that’s enough pathology porn. Now I want to see a black woman getting her own back. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Good morning Ms. Roslyn,
I’m with you, I’ll certainly be watching this one with my girl in it. I can’t wait. I may even take a ride on 285 myself so I can see the billboard. I think that is fantastic. Thanks for the tip. I haven’t watched that show (the one that will remain nameless) since she left. As a matter of fact, she was one of the reasons I tuned in every week. It had actually grown on me. Once she left, I was not so interested anymore. I am glad to see her back in mainstream. She is very talented.
I hope this show turns out good and that it does not get screwed by the network like so many other promising shows on FOX.
