Have you guys been watching Jill Scott and Anika Noni Rose’s new HBO drama, The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency? The show first aired two weeks ago and I have seen repeats of each episode about 20 times. I watch very little television, mostly news and HGTV, so having an adult show I can watch and enjoy is truly a pleasure. Jill Scott is truly an amazing actress- just in case anyone thinks her performance in “Why Did I Get Married” was just a fluke. Anika Noni Rose is also amazing in her role as Jill’s secretary. Anika is such an underrated actress. She keeps getting cast alongside well known singers so attention for her is always rather sparse. Still, she owns each role she plays and just like in Dreamgirls, her comedic and sweet nature totally saves the day.
If you haven’t seen the show yet you can catch it on HBO Sunday nights at 8pm.
