Happy Wine Wednesday and Happy Wu Wednesday! Candi is with me this week to talk to y'all about a show you should absolutely be watching, Wu-Tang: An American Saga.
I was drawn to this show because I love Wu-Tang Clan so very, very much. We get into our history with the group and what their catalog has meant to us. But let me be VERY clear, you do not have to be a Wu-Tang Clan fan (although, why wouldn't you be?) nor do you have to even know who Wu-Tang is (again, why wouldn't you know?) to enjoy this show because at its core, it is excellent storytelling and equally amazing acting. Good television is good television!
Normally, I would do a discussion about the pilot episode as a gateway for listeners to a show. But I couldn't resist the spectacular episode 6 of season 2 - "Protect Ya Neck" - for the topic of this discussion. It perfectly exemplifies why this show is much see television. And Candi, who had not watched any of the series before, agreed that it was a perfectly fine introduction to the show and she did not feel lost - so take the leap! Listen to our discussion and check out the episode. And once you check out the episode, go back and start from the beginning. Depending on your country, it will be available on either Hulu or Disney Plus.
I timed this release to coincide with the Season 3 premiere. Season 3 is the final season of the series, so I wanted to honor it by discussing one of the strongest episodes of the series to hopefully get this great show on your radar. This is a cast of superstars and I'm so happy that this series introduced me to each and every one of them.
It made my heart so full - which you'll hear in my terrible attempts at dropping some of my favorite Wu verses - to do this episode as a love letter to both the rap group I love so very much and the brilliant, talented cast who brought this story to life.
Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a good time!
