UnReal "Fugitive" Review - AVClub

AVClub: UnREAL got a huge reaction to last week’s episode, most of it not great. It was a solid effort, except for the fact that the show made the grave error of depicting a police stop pulling over two black men that ended in one of the men getting shot--then choosing to tell the story through the eyes of the depressed white woman who orchestrated the pullover, a heinous act in a string of heinous acts, this season especially. On The A.V. Club alone, it sparked a morning-after interview with the writer of the episode, Ariana Jackson, who said that she also wanted more time to show what happened to Darius and Romeo after the shooting, as well as an excellent For Our Consideration article by Joshua Alston on why this storyline, and others like it, just don’t work.

The story is too old to be commented.
