2:26 PM


From BlackFilm.com

Synopsis: Based on the best-selling novel series by Alexander McCall Smith, "Detective Agency" chronicles the adventures of Precious Ramotswe, the proprietor of the only female-owned detective agency in Botswana. Singer Jill Scott will take the lead role of Precious Ramotswe in the Botswana-based version of Alexander McCall Smith's best-selling novel, which will be directed and written by Anthony Minghella and co-written by Richard Curtis.

As a child, Precious learns from her father a great love for her country and the skills necessary to make a fine detective. After his death, Precious sets up her agency. It is a risky endeavour but with the help of her quirky secretary, Mma Makutsi (Anika Noni Rose), she soon finds her services much in demand. Precious investigates cases, helps people solve problems in their lives, and soon finds a special friendship blossoming with JLB Matekoni (Lucian Msamati), the highly respectable and slightly shy owner of Tklokweng Road Speedy Motors.

My Thoughts:

I thought the show was great....I was a little skeptical from watching the previews but I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was....The characters are hilarious and the show was so well written...I'll definitely be checking in again.....Sunday nights on HBO.

Check out Jill's fro...I love it !

6 People Obsessing!

  1. i love her fro! and she plays that character so well. Based on the previews, I also thought it might be too cheesy, but it was adorable. Loved every scene with Anika Noni Rose too, she definitely stole them all.

  2. I caught the pilot last night and I must say that I enjoyed the show immensely. I couldn't help but notice all the colorful dresses, head wraps and earrings for Jill's character. The actress that played the secretary had me in stitches. Also, the young lady who played Happy was gorgeous! I'm definitely tuning in for the next show.

  3. The secretary was in DreamGirls...She was the one creeping with Eddie Murphy's character....she was so good on the show

  4. I need to catch it.

  5. i can not WAIT until this show starts back up! rarely do you see an HBO original series that shows people like us in positive light. the show is humerous while also though provoking and jill and anika do an excellant job with their characters!

  6. I loved this show! I'm mad that they cut it off without a proper ending (or did I miss something?)
