Now that I've finally caught up on my DVR recordings, I've had the chance to watch BET's Harlem Heights, which premiered on March 2nd. Being that I am a reality TV fanatic, I knew that I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to see young, educated professional BGs and guys living in the culturally rich, legendary neighborhood of Harlem.
I've never been impressed by BET's programming or lack thereof, but after watching the first 3 episodes, to my surprise I actually like it. The show doesn't seem to stray from the recipe of dating/love, friendships, and drama that typically make a "reality" TV show successful. Although there seems to be a bit of cattiness brewing on the show, it's still refreshing to see BGs and guys being primarily portrayed positively on TV.
You can catch full episodes on BET.com.
Now that it's been on the air for 3 weeks, what do you guys think? Have you seen it or do you avoid BET at all costs? Share your thoughts!
