That Grape Juice Reviews: Tyler Perry’s ‘The Haves & The Have Nots’ (Season 2 – Episode 1) #toodarnhot

Spoiler Alert: it’s going to be amazing, but we’re sure you already knew that.

That Grape Juice was privileged to be on hand for a private screening of the highly anticipated return of OWN‘s breakaway hit ‘Tyler Perry’s The Haves & The Have Nots’.  Hosted at Grand Tribeca Hotel in New York City, the cast and industry tastemakers alike piled in for an exclusive preview for what, unbeknownst at the time, would be an unforgettable, 42 minute thrill ride.

Any doubt that the series’ season 2 premiere would not do justice to its season 1 cliff-hanger of an ending were quickly erased as the show went from zero to 100 within the first few minutes of airing.  The first captivating minutes alone were just swift reminder that ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’ is a show that loves being bad and is so deliciously good at it.

Season 2′s premiere fulfills its promises of being #toodarnhot and brings viewers everything they are looking for in 42 minutes – palpable tension, entangling cast relationships (almost to a frustrating level), and comedic relief.  Well delivered comedic relief we might add.  Unexpected given that the over-the-top action on the show – a decorative “shade olympics” one might say – doesn’t border on the overflow of cheesy some might expect from a “soap opera”.

We give this one a definite A+ and hope the seasonbbrings with it more of what episode 1 was drenched in – discovery, sexiness, revenge, conflict, ambition, but most importantly, growth.  For, in all of its cattiness and thrilling moments, the show tackles some serious issues through the lens of imperfect people – a mainstay in Tyler Perry productions.

Take a word of advice from us – make sure your wig is secure before watching this premiere.  You’ll thank us later.

    Enjoyed the show, but enjoyed Being Mary Jane on BET even more, the writing for that show was so much better.

    I had high expectations but it was a flop! The writing must improve and the actors were horrible. Because I liked this show, I so hope it gets much better.
