Yesterday, we were making fun of Eddie Cibrian…whose ex-wife was dissing him on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Well today…we can say something good about Eddie and his blossoming career at the age of 38. NBC’s new prime-time series The Playboy Club is doing really well. I don’t want to giveaway any spoilers, all I have to say is this show is a must see. I was a little skeptical at first, Eddie isn’t known for his glorious acting skills, and I’ve never seen Amber Heard smile…but the show is actually really well done.
From the intro, the storyline picks up…and leaves you guessing as to what’s going to happen next. When the fat bald guy starts harassing Amber’s character in the backroom…Eddie comes to the rescue…and then we find out who the guy really is.
Throughout the entire show you just keep finding out little tidbits of information…that unravel the entire story….and trust me they save the best for last!
And I’m not trying to be the one to point out the elephant in the room…but I’m pretty sure in the 60s African Americans were still being discriminated in the States. Especially, a business venue like The Playboy Club. Although there is 1 African American bunny…they still mange to bring up some racial issues of that time which is really cool. They obviously make her the token black girl that’s the lead’s best friend. She’s got popular slogan’s like “Girrrrl, you better watch yoself” or “Girrrl, we know what you were doing with him, come on sugar”
Anyways, the writing is really well done, it’s never cheesy or tacky…it keeps you on the edge of your seat…and it definitely has swag bringing in a young ‘Hugh Hefner’ as the actual Playboy Club owner. (They just never show his face)
And really, who didn’t love the 60s?
