When We Rise (2017)
Defied Expectations
6 March 2017
I just finished watching the premiere episode and I must say, I was very impressed. I was on the fence about watching this because I read a few semi-negative/average reviews of the series. However, all I'm going to say is I strongly disagree with calling this series anything other than excellent thus far. Especially when you compare it to what else is out there. I definitely came in with relatively average expectations, but was very pleasantly surprised. I'm glad a few reviews didn't dissuade me from watching a great series. You can tell ABC put in a good amount of time, effort and resources to make this and it shows in the superb quality of the content they produced. I highly recommend you give this series a shot. Especially if you're on the fence like I was, because you might just end up really liking it. UPDATE: Just finished the series and I loved it! Especially the last two episodes. It was a great overview of LGBTQ+ history and how it got to be where it is today - while still making it interesting and highlighting the three main activists in the story Roma, Cleve & Ken.
