BET will break into the UK market next week. I’m not sure if this is a good idea. It’s one thing to be ashamed of our own little BET and make fun of it and hope that “The Boondocks” will finally be able to air those hilarious satirical episodes that have been floating around YouTube, but showing it to “company”? I don’t know. Do we want our British cousins to see the debauchery that is “College Hill”? Even as a documentary series, is “American Gangster” a good export right now? I think it’s great that BET is in the position to expand, but I think said expansion should only be done when there’s really something positive to offer. BET is not quite there yet.
Where My Real Bloakes At?
