Godfather of Harlem (Epix) Rated TV-MA

A show depicts the life of Bumpy Johnson, a gangster in 1960s Harlem. Starring Lucy Fry, Forest Whitaker, and Demi Singleton.

Bumpy returns to Harlem after being in the Alcatraz penitentiary for 11 years. He’s coming back to a new Harlem, but he’s staking his claim. It’s a story that has been told before. The characters are brought to life with the best actors, but the story has nothing new. It doesn’t have the same pull as other stories that draw you into their world. It’s a show that is interesting only because it’s based on a true story. It’s still one that is worth a watch.
