This was all of us, really.

Bobby Brown was quoted as saying that the young man who played him “Did a better job of playing me that I could play me!” After watching Part I, it’s completely true!

Get a rundown of cast members here, because these boys did a HELL of a job!

News and Fan Reactions:

Shout out to Donnie Wahlberg!  We could always see the influence of NE on NKOTB!

Favorite Moment: Collectively, everyone agrees that the young boys that played NE in the early years were excellent!  And the way that BET transitioned from the younger actors to the adults was epic!

This compilation of hilarious reactions from Black Twitter is spot on!

Our favorite word smith Awesomely Luvvie came through with the Part 1 Recap, all in the form of questions ???????

This Twitter pretty much sums it all up!  We'll be parked on our couches for the next two nights to watch!  Check back here for more reactions and thoughts on the rest of the series as it airs!


Part Two of the New Edition Story gave us the background of the group from their New Edition Album (1984, Mr. Telephone Man + Cool It Now) through Heart Break (1988, Can You Stand the Rain + If It Isn't Love)??

So much happened in those few years!  I knew I couldn't have been the only person with lots of questions.

A few things were apparent: Bobby Brown is his own worst enemy. He and Mike seemingly had the most amount of physical fights- behind closed doors and on stage, they didn't care.

We also see Ralph start to consider going solo and Johnny Gill being brought in. So. MANY. SHADY. THINGS!  If you didnt' catch the entire episode, you can watch it in full here:
