The Gabbening is upon us- only sans Gabrielle Union... she's busy... being Mary Jane. The breaks have been cut on this episode and it is full speed ahead in a series of Hot Topic issues. What is Chris Brown doing on our beloved show 'Black*ish', and the portrayal of women on the show gets debated. The 2018 Elections- it's already time to get ready, who are some interesting candidates, and how will gerrymandering effect a congressional shakeup? In tangent city James walks us through his first NYC velvet rope experience (and no we are not talking about the hit late 90's Janet Jackson album). Do you know what James' favorite disco jam is? You'll find out! We also walk through what all the pop star mascots are. You know about the Bee hive for Beyonce- but what are Ciara's fans called? Toys R' US- are kids still playing with toys? Plus Barry Manilow is gay!

It's that time of year again! Yes the Emmy's but most importantly it's the MK Black Suspense Movie Review, as every September Hollywood releases what should be a Lifetime movie to the big screen. The reviews are in: Save your money and watch last years amazing Perfect Stranger, and enjoy our Spoiler Review of 'When The Bough Breaks' or what it should've been called 'Go Tell Your Wife AKA Morris Messes Up'. But first, James might be on Mariah Carey levels of celebrity after his hit San Francisco Show, where like Mariah he doesn't know JLO. It's a historical Emmy's because Black*ish is nominated for Outstanding comedy, the first Black show since 1985... so apparently the Oscars ain't the only thing that are so white. James has some facts and figures on this surprising situation. I mean come on! Where's Urkell's Emmy!? Nnekay is throwing us some history with medical advancements created by Black surgeons in perilous times. Thank you Black doctors for so many life saving techniques and practices. You probably had no idea. Well that's why we're here! Also are you getting down on the Get Down- you will be after James' stark raving mad review (and he's only an episode in).
