Tonight was the DEBUT of New Edition's biopic and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!! I LOVED the fact that they used a majority of the first two hours of the biopic to capture them as kids!!! In most of the biopics that I have seen I always felt that they rushed the childhood portion of the story. I was so HAPPY to see that they took their time in telling the beginning of the New Edition story! I was able to have several unanswered questions that I had over the years addressed!!! I did not know that Bobby Brown was the one who INITIALLY had the idea for them to sing together as a group for a talent show performance. I also learned that it was their first manager that came up with their group name!! The most interesting fact was that Ralph Tresvant was offered a solo record deal that he turned down and instead asked that the group get signed!!!
I must say that the first part of this biopic is on to A GREAT START and has me WANTING MORE!!!
Did you watch part one of this biopic? If so what are your thoughts?
