Queen Latifah is known for her music and later her acting accolades. Being the lead in the new CBS series The Equalizer is another step in her career progression.  This iteration in the franchise is based on the original 1980s series starring Edward Woodard. The current show is about an enigmatic figure who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn.

Queen Latifah’s character Robyn McCall, is a woman with a mysterious background. She came across to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is “The Equalizer” — an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden. As she struggles with her past actions, she is dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption.

FiWEH Take

At the end of the day, this series just started and critics are saying their piece which may not be kind.  As a fan of Queen Latifah and the franchise, I believe she is a good fit especially for CBS.  This show reminds me of one of my favorites anchored by Timothy Dalton “Leverage” except in this she is a former CIA agent and they were drifters.  The concept is the same though, their desire to help those who have no where to turn.  Another factor is CBS providing the full pilot episode on YouTube to garner viewer interest is proof they want the show to succeed.  

Fans have a myriad of reactions to the first episode.

“What can I do to thank you?” “Go be something” I watched this with low expectations and loved almost everything about it 👏 You’ve got me for at least one more episode.

I like it for various reasons so I will put it on my queue.  Watch the episode below and tell us what you think?
