The long-running FX hit Snowfall never ceases to amaze me. Let's forget the fact that Damson Idris's Franklin Saint has reached Scarface levels of iconic, or that this show about the crack crisis in 1980s Los Angeles somehow found a way to be both entertaining as hell and still educate the world about what being Black at that time, in that place, really meant. Let's also put aside the fact that this series, in many ways, is far removed from what it once was in the beginning, but in a good way, because it only ever seems to improve -- like the aging of a fine wine. What are we left with, if we forget all those things? Well, we're still left with one of the dopest, most culturally authentic and gritty crime dramas to stream into our homes since Boyz n the Hood hit Hulu Plus. My only question now is, with the series still not having been picked up for a sixth season, could this be the end? I'm not going to lie; it kind of feels that way.
