Mary Jane is a women whose professional life is well put together. She is determined, focused and bold. Her personal life is quite the opposite. While she takes full control of her professional life she is always playing victim in her personal life.

She is rich with a family that seems poor though she takes well care of them. Her family members show little interest in working or improving their own lot. She enables them yet berates them at the same time. Often her lectures are pure projections of her own bad behaviour.

She makes poor choices in her love life - choosing all the wrong men and ignoring the good ones. She has the resources to go to a sperm bank or adopt yet she steals sperm from a lover. She continues a relationship with a married man despite having other options. (She is played by Gabrielle Union so you know she too beautiful to not have lots of options.)

Union plays this role nicely. The rest of the cast is good as well. I am happy to see the lovely Raven Goodwin again.

I enjoy this and I have to keep reminding myself of the intro of the very first episode when it said 'this is just one black womans story'.. cos honestly? i mean really BET? a successful beautiful woman who CAN'T work out why her love life didn't go right despite it being slapped in her face every time and a woman so smart who can't see her own faults..

Other than that, I enjoy the show and topics brought up

A few episodes into the first season I thought I'd really found a great new show... With each episode this show actually gets worse.
Are they trying to make Mary Jane fill the "crazy black woman" stereotype? This woman contradicts herself from one ep to the next and acts as if she is half her age. It's sad because this could have been a great show. Less than average. Went from 3.5 stars to 2 for me.
