A spectacular series indeed.
From the begin of the series you have an idea of what it will be about, and it seems like an obvious task to complete, nothing more than 3 episodes if stretched out you assume. This is when the complexities of life are carved carefully and the task at hand isn’t as easy as 1 would like to think.

The series brings to light the social status, rankings for teenagers, sheds light on what dating as a teenager seems like and the pressures a teenager may be facing but in a gentle way, so as not to deviate from the storyline.
1 of things I really appreciated about the storyline and character development is that those who seem to be portrayed as the bad influence at first glance are allowed to share their voice in way that you understand their stories. And those who at first glance seem like they are the good influence, you start questioning their morals and ethics about how far they would go to get the job done.
At this point, you should know about the Nasty C cameo, which was really impressive from him. Also, if you had seen Rowlene’s post, you’d also know about her music being in the series. Just a shout out to them for doing amazing work.
Blood & Water really feels like you are watching an international standard series, with a local touch to it whether it be the music, actors and shots. They don’t force the African narrative on you but you are completely aware it’s an African original.
This definitely deserves a second season. Definitely the content I subscribed for on Netflix.
