Snowfall – Season 3 Review

Snowfall – Season 3 Review

Movie Reviews this week looks at season 3 of the much lauded crime drama created by the late John Singleton (Boyz in the Hood) Snowfall.

It continues the story of the rise of crack cocaine in South Central Los Angeles, with our protagonist Franklin Saint payed charmingly by Damson Idris, as not only controlling the crack cocaine in Los Angeles, but having to deal with competitors in the form of Drew “Manboy” Miller played by Melvin Gregg (Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No).

Surprisingly after Franklin’s episode in jail, his mother Cissy Saint played by Michael Hyatt (Nightcrawler), has come around to accepting her son’s life choice, as long as she does not lose him; so it is a little bit of a surprise compared to the first two seasons to see Cissy and Franklin buying properties together.

Franklin’s uncle Jerome Saint played by Amin Joseph (Baywatch) has also branched out in opening a nightclub possibly to satisfy Aunt Louie played by Angela Lewis (The Good Wife) who always had eyes on Claudia Crane’s (played by the wonderful Judith Scott (Flightplan)) nightclub , and even Franklin’s father, Alton Saint, played by Kevin Carroll (The Walking Dead) has come off his street addiction to reconcile with Cissy, and even help Cissy and Franklin.

Meanwhile Franklin’s neighbour, the police officer Andre Wright, played by Marcus Henderson (Get Out) comes to the stark reality of what the drug is doing to his community.

Franklin’s love interest Melody played by the gorgeous Reign Edwards (The Bold and the Beautiful) is about to go to college, but may be a bit reluctant, seeing her father Andre, has not taken her on the road trip he promised her they would go on if she got into college.

CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) operative Teddy Macdonald played by Carter Hudson, has to contend with dealing with someone in his past when he contacts the agency, after being expressly told not to, and Gustavo ‘El Oso’ Zapata played by Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Rambo: last Blood) makes headway into new routes with his love interest’s family, who has mysteriously gone AWOL.

The viewers get to see how Franklin has progressed from a small time drug dealer dealing in cannabis, to being the boss of a large drug dealing network, now expanding into a select clientele, regardless of the moral impacts of his decision, which makes Snowfall a fascinating series to watch.
