Perks! That’s one of the best things about being a writer. The perks.

So my perk today is getting to review the first couple of episodes of A&E’s The Jack5ons: A Family Dynasty.

Here’s some info:

A&E presents The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, a new real-life series that
will chronicle the personal and professional lives of Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and
Marlon as they prepare for a Jackson Five reunion, while also coming to terms
with the tragic lossof Michael’s . The series premieres Sunday, December 13 with
back-to-back one-hour episodes beginning at 9:00pm ET/PT. The series will then
move to its regularly scheduled time, Sundays at 10:00pm ET/PT beginning
December 20 on A&E.

The show will follow the brothers as they record
vocals for a song on Michael’s This Is It soundtrack; attend the bittersweet
premiere of the film; travel to London to support Tito, who is a special guest
star for musical legend Gladys Knight at a Wembley Arena concert performance;
and try to balance their obligations as The Jackson Five while also pursuing
their individual interests and projects.

Like I said, I’ve got the first couple of episodes and I will watch and review. Check back on Saturday for my thoughts.

And to bribe you to return, I may give stuff away. Maybe. It’s Christmas afterall and you gotta be on the nice list. And you have been good all year, right?

If I were y’all, I’d check back in tomorrow.

But I will leave you with this:
