The new, TNT series, Claws, premiered Sunday night and it was a hit! Starring Niecy Nash, Karrueche Tran, Judy Reyes and more, episode one was filled with girl power and girl drama as well. The show is set in Palmetto, Florida, where the leading roles all play manicurists. They are not your average manicurists, though. Along with their nail files, you can find loaded guns at their stations as well. Exciting, yet terrifying, right?
The storyline of the show is interesting and different from what TV watchers are used to seeing. These women are able to create flawless-looking nails during the day, but launder money and murder at night, which is unusual. The show brings out a new breed of feminists and girl power advocates. Women are capable of doing just about anything; even if that includes them being wanted for murder.
First time viewers took to Twitter and revealed their own opinions of the new show using the tagline, #ClawsTNT. Fans were in shock at the graphic scenes that were shown, but the scandalous displays helped to keep everyone in suspense. Talk about a TNT drama! Fans questioned if it was even legal to show some of the graphic scenes that were presented on TNT last night. Legal or not, the show was a favorite amongst viewers! Many revealed that they must make it a “regular” to view along with Empire, Orange is the New Black, and the many other amazing shows that we have all been happy to observe.
Actress and model, Karrueche Tran, live tweeted as her followers tweeted along during the show. Tran wanted to know what her fans thought of the new series, and they responded positively towards every scene! Karrueche received ‘Congratulations’ tweets from Bridget Kelly and Uncle Snoop Dogg. Last night was a stellar night for her! Some viewers doubted if Karrueche could act in a series such as Claws, but after seeing last night’s premiere, many of the disbelievers became supporters! Is Karrueche the next, big actress in Hollywood?
If you were not able to catch the new, hit series, you can always watch it online, using the TNT website. Episode one, titled “Tirana,” will definitely keep you coming back for more! Make sure to grab your popcorn and drinks next weekend! Catch Claws on TNT every Sunday at 9pm eastern time.
