Being Mary Jane: Storm Advisory  Season 1, Episode 1

This is the pilot episode of Being Mary Jane that followed up on the successful tv movie pilot (considered Episode 0 by Wikipedia). The episode follows up on events from that pilot film, but also recaps things well in case you haven't seen it: "Mary Jane Paul—all dimples and curves—is the daughter of a wealthy airline executive. She’s the star of “Talk Back with Mary Jane Paul,” a show that resembles Melissa Harris-Perry’s: it’s a mix of hard news and life-style pieces, and it has turned Mary Jane into a role model for other black women. Her home life, naturally, is a wreck." [more inside]
