The New Edition Story was still lit for episode 2 last night (Jan. 26). Bobby Brown was acting a fool, Mike Bivins got woke to the music business and Ralph Tresvant stayed all in his feelings.
The commercials were still OD, but in the episode we saw a roller coaster of emotions with New Edition having to deal with shady business managers, family stress and plenty of personal drama.
We didn’t even mention the inner-group conflict, too. Of course, the Twitter audience shared their opinions too.
Peep the reactions—ranging from comedy to petty—below and on the flip. Let’s start with…
Black Twitter got extra hype when they heard the classic “Can You Stand The Rain.”

"Can You Stand the Rain" is a perfect song and I cannot believe how good this cover sounds. Cannot believe it! #NewEditionBET

No shade, but many can’t believe BET did such a good job.

I hope Lifetime is watching #NewEditionBET and taking notes. THIS is how you do a biopic.
