Truth and Humor - Episode 2
28 August 2015 | by deniserudeeSee all my reviews

Episode 1 interested me enough to watch Episode 2. This is where I really saw the potential of this show. Within the "typical" sitcom styling, is a gift of dialog about painful and volatile issues in an up-front and personal way, while creating laughter along with empathy. I am happy to see we have a "Black" show where the characters can talk about real life, and be funny, silly, vulnerable, intelligent, and human without being caricatures. I will be even happier when we have a show with primarily Black actors (or Asian, or Latino, or any other not-seen-in-large-numbers-on-TV group) that will be just a show, not a "insert ethnicity" show. This is one of those shows that might help that along. Kudos to the writers, actors and producers. I wish them success.
