I was hoping I had a new series to watch but it looks like that won't be the case. The first episode was extremely well written and acted. Great story line too. But unfortunately the second episode was ruined by too many remarks about peoples color. It gets very boring very quickly because of that. For once I would love to watch a program that didn't have to constantly remind you what a persons color was. I mean hey, guess what, I can see what color everyone is already. It just seems so cheesy to have the reminders. Or is that all the show is going to be about. Seems limiting. You can feel the change between episode one and episode two.
But I have to say I think the acting is fantastic, especially Issa Rae who is also the creator. And I love that it's set in Los Angeles. You know, the real Los Angeles.
