I’m addicted to The mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl!
It’s a web series that I was told about in the late Summer by my coworker homie, who actually knows creator, Issa Rae. He told me he thought I’d like it (probably because of my own awkwardness), and that I should check it out. At the time, Episode 2 was on his screen, I watched maybe a minute, didn’t understand what was going on, and just forgot about the show. Another month later he told me about it again, but I still didn’t check it out. It wasn’t until over the last couple weeks, I started seeing the web series’ name continuously popping up in my Facebook news feed, and being mentioned by quite the many females that I think are pretty darn cool. Finally I was swayed, I was having some technical difficulties during an all nighter, so what the hell, I had time.
Within the 1st 10 seconds of episode 1…
“Am I the only one who pretends I’m in a music video when I’m by myself?”
I was hooked. There are only 11 episodes, the 11th which just came out December 1st, so that night I sat and watched all of them back to back. Sadly, I have to admit, I did the same thing the next night; watched the whoooole series…and half the episodes again, the day after that… I said I was addicted.
No one has really ever attempted to entertain my demographic, and although rapping isn’t my way to deal with stress, there were so many things throughout the episodes that were relatable! Both the story and character(s) are ACTUALLY relatable to me and my life, currently or in the past. Plus I was continuously laughing because the writing is darn good, better than half these sitcoms on TV.
Anyway, I can go on and on, but check out the series here. I took the liberty of posting Episode 1 below.
See what others have been talking about…it really is that good.
