User Reviews

 
Surprisingly good!!

this show is well-written, funny and actually contains some surprises. I read a few reviews claiming that it mocks Christianity and so on but believe me, those people haven't watched the show. I say that because the reviews they write complain about things that this show simply doesn't contain.

the show is about a black Jesus in Compton who hangs around a crew of failures and whilst he intends to grow weed, he holds high morals akin to the Christian Jesus.

It's a witty show not totally unlike the movie "Friday" but with a lot of heart and uplifting moments.

Not overly odd like a lot of Adult Swim stuff.

I liked it and I'd recommend watching the show before you judge it.
