"For Colored Boys, Redemption" is one of the best web series that I've seen. I felt a strong connection to all of the characters and was hooked after watching the first episode.
In fact, I was inspired to start my own web series after finishing the first season. Why? Because there is a need for unfiltered voices in media. Too many times, great shows get passed up by studio execs because the plots deviate from the norm. That's why TV is boring and corny nowadays. Real people don't exist to most Hollywood writers.
You might not like the series like I do, but give it a try.
