User Reviews

 
Low reviews perfectly demonstrate what the show talks about
15 June 2020 | by lewisrookeSee all my reviews

Pretty good and hard to stop watching once you're attached to the characters.

People saying the situations are cliché or everything is a stereotype are part of the problem. These are very believable situations, probably taken from real experiences.

I am white. Why do other white people (not all) find it uncomfortable to be told we have white privilege. We do, whether you like it or not. Doesn't make you racist but it does mean you don't get treated differently because of your race. Rather than slating a show that is trying to educate and demonstrate what life is like from the perspective of people of colour, try listening and attempt to understand their side, instead of shutting down and getting defensive.
