Not a one star show.
11 March 2019 | by thegoodthebadSee all my reviews

Everyone's different but I really enjoyed it. Maybe people giving it one star reviews didn't watch it, didn't like the title or are mad because the show is from a perspective they're not used to seeing. I'm not sure of the reason but this show is definitely worth more than one star. The acting is fantastic, the writing is witty and smart and keeps you hooked episode to episode. There's something there for everyone. I personally connected most with Lionel because being a nerdy black person has always been challenging because society tells black people they have to fit into a certain box and unfortunately a lot of black people buy into that so if you're not in the box you're on the outside. I also connected with Coco (feeling less than even though you're boss) and Troy (the pressure of living up to your parents expectations).

If you're a person trying to live up to the expectations of their parents, a person that doesn't feel pretty enough, someone who's always overlooked because of a friend, someone finding themselves for the first time, a nerd that doesn't fit in, someone who wants someone who doesn't want them back, someone who loves someone who makes you question what love is then this show is for you! There's so many stories it has to tell and it's not as simple as black and white.

Yes there are conversations about race and it's a conversation that unfortunately still needs to be had (look at the one star reviews) but it's not preachy.

Check it out for yourself! Give it at least 3 eps.
