This show will definitely be cancelled
19 October 2017 | by Nathan2020See all my reviews

So if you're wondering, I'll save you some time, NO! Do not watch this show. You don't need to check if you'll like it, you just won't.

Maybe it could've been okay, but it took a wrong turn very early on. The protagonist is very unlikable and makes his race the centre of all his interactions with any non-black character.

I think the writer made an attempt at making a show that would confront RACISM, especially given the tensions in America at the moment. However, instead, it comes across as quite preachy and in your face.

The jokes are bland and kinda distasteful. I genuinely don't know who this show is for! it feels like it's generations behind and definitely not in a good way.

I seriously don't think this show will appeal to many (if any) people regardless of race. It would be a huge shock if this show was green lit for a second season.

Edit: Was looking at my reviews (a year since posting this one) I read the title and wondered if it was actually cancelled. In short: it was cancelled lololol TOLD YOU!
