I don't know the more detailed technical aspects of what I am watching. That being said I thought the show itself looked very nice. Clean and crisp, nice cuts.
In my mind this show is a hybrid between a journalistic documentary (an element of jon stewart's contributional presence), a reality-esque theme and an excellent example of what an honest, personal, insightful discord looks like. Together, in my eyes, these facets spawn a new type of format for a series. One featuring the very tribalism they discuss in the show. Maybe I'm wrong on that. Idk. Wait now I am realizing that that's probably what happens in a black barber shop anyway and why it's called the shop in the first place goddamnit.
Call me bold or over enthusiastic or whatever but I truly believe it's hard not to be empathic and more mindful to the reality of the black expirence in America, no matter how educated on the subject you may be.
A nice compliment to Hard Knocks on a spots-centric Tuesday night.
