Just the everyday life of a lady who runs into everyday issues while black. Love the show, funny, accurate, and just awesome. Loving this spin off can't wait to see more. I am very interested with the focus placed on Issa's thoughts, this truly makes her and the show instantly lovable. The co star molly also brings a very true and accurate representation on professionally accomplished women who in-turn almost surely are considered over qualified for meaningful relationships. I am hoping this will change the dynamics of how African women are perceived both personally and professionally. The perspective of insecure is spot on and there is no doubt it truly mirrors a few of the struggles of A.A. Women today. I am glad to see some of the characters from the YouTube series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl they are faces I recognize. Though their characters have changed they truly make the transition from the YouTube series to the HBO series very familiar yet fresh at the same time. So far I have enjoyed laughing and relating to the characters and I am looking forward to future episodes.
